Knee pain can be a serious issue that affects your everyday life and routine activities regardless of your age or stage of life. It could be due to a sports-related injury, degeneration over time, or a car accident. Persistent or increasing pain requires a thorough analysis of the injury and may require multiple approaches to restore and recover.
While some knee pain may be minor and easily remedied through physical therapy, recommended exercises, or chiropractic care, chronic or worsening pain may seem like your only options are long term use of pain relieving drugs or knee replacement surgery.
Fortunately, there are natural alternatives to relieving pain and inflammation and healing it without medications or surgeries through the use of regenerative medicine.
Regenerative Medicine for Knee Pain
Regenerative medicine is an alternative to knee replacement surgery, and it offers faster, longer lasting, and natural healing without pain masking medications or extensive recovery periods. Regenerative treatments with growth factors can help restore mobility and promote healing.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative medicine treatment often used to heal knee injuries. Platelets are the smallest type of blood cell and are triggered to react in your body when injury occurs.
PRP treatments utilize this unique ability by drawing a sample of your own blood and separating the platelets. Once they are isolated, they are reinfected into the injured area to speed up the recovery process. PRP treatments have proven effective in reducing pain and inflammation and promoting healing of soft tissue injuries.
Cell therapy with mesenchymal cells is another regenerative treatment used for knee pain. Mesenchymal cells are derived from the umbilical cord of newborn babies in cesarean sections. There is no harm or side effects to mother or child during this procedure. Because mesenchymal cells are young cells, they have more effective growth factors and when used to treat knee injuries, they have an incredible ability to heal and end the pain.
