A sore knee can be impossible to ignore. Whether your knee pain is constant or intermittent, we have multiple options to treat both chronic and acute conditions. Our medical clinic offers the latest, most advanced pain therapies that may help you recover from virtually any condition that’s causing knee pain.
Knee pain can be as simple as a slight strain or as serious as degenerative knee disease. Come see us to find out why our natural pain relief treatments may be your best option to get rid of your knee pain.
Knee Pain Relief Treatments
Regenerative medicine typically includes platelet-rich plasma injections and regenerative treatments that include cytokines, growth factors, proteins and more. Both can be highly effective at relieving knee pain.
Wharton's Jelly is an ethically and painlessly sourced material from the donated umbilical cords of newborns at the time of planned cesarean delivery. It has been successful in helping those suffering with knee pain. The amount of growth factors, cytokines, hyaluronic acid, cellular components and extracellular vesicles are higher in Wharton’s Jelly compared to other biologics.
Once the components are injected into your knee, they go to work to help calm inflammation and begin to help your body's natural process of repairing and regenerating the particular tissue needed for healing.
The tissue works as an instructor for other cells in your body. It recruits other cells in your body to the area most needed, and instructs them on how to best help you heal. They have been known to help muscles, connective tissue, cartilage, and bone.
Platelet-rich plasma injections are often just as effective for certain types of knee pain. Platelet-rich plasma is made from your own blood. When you come in for your platelet-rich plasma treatment, the injection is prepared right here in the clinic. The platelets are separated from the other blood components to concentrate them into rich plasma. Platelets are high in growth factors and cytokines, and when concentrated and injected into the injured tissues of your knee, they enhance the body’s natural healing.
Trigger point injections can be effective for knee pain involving a particular muscle. An injection of sarapin, a natural anti-inflammatory agent, found in the pitcher plant, relaxes the muscle and promotes healing of the knee injury.
Laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive treatment that can effectively treat some types of knee pain. The doctor uses a laser that emits a particular wavelength of low-intensity light into the affected tissue of the knee, where it stimulates the surrounding cells, increases blood flow, and helps the injury to heal.
Regenerative Therapy for Knees
The benefits of growth factors, cytokines and other healing components in regenerative therapy for knee pain may include:
- Long-lasting results, and patients often report immediate pain relief
- A safe alternative to knee surgery
- Drug-free treatment
- Effective for a wide range of knee problems, both chronic and acute
- Minimal discomfort or downtime as the result of the injection
Common Causes of Knee injuries
Knee pain is commonly caused by degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis or structural misalignment around the hip, knee, and ankle joints. Poor posture, overuse, repetitive stress, and physical trauma also cause knee issues.
Other factors can increase your risk of having knee problems, including:
- Physical abnormalities (e.g., having one leg shorter than the other)
- Lack of muscle flexibility or strength
- Sports activities that place more significant stress on your knees
- Previous injuries
