Knee Pain Relief
Knee joint pain or sore knees can affect people of all age ranges and can be the caused by a variety of sources. Most often, our chiropractor will use x-rays and other diagnostic techniques to determine the root your knee pain symptoms. There are many causes of your pain that include:
- Strains and sprains (the muscles and tendons and ligaments become strained from overuse)
- Tendonitis (small tears to the tendons in the knee that are repeated over time and cause chronic inflammation)
- Runners knee (frequently associated with running and jumping and often more common when the body is unbalanced)
- Dislocated knee (often due to a hard impact from sports or car accident the knee joint is displaced or out of its proper position.)
Once a proper diagnosis has been established, the doctor will use a variety of treatments to get you the fastest most efficient pain relief possible. Not only will chiropractic care be a part of your regime but regenerative therapies such as PRP (platelet rich plasma) injection and stem cell therapies may be used. These ground-breaking procedures ensure relief to the injured area at a faster rate while restoring your body to a healthier level so future pain and injury are prevented.
Stem Cell Therapy for Knees
Stem cells for knees are very effective because stem cells have the ability to develop into the exact kind of cell the body needs in order to heal and rebuild itself. Once the new, healthier stem cells are introduced into the injured area, inflammation is reduced drastically and the regeneration can begin stopping further advancement of arthritis, osteoarthritis, cartilage damage etc.
Mesenchymal stem cells (from umbilical cord tissue) are the most effective cells available and can offer sustained knee pain relief through tissue regeneration. Your body has the ability to use these cells to repair torn knee cartilage, joint damage, and strained ligaments.
Other Regenerative therapy options may be used as well, such as PRP injections (Platelet rich plasma) which uses the platelets in your own blood to regenerate tissue and cartilage. PRP is often used in conjunction with stem cell therapy for most effective results.
Using a variety of regenerative medicine alongside chiropractic care, our team at St. Petersburg Chiropractic Injury and Rehab is committed to getting you the fastest most effective treatment for your knee pain and restore your mobility.
