STEM CELL THERAPIES FOR KNEES

by Phillips Clinic on 04/28/19

JOINT PAIN
A high percentage of Americans suffer from chronic pain arising within their joints-- knees, hips, and shoulders and back. According to the Health Daily New, approximately 46 million US adults experience this kind of pain at any given point in their lives, and up to one-third of are limited in their daily activities as a result. Joint stress, strain and injuries increase with age.

What began decades ago as experimental treatments for  injured athletes, regenerative therapies such as PRP and Stem Cell, have proven to help to repair tissue/bone damage and relieve pain in many cases, without surgery.
KNEE CONDITIONS 
REGENERATIVE THERAPIES CAN HELP
Cartilage Tears
The meniscus is a very important “shock absorber” of the knee. It is wedge shaped and made up of fibrocartilage. 
Most of our body weight  is       distributed through the meniscus as we walk, run, and jump.
The meniscus protects the cartilage of the joint from wearing out 
The meniscus adds to the stability of the knee joint. 
The meniscus helps nourish the joint cartilage that covers the bones in the joint.

Ligament Injuries
A ligament injury to the knee causes damage to one of the major supporting ligaments. 
A minor injury can be simple stretching of the ligament resulting in slight inflammation.
A severe injury can be a rupture of the knee. 
The ligaments are essential to correct knee function. The ligaments stabilize the knee preventing abnormal and prevent abnormal movement.

Osteoarthritis
The bones of the knee joint like all other joints in the body are covered by hyaline cartilage. Hyaline Cartilage provides smooth surfaces, enabling tissues to move/slide easily over each other, allowing smooth movements

of the joints. It is also provides flexibility and support. 

When this cartilage gets damaged, by trauma, infection, or just long-term wear and tear, it results in osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is simply the result of the cartilage surface wearing out
