Knee Pain

When You’re Past “Icing” Your Knee

Knee pain is an all too common health issue that may have contributing causes such as being overweight, or an improperly aligned structure that is putting too much pressure on the joint, resulting in pain. When you’re past “icing” to reduce pain, then you need to proactively seek non-invasive treatments to maintain your natural joints.

We have many non-invasive treatments that can assist in healing the knee.  Caution should be taken using procedures such as steroidal injections, which cause additional damage to the tissue in the knee.

The Most Common Causes of Knee Pain Are:

  • Knee ligament sprains and tears are very common injuries, and can occur to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and medial collateral ligament (MCL). Any of these injuries can result in severe knee pain.  These sprains and partial tears respond very well to Stem Cell therapy, PRP therapy and prolotherapy, combined with a specialized physical therapy rehabilitation.
  • Other injuries, including tears, can take place in the cartilage of the knee. Cartilage is a semi-hard (tough, but flexible) tissue that covers the end of your bones.  Semi-tears can often be treating with regenerative medicine treatments, combined with physical therapy.
  • Arthritis is a common cause of severe knee pain and disability. Arthritis is a chronic degenerative condition and may require cellular treatments such as PRP or Stem Cell therapy.  Maintaining movement and maintaining an anti-inflammatory diet may also help with pain relief.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes the tissue around the joint to become inflamed and thickened. Chronic inflammation often leads to damage and loss of cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis represents only about 10 percent to 15 percent of all arthritis cases.  Rheumatoid arthritis may be managed with regenerative and functional medicine.
