Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain

Maybe you’ve spent winters sailing down ski slopes, taking twists and turns with ease, and emerging victorious at the bottom of the mountain. Or perhaps you enjoyed one too many games of soccer with friends and classmates, day after day, and week after week. If knee pain makes you cringe at just the thought of heading down your favorite slopes or kicking a soccer ball, you’re not alone.

As the body gets older, tissues, ligaments, and bones lose the strength and vitality that they once had. Important cellular proteins, which aid in bone and joint health, become depleted over time. When joints are unable to repair themselves quickly, problems arise. The resulting pain, stiffness, and swelling from chronic knee conditions can be frustrating at best, and debilitating at worst.  After searching for relief, you may have discovered that traditional medicine, surgery, and physical therapy can only do so much.

If you have failed to find relief from other medical options, you may be interested in learning about the benefits that stem cell therapy HYPERLINK ""for knee pain potentially has for you. This therapy involves using the body’s own healing powers to reduce the pain, inflammation, and damage associated with many orthopedic knee conditions. A session involves extracting adult stem cells from one area of the body, such as fat deposits and healthy tissues, and mixing it with plasma-rich platelets. The mixture is then injected, with a small needle, into the site of pain or inflammation in the affected knee. The number of injections varies depending on each individual’s cause of pain and healing time. Some people find relief after just one session of stem cell therapy, while others need two or three injections.

Stem cell therapy for knee pain takes little effort, but provides many benefits: it is minimally invasive, and carries little risk of adverse reaction, due to the fact that it uses the body’s own cells. Additionally, little recovery time is needed after stem cell sessions, and most people start feeling better right away. If you are ready to try something new, learn more by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Damon Noto, or call 201-288-7246.
