Disclaimer: Results and claims are not typical or meant to represent your results. Risks exist for any interventional procedures including all regenerative medicine treatments which include prolotherapy, A2M, bone marrow, growth factor injections, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Long-term side effects of regenerative medicine are unknown and short-term problems have emerged. Complications are uncommon but these do include the possibility of infection, bleeding, no help from the procedure, worsening pain, and remotely stroke and death.
Knee pain is the one of most common problems we treat, whether it’s from an acute injury, or from osteoarthritis due to aging and the degenerative process. Surgery is often presented as the only option for patients by their doctors, even when some studies suggest that many of these surgeries may only be minimally effective. In some cases, physical therapy alone may produce similar outcomes when compared with common surgeries.
While there are times when surgery is required, regenerative treatments may offer a non-surgical alternative for many patients with conditions ranging from tendon and ligament tears, arthritis, meniscus tears, knee instability, patellar pain, overuse injuries, and other conditions that cause knee pain.
Regenerative treatments may help some patients reduce the risks and lengthy recovery periods associated with invasive surgeries. And patients typically benefit from less downtime and are encouraged to return to activity.
Common causes of knee pain are a torn meniscus or ACL tear, repetitive stress, or arthritis. Athletes, elderly people, and obese individuals are particularly susceptible to knee-related injuries.
