Joint pain is one of the most common health issues in the U.S. that affects millions of people. The most prevalent type is knee pain, which affects almost 25% of the adult population. It is a bothersome symptom of an underlying condition, which is rarely appropriately addressed.
What Causes Knee Pain?
Although it can take a lot of time until the cartilage wears out, the pain can intensify suddenly. If that happens, simple tasks like walking around the house or going to the store can become unbearable.
Medical conditions such as arthritis or an accelerated wear and tear of the cartilage due to poor lifestyle habits usually lead to knee pain.
Among the most common conditions that cause knee pain are:
- Torn meniscus – the meniscus is the pad that absorbs the shock of the bones for every movement you make. When it is deteriorated, parts of it can enter the joint and inflame it.
- Knee degeneration – the soft tissues of the knee dehydrate and no longer act as a protective cushion for the bones. When that happens, the friction occurs between the bones, and that causes sever pain.
- Other injuries to the ligaments
Stem Cell Therapy in Naples
Stem cell therapy is a non-invasive alternative to traditional treatments and surgery. Not only does it address the symptoms, but it also helps slow down and even repair the deterioration process.
At Feel Amazing Spine and Joint Institute and Hiler Chiropractic & Neurology, we aim at getting the best regenerative results for our clients by the use of amniotic membrane allograft or Wartons Jelly Umbilical cord allograft, and additional complementary therapies. The procedure is one time injection, takes 15 to 30 minutes, causes very little pain, and takes very little recuperation and rehabilitation.
These are non-fetal cells harvested in sterile conditions from a healthy mother during C-section births. The procedure follows the guidelines approved by FDA and poses no health risk to the donor or the receiver. In fact, the rejection rate of stem cells is at or near 0%.
The main advantages of the therapy are that they can replicate and regenerate different tissues (bone, cartilage, muscle) and they can self-duplicate. This means that stem cell therapy is a way to regenerate the torn or worn out tissues, reversing the deterioration partially.
