How Does Regenerative Medicine Knee Pain?
A 2014 international review examined 16 documented studies on the effectiveness of one form of regenerative medicine and how it can help chronic knee pain from osteoarthritis (archives-pmr.org, 2014). The researchers in each study found that PRP injections helped most of the patients recover from their injury at a faster rate compared to those who just endured physical therapy, and they recovered at a similar rate compared to those who received a surgical procedure. The review concluded by determining that regenerative medicine “improved the functional status” in approximately 85% of the 1,543 patients who participated in each study (archives-pmr.org, 2014).
Regenerative medicine promotes cell regeneration to support damaged cartilage. The growth factors in the body’s blood cells work to repair damaged soft tissues. Although PRP injections can be slightly less expensive than stem cell injections, there is a tremendous difference in effectiveness. During a consultation, a doctor can determine which injection therapy will help you more.
Regenerative medicine therapy has successfully helped thousands of patients with chronic knee pain from tissue damage, cartilage deterioration, inflammation, and other knee injury symptoms.
