Do you experience knee pain when bending? Your knees and joints are sensitive to wear and tear. Aging or weight gain can also cause your knees to wear down even faster. Knee problems make it harder for you to run, walk, bend, or even put weight on your knees. Fortunately, we have groundbreaking regenerative medicine pain relief treatments to treat your symptoms naturally. Our doctor has successfully helped patients in Charleston, Illinois and surrounding cities heal without painful knee replacement surgery.
Knee Pain Relief
The bones, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that help your knees to function correctly are susceptible to disease and injury. Thanks to advancements in regenerative medicine, there are viable alternatives to treat your knee pain, such as platelet-rich plasma and regenerative cell treatments with Wharton's Jelly derived mesenchymal stem cells. Regenerative medicine treatments focus on stimulating your body’s natural cell regeneration abilities so that we can heal your sore knees.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Since your circulatory system is the passageway for healing agents, and your knee has few blood vessels, it’s challenging for your body to repair damage in this area. Platelets are some of the first responders to injury and are carried in your blood. Platelet-rich plasma injections stimulate healing by providing important growth factors from your blood directly to the tissues in your knees. Platelet-rich plasma injections are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, and spine conditions. When injected, directly into your knees, PRP may be able to:
- Regenerate cartilage
- Repair tendons, ligaments, and meniscus
- Relieve nerve damage
- Reduce pain
- Help you avoid surgery
Other all-natural treatments such as chiropractic care, trigger point injections, and laser therapy are also effective knee pain treatments. These therapies have numerous benefits for knee pain relief, including:
- Natural, non-invasive procedures
- Recovery time is minimal
- Reduced risk of side effects and adverse reactions
- Little to no chance of complications
- Outpatient procedures performed in the clinic
Treatments containing Stem Cells for Knees
Wharton's Jelly derived Mesenchymal stem cells can repair a torn meniscus, torn ligaments, torn tendons, and cartilage. The cell-based therapies at our medical clinic use stem cells and amnion from birth tissues. These substances invigorate your healing mechanisms, neutralizing inflammation and accelerating repair.
Young and healthy stem cells, once injected into your knees, can locate damaged tissue and enhance repair and regeneration, giving you fast knee pain relief. Regenerative cell injections can be used as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with other treatments.
Knee Pain Causes
Chronic knee pain can be caused by injuries, arthritis, and other problems, such as:
- Torn meniscus
- MCL tear
- Runner’s knee
- Joint pain
- Knee tendonitis
- Knee bursitis
Whether you have knee joint pain, water on the knee, or pain in the back of the knees, regenerative medicine may be the answer for you. We provide comprehensive and personalized treatment plans to give you the most effective, least invasive solution possible for healing.
