- Do you have knee pain when walking?

- Do you have pain at night?
- Do you have pain after running?
- Have you ever been diagnosed with knee arthritis?
- Is this sudden knee pain or have you had it for a longer time period?
Knee Pain Relief
Many of us in the Greater Martietta area are very active and knee injuries occur all too often. If your knee pain is holding you back, we will create a custom treatment plan to address the root of your pain. Depending on your age, one regenerative medicine treatment we offer is called platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP).
The PRP injection you will receive is derived from your own blood and consists mainly of highly concentrated platelets.
Platelets contain proteins and growth factors that speed up your body's healing process to repair and replace damaged tissues occurring as a result of knee injuries or the normal process of aging.
Regenerative Therapy Containing Stem Cells for Knees
Regenerative cell therapy, often mistakenly referred to as stem cell therapy, uses injections containing multiple growth factors as well as non-specialized stem cells to facilitate healing. Since our own stem cells lose proficiency with age, we use young cells collected from an umbilical allograft, which are called Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells (WJ-MSCs).
Stem cell therapy is a term broadly misused to describe any treatment that contains stem cells. However, this is not exactly accurate. Stem cell therapy relies on harvesting bone marrow or fat cells from the patient, then processing that tissue for stem cells and reintroducing those cells to the body.
Regenerative injections containing stem cells allow your body to incorporate and take advantage of young, active mesenchymal stem cells and numerous other growth factors to heal your damaged knee tissues. Since the cells work to repair or rejuvenate existing tissues, you will see results that last for the long-term. Regenerative medicine isn’t a temporary solution to knee injuries the way medication can be.
Knee Pain Causes
The knee is a hinge joint of two bones, the tibia and femur, held together by four knee ligaments. The knee cap covers the joint and knee cartilage, the slippery surface that allows frictionless, painless movement.
Knee problems can occur with abuse, injury, disease, or cartilage breakdown. Knee pain is associated with many injuries and diseases including:
- Torn meniscus
- Runner’s knee
- Water on the knee
- Knee tendonitis
- Back of the knee
- Pain when bending
- Knee joint pain
- Chronic pain
- MCL tear
- Sore knees
When pain begins bothering you or preventing you from carrying out daily activities, give us a call. If the knee injury persists unaddressed, your ligaments weaken, the cartilage deteriorates, and the bones will rub together, which can be excruciating. Don’t allow pain in your knee to take you away from what you enjoy. We can identify the cause of your pain and discuss the most effective pain treatment.
