Stem Cell Therapy for knee arthritis and knee pain is now being offered in Gilbert, AZ. Osteoarthritis of the knee is the most common type of knee pain in older adults and can lead to disability, loss of function and chronic knee pain. Many adults will experience this type of pain to varying degrees at some point in their lifetime. Once viewed as simple “wear and tear” osteoarthritis is now better understood as a inflammatory and degenerative disorder of the joint with loss of cartilage and can lead to bone erosion. The symptoms of this condition are
- Joint Pain
- Exercise Intolerance
- Decreased range of motion
- Surrounding muscle weakness / pain
Osteoarthritis of the knee can be diagnosed through case history combined with imaging studies, usually x-ray or MRI for complex presentations. Once diagnosed, patients will begin conservative therapy such as weight loss to decrease stress on the joint, exercise, physical therapy, and acetaminophen for pain relief. If unresponsive, patients will then be given NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as Ibuprofen. For additional relief, steroid injections such as cortisone or various forms of hyaluronic acid lubricants will be injected into the joint. If the pain continues past these therapies surgical options such as Arthroscopy and eventually Arthroplasty (knee replacement) will follow.
Stem Cell Therapy options available in Gilbert, AZ.
The conventional care options usually provide superficial relief at best without addressing the underlying pathology of degeneration of the knee joint. You want to find a Physician or be referred to one, that has been trained to always examine the pathophysiology of conditions and address them initially before palliative and temporary pain relief options are explored. This can be done with nutrition, supplementation and Stem Cell injections to treat knee pain and arthritis. This approach provides the body with the necessary nutrients it needs for joint health and can regenerate connective tissue through the Stem Cell Therapy injections. The restoration of the cartilage inside the joint can provide lubrication and cushioning of the joint. The Stem Cell treatment also involves strengthening the surrounding structures of the joint such as the MCL, LCL, ACL, PCL, patellar ligament, transverse ligament, meniscus, IT band, and quadriceps tendon.
