What causes knee pain? The cause of knee pain can range from acute injuries suffered in accidents or playing sports to degenerative conditions such as bursitis, tendonitis, or arthritis. Some common knee injuries include a torn meniscus, damaged ligaments, torn cartilage or sprains. In some cases, knee pain may be caused by damage in other areas of the body.
At our medical clinic, the goal is to treat the root cause of your pain without drugs or surgery, so you can function better, move better and feel better to improve your quality of life. Give us a call today to schedule a free consultation.
How to Relieve Knee Pain?
Our doctors have helped many of our patients find knee pain relief with regenerative medicine treatments that target the underlying cause of the pain and not just the symptoms. We use regenerative cells that have been collected from the Wharton’s jelly of donated umbilical cord tissue after a C-section birth. The donors are prescreened and neither the mother nor baby is harmed during the collection process.
At Regain Functional Medicine, we prefer these healing, youthful cells over other methods of treatment for many reasons, including:
- They are young and potent, filled with healing properties
- They get to work quickly repairing and regenerating your damaged knee tissue
- They haven’t developed an immune system yet, so there is little to no risk of rejection
Some of the healing compounds that are present in the regenerative tissue we collect include:
- Growth factors
- Extracellular matrix
- And more
We also offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which works as an internal messenger between your body’s natural healing cells. PRP is made using a sample of your own blood. After it is spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the platelets, the rich, golden solution is injected into your sore knees to facilitate the healing process.
Arthritis In Knee
Arthritis is a cause of knee pain symptoms that affects a number of people. Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal cells can have a positive impact on arthritic joints. Some of the common symptoms of arthritis in the knees include pain while walking or bending, general stiffness, and poor mobility or range of motion. Our natural treatments, such as injections with regenerative cells, will target the root cause of your pain and provide you with the relief you deserve.
Runner’s knee is another common complaint that affects the kneecap. While running is typically the cause of this condition, you can still get it even if you don’t run regularly. Walkers, cyclists, skiers, and anyone else who is active can suffer from runner’s knee. Our all-natural treatments can help you avoid pain medication and surgery and get back doing the activities you love.
