Knees help us walk, run, dance, jump, and even drive a car. Over time, the tissue and joints in our knees weaken, whether it’s from exertion, repetitive motion, age, injury, or illness. And along with this weakness and deterioration comes pain. Pain that limits your mobility and stops you from doing the things you love to do. Many people turn to medication or surgery to fix the pain, but these methods don’t treat the root cause of their pain. And so it eventually returns. In this post, we teach you how to treat and eliminate knee pain naturally, so you can enjoy long-term relief and a higher quality of life.
Causes of Knee Pain
You put pressure on your knees with every step you take, so there are many potential causes for chronic or acute severe knee pain. Some of the most common ones we see include:
- Torn meniscus
- Runner’s knee
- Knee tendinitis
- Damaged knee cartilage
- ACL and MCL injuries
- Lack of synovial fluid in the knee joint
- Referred pain from other areas
Natural treatment options
Depending on the origin of your pain, obviously your treatment with differ. If your knee pain originates from a misaligned joint or other misalignments in the body, then chiropractic care offers positive results. For knee pain stemming from a degenerative condition, damaged cartilage, torn MCL or ACL, or lack of synovial fluid in the joint, however, we recommend regenerative medicine.
Many doctors recommend either drugs, surgery, or regenerative medicine as potential treatment options for more serious cases of knee pain. At our clinic, we prefer the third option. But our treatment is a bit different from “traditional” stem cell therapy.
How it works
The human body has trillions of tiny cells that make up everything from your skeletal system to the heart beating in your chest. When these cells become damaged, they try to heal themselves. Unfortunately, some damage is irreversible, and with age, our cells become less able to regenerate and heal themselves. So, we inject young healthy stem cells from donated umbilical cords into your knee to repair the damaged cells and tissue.
For those suffering from severe knee pain, the damage to your knee cartilage and surrounding muscle tissue is often the cause. By encouraging the cells in your knee to begin healing themselves, your body can overcome knee pain symptoms naturally.
A natural treatment that works
When a part of your body hurts, it is letting you know something is wrong. Too often, we view pain as the problem and not as a symptom of the problem. As a result, doctors prescribe painkillers, and a vicious cycle begins that doesn’t have an end. Not to mention, treating knee pain with medication can increase the likelihood of causing even more damage, because you won’t know when to take it easy.
For patients with chronic knee pain, cell therapy offers a way to treat your condition naturally, with long-term relief. Because the therapy is all-natural and non-surgical, patients have a short recovery time and can return to work and family life quickly.
