Chronic Knee Pain: Is Regenerative Medicine the Answer?
Knee pain is a funny thing. Once it pops up, it never seems to go away completely.
Sure, you can stretch, rest, and go through physical therapy, but throw down your foot too hard on a jog through Hernando Beach and the pain comes right back.
Knee injuries are incredibly common: About 33% of men and nearly 60% of women over the age of 50 suffer from it. That’s why over 600 thousand people in the United States undergo full knee replacement surgery each year.
Before subjecting yourself to invasive surgery with a lengthy recovery time, consider stem cell therapy to help your body heal naturally.
What are Your Options for Treating Chronic Knee Pain?
Your knees contain some of the most complex joints in your entire body. They rely on several tendons and ligaments to connect your femur to your tibia and keep everything stable.
Unfortunately, as you age, your body loses much of its cartilage flexibility. Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body and responsible for keeping your joints healthy. Over time, your body can’t produce collagen as quickly as it loses it.
The loss of soft tissue and elasticity to age puts you at risk for a wide range of knee injuries like tendonitis, tears, and arthritis. That’s why knee injuries are so difficult to treat.
Chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy are useful treatments for reducing stiffness and improving age-related loss of motion, but stem cells show significant promise for improving knee health.
