Knee Pain

What is causing my knee pain?

Knee pain affects many men and women; it is often the result of an injury, but knee pain can also arise from osteoarthritis or degenerative joint conditions. Some of the most common conditions that cause ongoing knee pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • ACL tears
  • Meniscus tears
  • Tendon tears
  • Patellar tendonitis 
  • Knee bursitis 
  • Fractures 

Participating in exercise that involves a lot of jumping, such as basketball, increases your risk for knee injuries. And if you’re overweight or obese, you also have an increased risk for knee problems.

Which knee symptoms can regenerative medicine address?

The highly skilled team at Carolina Regenerative Medicine specializes in highly effective, minimally invasive regenerative medicine treatments. Regenerative injection therapy can address most knee symptoms, including:

  • Swelling and stiffness
  • Weakness or instability
  • Popping or crunching noises
  • Limited range of motion

For any of these symptoms, see the orthopedists at New Jersey Regenerative Institute for a definitive diagnosis.

How does regenerative medicine work?

There are two basic types of regenerative medicine available at Carolina Regenerative Medicine: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, and stem cell therapy.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy

PRP therapy involves drawing some of your blood and processing it in a centrifuge to isolate blood platelets, which contain powerful healing properties. This plasma serum is then injected into your knee where it enhances your body’s natural process of cellular repair.

Stem cell therapy

Adult stem cells are an essential part of natural cellular renewal. They have a unique ability to self-replicate and differentiate into many different types of tissue. 

Stem cells are typically harvested from adipose (fat) tissue or bone marrow in your hip, processed, and reinjected into your knee. Stem cell therapy promotes the regrowth of new connective tissue and other damaged structures.

Following your regenerative medicine treatment, healing occurs gradually as the concentrated growth factors stimulate cellular renewal, increase circulation, and reduce inflammation. In a few months, your knee can be free from pain with restored mobility and functionality.

Don’t let knee pain prevent you from participating in the activities you enjoy. For a solution to knee pain without surgery or ongoing pain medication, call Carolina Regenerative Medicine in Goldsboro, North Carolina, to schedule an evaluation or make an appointment online today.
