Being physically active is one of the best things that you can do for your joints, for the rest of your body, including your physical health. However, being active exposes you and your body to injuries, and they often times involve the knees.
What is causing my knee pain?
Some of the most common problems that our doctors at American Pain and Wellness typically see are sprained ligaments, meniscus tears, tendinitis, and runner’s knee. If you happen to have an old knee injury that wasn’t properly cared for and treated, it may flare up now and then or hurt you consistently. Other reasons may include:
- Dislocated kneecap
- IT (Iliotibial) band syndrome
- Meniscal tear
- Osgood-Schlatter disease
- Patellar tendinitis
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
Why should I go to American Pain and Wellness for knee pain treatment?
At American Pain and Wellness, our pain doctors and specialists work collaboratively to harness the power of the human body. We do this by implementing evolving regenerative medicine techniques that are easy to administer by injection. Regenerative medicine has been proven to help many people significantly reduce their pain and inflammation in their joints as well as allowing them to avoid surgery in most cases.
What type of regenerative medicine techniques are used at American Pain and Wellness?
Platelet-rich plasma is a unique substance that is derived from human blood that contains a high level of platelets. Platelets are vital for repairing damaged tissue and stimulating the body’s natural healing response and process. After discussing the treatment options with the patient, PRP injections may be administered to help stimulate the body to heal injured tendons, ligaments, and even cartilage. Keep in mind that some patients may require repeated administration of these injections in order to achieve the optimal results. This will vary from patient to patient and also depend on the area that needs to be treated, along with the severity of the problem.
