Your knees bear the brunt of every step you take, and as a result, are vulnerable to degenerative conditions and injuries. Some of the most common causes of knee pain include:
Knee pain can develop gradually, or it could stem from a sports injury or another type of accident. It may be accompanied by swelling, instability, and a reduced range of motion.
While knee pain is common, that doesn’t mean that you have to accept it as a normal part of life. Pain from mild knee injuries usually goes away with a couple of days of rest, and at-home care like ice and over-the-counter pain relievers. If this isn’t the case for you, or if your pain gets worse instead of better, call Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine.
The team at Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine offers expert assessments and customized treatment plans to address the root cause of your knee pain. The team specializes in regenerative medicine therapies.
Regenerative medicine stimulates your body’s natural ability to repair itself. Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine offers stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.
Stem cells are the cellular building blocks of your body. They can turn into whatever type of cell you need. When you have stem cell therapy for knee pain, your doctor injects stem cells into your knee, flooding your body with the cells it needs to repair itself.
PRP serum is made from a sample of your blood. Your platelets contain the growth factors and proteins your body uses in its regenerative processes. When your doctor separates your blood sample to create the PRP serum, the substance becomes concentrated, and it ends up with 5-10 times more growth factors than a regular blood sample.
Then, when your doctor injects the PRP serum into your knee, not only does the injection trigger your body’s healing process, but it delivers a surplus of the growth factors and nutrients your body uses to repair itself.
You can usually notice the effects of regenerative medicine within a few weeks. While it accelerates your healing process, your body still needs time to repair itself. You also might require multiple treatments to get the best results.
