The latest advancements in stem cell therapy have shown that stem cell injections for the knees can help alleviate the symptoms of knee injuries. This non-invasive approach can help the knees to regenerate cartilage and reduce inflammation when stem cell injections are used as a complementary treatment.
Defining Knee Injuries
Knee injuries develop due to aging, overuse, repetitive movements, and sports injuries. These injuries include tearing ligaments and tendons, tears in the meniscus, bursitis, tendonitis, runner’s knee, and osteoarthritis.
The symptoms are painful and include swelling, inflammation, bruising, and limited mobility. While these injuries tend to be acute, the more severe knee injuries often require surgery and a healing period of four to six weeks plus physical therapy. Treating knee injuries and common required treatments are costly. Many patients put off seeing a doctor until the injury affects their everyday routine and the pain is unbearable.
Osteoarthritis is a chronic condition meaning it lasts more than one year and, in some people, a lifetime. Chronic conditions greatly affect your activities of daily living and impact your life quality.
46% of the adult population suffers from osteoarthritis. It is the prime cause of knee pain and limited mobility in adults over 40. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage in your knees wears down, causing the bones to rub together (bone on bone). The friction caused by the bone rubbing causes inflammation and stiffness.
The condition progresses over time as you age and is caused by knee injuries in your past, being overweight, stress on the knees from sports and work, joints and bones that are crooked, and heredity.
Current treatments for osteoarthritis and other knee injuries are pain medicine such as narcotics, steroids, and NSAIDS (Motrin, Naproxen, Celecoxib, and Indomethacin). Physical therapy, knee braces, and orthotics (splints and braces.) As joint pain and decreased mobility increase, knee replacement becomes the only option. Knee surgery is invasive, expensive, puts the patient at risk for infections, and requires a six-week healing period as minimum and physical therapy.
Stem cell injections for the knees are an effective complementary treatment to your current knee treatment regimen.
Using Stem Cell Injections for Knee Injuries
A stem cell has the ability to develop into a mature cell when placed in a specific body tissue. Their ability to reproduce and self-renew allows them to replace damaged cells and regenerate the area. In this case, the knee’s cartilage. The most recent studies have shown that stem cell injections for the knees could slow down tissue damage, regenerate, and repair knee tissue.
Stem cell therapy uses cells harvested from different sources and expanded so they can be used in our bodies.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells
At StemLife Clinic, we use umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells. These multipotent cells are self-renewable and can be incorporated into any specialized cell type. Once cells differentiate into bone, muscle, and cartilage, they can regulate the immune system, multiply in number, decrease inflammation, and start the regeneration process.
Mesenchymal stem cells are a complementary treatment for knee injuries and osteoarthritis, and they slow the aging process of the knee joint and surrounding tissues.
Stem cells are not invasive like surgery or addictive like pain meds. In some patients, stem cell therapy has stopped the progression of osteoarthritis. Is stem cell therapy a cure for Osteoarthritis of knee injuries?
No, it is not a cure. It works with your current treatment to speed up the healing and alleviate the symptoms of the knee condition, also we can delay the need of surgery in your knees.
