If you have chronic knee pain, possibly from Osteoarthritis or a past injury, amniotic stem cell injections may be right for you. These injections can help your body heal, cushion the knee like other injections and get your feeling better quickly.
Amniotic fluid is highly concentrated in stem cells, hyaluronic acid, proteins, cytokines and other important compounds, which are one some of the most fundamental cells in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid is the acid that is naturally occurring in the knee. Boosting your natural hyaluronic acid can help to cushion your knee so that there is less bone on bone pain.
Studies have shown that amniotic fluid is naturally regenerative and can reduce inflammation and scars. Amniotic fluid is the fluid surrounding a fetus in pregnancy. During most pregnancies, this fluid is thrown away after birth. Now, however, consenting mothers of cesarean section babies can donate this fluid because of its amazing regenerative process. It is important to note, these cells come from the amniotic sac and are not part of the embryo.
Amniotic stem cell therapy is a very safe and effective treatment. There is no risk of rejection in the patient. The fluid contains the growth factors that help to stimulate tissue growth, stem cell activity and naturally reduce inflammation. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which acts as a lubricant and promotes cartilage growth.
