A sore knee can be impossible to ignore. Whether your knee pain is constant or intermittent, we have multiple options to treat chronic and acute knee conditions. Our medical clinic offers the latest, most advanced pain therapies that will 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 and find out why our natural pain relief treatments may be your best option to get rid of your knee pain.
Knee Pain Relief
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 heal.
Regenerative medicine treatments include platelet-rich plasma injections and regenerative cell therapy. Both are highly effective at relieving knee pain.
The growth factors and stem cells in our regenerative cell therapy come from donor tissue obtained from established tissue banks strictly regulated by the FDA and the American Association of Tissue Banks. These mesenchymal stem cells are ethically and painlessly obtained from the umbilical cords of newborns at the time of planned cesarean delivery. Once these new young cells are injected into your knee, they immediately calm inflammation and then begin to repair and regenerate whatever particular tissue is needed for healing. Stem cells can change into any type of cell required by the body, such as those that make up the muscles, connective tissue, cartilage, or 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.
Stem Cells for Knees
The benefits of growth factors and stem cells in regenerative cell therapy for knee pain 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. In addition, 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
