What causes knee pain? Knee pain can be caused by a range of different acute and chronic conditions. Some of the most common include tendonitis, bursitis, torn meniscus, torn knee ligaments, damaged knee cartilage, arthritis, torn ACL or MCL, low levels of synovial fluid in the knee joint, or pain that’s referred from other areas.
When you visit our medical clinic, we will customize a pain relief treatment program for you to help get to the cause of your known pain and you get you the results you’ve been searching for.
How to Relieve Knee Pain
PRP therapy is an effective way to relieve knee pain so you can get back to doing the things you love. We use injections containing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to get to the root cause of your pain to provide long-lasting pain relief.
The first step of the process starts with you. A sample of your blood is taken right in our office and then spun in a centrifuge. This process separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The concentrated solution of platelets is then reinjected into the damaged or injured knee. Once injected the platelets rush to the site and heals boost the natural healing process we all posess.
There is little to no adverse reactions or rejection because the platelets are your own to begin with and patients report minimal discomfort and can usually carry on with their day after the visit.
Arthritis in Knee
Arthritis in the knees can make even getting out of bed challenging, which is why finding a natural treatment that works is so important. Some of the symptoms of osteoarthritis in your knees include stiffness, pain when bending your legs, lack of mobility, and difficulty standing or walking.
Choosing a natural knee pain treatment like platelet-rich plasma can help you avoid risky knee replacement surgery and pain medication that only masks the pain but never really addresses the underlying cause.
Another cause of knee pain that affects many people is runner’s knee. This condition is felt in the kneecap, and while running can be a cause, it can affect anyone that is active on a regular basis. This includes walkers, skiers, cyclists, or anyone else that puts regular stress on their knees. For a long-term solution, it’s best to avoid pain medication and focus on an all-natural treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your pain. Covering up the pain will only prolong the problem, and may give you a false sense of confidence that leads to further injury.
