Non-Surgical Treatment for Knee Pain
Knee replacement surgery is becoming more and more common, especially as the population ages. And while surgery may remove the issues that were affecting your knee joint, it is highly invasive and can lead to even greater issues.
There’s always the chance of infection when having surgery, and a knee replacement requires a lengthy recovery and rehabilitation process that doesn’t always result in your knee functioning as smoothly as it should.
Treating painful knees with medication is another common tactic, but you’re really only masking the symptom and not addressing the underlying cause of the pain. Our treatments like human cellular tissue and platelet-rich plasma get to the root cause of your sore knees to help provide relief that lasts.
Both of these regenerative treatments consist of injections into your damaged or degraded knee tissue that helps your body’s own natural healing mechanism resolve the issue that’s causing the pain. Our treatments are minimally invasive and typically require little to no downtime.
PRP therapy or platelet-rich plasma therapy starts when we take a sample of your blood and place it in a centrifuge to spin. As the blood sample spins, the red blood cells separate from the platelets to create platelet-rich plasma. This PRP contains healing properties that are injected to help facilitate the healing process.
Human cellular tissue therapy is derived from tissue that we source from accredited tissue banks.
The injections made from that tissue contain powerful healing compounds that include:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Growth factors
- Amino acids
Osteoarthritis of the Knee
When osteoarthritis is present in the knee, the protective cartilage on either side of the bones has worn away. This leaves bone to rub against bone.
This can be painful and debilitating in a non-weight-bearing joint. In the knee joint, it can make every step almost unbearable.
Osteoarthritis is often caused just by normal aging and general wear and tear. Finding an effective non-surgical solution will allow you to get back to doing the things you love without the risks of surgery or medication. Our regenerative treatments can be used to treat osteoarthritis of the knee and help you find relief.
