Suffering from knee pain can make doing the things you love or even simply getting around the house a challenge. Our medical clinic offers regenerative medicine to help you regain mobility and live pain-free. We have a whole-body philosophy when it comes to healing. Our integrative therapies provide you with pain relief solutions that address your specific issues for effective treatment.
Knee Pain Relief
There's no reason that you should have to live with sore knees. Whether you are suffering from stiffness, knee pain when bending, or other severe knee pain, we can assess your issues and come up with a treatment plan that will get you moving.
Knee pain can become debilitating if left untreated. We use a combination of treatments to offer knee pain relief including regenerative cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma injections, and chiropractic care. We understand that everyone’s pain is different, so we design our treatment plans to reflect these differences.
We never aim to mask pain with medication, but instead, we use healing treatments that will repair damaged bone, cartilage, tendon, or other tissues so that you’re able to regain the use of your knees. We use all-natural pain relief like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to target injuries. PRP is synthesized from your blood and has the growth factors and proteins that your body needs for healing. Your body regularly sends these healers to treat injuries, but the process can be slow. By injecting a high concentration of them into your body where and when you need them most, you can heal sooner.
Chiropractic care may also be helpful because disorders affecting your spine also affect your other joints. Your knees hold much of your body weight, and if your body’s systems are shifted, compressed, or otherwise misaligned, your knees feel that pain too. Our chiropractor adjusts your spinal vertebrae to reset them and restore balance to your body for instant pain relief.
Treatments using Stem Cells for Knees
In many cases, the knee pain you’re experiencing is caused when your body is no longer effective in repairing and renewing damaged cells and tissue. So, introducing healthy cells to take over the repairs is necessary. Our knee pain strategy focuses on repairing and reversing damage, using regenerative medicine techniques.
Using state-of-the-art treatments using stem cells, we trigger your body’s natural healing process. The healthy stem cells we use have been collected from umbilical allografts. These mesenchymal stem cells are safely extracted from Wharton’s jelly inside the umbilical cord. Through injections, you receive the regenerative properties required for natural healing, such as hyaluronic acid and many growth factors. This minimally invasive treatment provides positive, long-term outcomes with no downtime required.
Knee Pain Causes
Knees are complicated joints with many parts that can be injured or degenerate over time. Our treatments work to repair the ligaments, tendons, bursae, cartilage, and more that are involved in a functioning knee. Some common knee pain issues include:
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
- Torn meniscus
- Knee bursitis
- Patellar tendonitis
- Runner’s knee
- Water on the knee
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Septic arthritis
- Gout or pseudogout
- Loose bone or cartilage floating in the joint space
- Iliotibial band syndrome
- Dislocated kneecap
You can also experience knee pain if you compensate for pain or malfunction in your hips or feet. This can lead to pain due to uneven weight distribution. We willcheck your gait and look at all pain or range of motion issues that might be contributing to your pain. This is part of our whole-body approach to health.
