Knee Pain Treatment with Regenerative Cellular Therapy

Written By Woywood Integrated Medicine on July 23, 2021

Knee Pain TreatmentThe knee joint is one that’s heavily susceptible to injuries for a few reasons. The knee is a hinge joint with a limited range of motion that’s almost constantly under pressure from the heavy load of the body’s weight. The joint is supported by soft tissues like ligaments, muscles, tendons, and cartilage, which may all endure damage due to sudden traumatic injuries, torque from repeated movements in the knee, and pressure from excess body weight.

If you’ve sustained a knee injury, you may be concerned that surgery is the only option to help you regain full mobility and relieve pain in the knee. However, Woywood Integrated Health offers an alternative therapy utilizing the latest non-surgical technology available. Regenerative cell therapy can help your body heal damaged tissues naturally, sparing you from painful surgery that may come with a long recovery period. 

Common Injuries of the Knee

Knee injuries affect individuals of all ages. They’re common among athletes participating in sports involving jumping, running, and pivoting, such as basketball and football. Knee injuries are also likely for individuals in certain physically demanding occupations, like construction and farming. Here is a quick look at some of the most common knee injuries that may lead you to explore knee pain treatment with a chiropractor. 

  • ACL injuries – The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is one of four ligaments in the knee connecting the shinbone to the thighbone. It is susceptible to overstrain and tearing, often caused by suddenly changing direction while running. 
  • Torn meniscus – The meniscus is a shock absorber in the knee. This formation of cartilage is what serves as padding for the ends of the bones in the knee joint, and it may become torn during a variety of physical activities.  
  • Osteoarthritis of the knee – Osteoarthritis is often called wear-and-tear arthritis, and it is frequently seen in the knees. This condition leads to the deterioration of cartilage, which helps to pad and lubricate the knee joint. 
  • Patellar tendinitis – Tendinitis is an overuse injury that causes inflammation in the tendons that attach the muscles to the bones. Patellar tendinitis is often the result of repeated high-impact activities like jumping and running. 

Knee Pain Treatment with Regenerative Cellular Therapy 

Knee injuries that underlie your knee pain will most likely affect connective tissues that do not self-repair as easily as the muscle tissue. These tendons, ligaments, and cartilage do not receive as many restorative cells and nutrients from the bloodstream, so they are slow to heal naturally. Regenerative cellular therapy infuses damaged tissues with those beneficial cells and nutrients to help them repair through the body’s own healing process.
