Using Stem Cell Therapy as an Effective Knee Pain Treatment

Written By ChiroConcepts of McKinney on March 12, 2018

You may have already stumbled across stem cell therapy as an innovative and exciting way of treating a variety of conditions, including multiple sclerosis and autism.

But did you know one of its most popular uses is as an effective, drug-free, and quick knee pain treatment? 

In recent years, regenerative medicine has been explored for a variety of conditions and has been found to be particularly successful when treating knee pain, especially when caused by arthritis. Where doctors have previously said that a patient’s tissues are “irreparable,” stem cell therapy is providing new hope and the ability to live the life they want. 

How Does This Knee Pain Treatment Work? 

Due to stem cells having the ability to transform themselves into a variety of different cells, including tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, they play a fundamental role in the success of regenerative medicine. 

Stem cells can be taken from a number of different places, including your own bone marrow and fat tissue, but an increasing number of clinics are opting for stem cells from amniotic fluid (this is the protective sac that surrounds a baby, but is often discarded during cesareans). It offers a higher concentration of stem cells, which is what makes it so popular. 

Understandably, there are some people who, on ethical grounds, are against amniotic stem cell injections. But many feel this type of stem cell therapy offers people a new lease on life. 

What Are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy enables your body to use a natural process to heal and regenerate itself. Furthermore, these injections also boast anti-inflammatory properties, which are a welcome relief when you’re suffering from knee pain. They also stimulate the growth of new cartilage and contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates the cartilage in your knee to provide better ease of movement. 

Therefore, compared to some traditional treatments, stem cell therapy offers you so much more. It doesn’t just alleviate your symptoms and reduce the inflammation in your knee, but also restores tissue that’s wasted away, thus preventing more problems from arising in the future. 

What’s even more exciting is the fact that this type of knee pain treatment can be carried out in your chiropractic clinic in McKinney. There’s no need for an overnight stay in the hospital and you won’t have to undergo an extensive recovery period.
