Knee pain is a common occurrence and most people will experience some sort of knee pain at one point in their lives. Chronic knee pain can make it difficult to stay active and end up affecting your daily life. Injuries from sports can be the cause of knee pain, especially for muscle strains, tendinitis or damage to ligaments or cartilage. For some, Osteoarthritis is the reason for knee pain and if not treated can continue to degenerate and sometimes require surgery. Stem cell therapy is a great alternative to surgery and can provide pain relief and help to reduce swelling and inflammation.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (“PRP”) injections
PRP injections help to accelerate your own body’s natural healing process. It does this by activating the stem cells and platelets in an injury site. Your body is then able to get back to it’s normal self without a lot of painful rehab or a long down time. When we do PRP injections in our office we draw blood from the patient which gets spun down in a centrifuge. The injection only takes from 1-2 hours to complete. This process is great for people suffering with ligament or tendon tears, joint weakness, muscle strains or fibrosis and arthritis and tendinitis.
Amniotic Stem Cell Injections
Our amniotic injections have a high concentration of stem cells, proteins, cytokines and other important compounds. This naturally regenerative injection can help to reduce inflammation and scars. Amniotic stem cells have no risk of rejection in the patient and are an effective and safe treatment option. The fluid contains the growth factors that help to stimulate tissue growth and naturally reduce inflammation. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which acts as a lubricant and promotes cartilage growth. This treatment is great for those suffering with Osteoarthritis, soft tissue injuries, Achilles tears, tendon or ligament tears, sacroiliac pain, any joint related pain, tennis or golfer’s elbow, rotator cuff injuries, hip and low back pain.
