What Causes Knee Pain and Stiffness?
Knee pain can have many causes, but the majority of knee pain comes from direct injuries and arthritis. On average, one out of ten people will complain of knee problems during their lifetime. Knees are more susceptible to injury than any other body part. This is because of the weight that is constantly put on the knee as well as impacts from activities such as walking, running or climbing stairs. Even these every day activities can cause damage to the knee over time.
How is knee pain typically treated?
Typically, when a knee injury occurs doctors prescribe rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy to attempt to repair the knee. If this treatment does not fix the condition, surgery is traditionally the next option.
How can Renew Regenerative Medicine help?
Regenerative and restorative therapies are now available for knee pain and do not involve surgery. The medical team at Renew Regenerative Medicine uses Regenerative Cell Therapy injections to treat knee injuries. Regenerative Cell Therapy allows patients to use regenerative cells and growth factors to help repair and regenerate damaged cells and tissues in their knee. Stem Cell Therapy is the most advanced and, arguably, most effective regenerative therapy — stem cells can heal and restore damaged joints and have the ability to regenerate cells. Stem cells can be used to stimulate a regenerative healing process in the knee and in this way can be used to provide many patients powerful, long-lasting relief.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy contains a concentration of many different growth factors that reduce inflammation and promote the body’s healing capabilities. Instead of a long path to recovery with a risk of complications, PRP therapy allows for treatment of the knee with local injections. PRP presents patients with a long-lasting treatment option by using the body’s natural healing process. PRP research has shown that it can decrease pain and increase functioning in patients suffering from knee pain or arthritis, as well as accelerate healing after an injury or a surgery is performed.
