ACL or PCL Injury
Regenerative Medicine for Meniscus Tear
When the meniscus cartilage ruptures due to traumatic injuries or due to age-related wear and tear it is referred to as meniscus tear. Meniscus tear is usually very painful and limiting. The knee will not operate correctly with this type of injury. The meniscus is located at the knee joint. It is a rubbery piece of cartilage that acts as the body’s shock absorber and also acts as a pad to stabilize and protect the knee.
Meniscus tear are of three degrees: severe, moderate and minor. Severe meniscus is when bits of ruptured meniscus enter the knee joint and affects the function of the knee causing a lot of pain. But for minor and moderate meniscus tears, the pain usually disappears after conventional treatment or a few weeks of rest. Those suffering from meniscus tear are increasingly becoming aware of the implications of removing the meniscus though surgical operation, they also prefer not to risk the side effects that come with steroid injections.
Beaver County Regenerative Wellness Centers offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery and steroid injections for this problem. We also treat the underlying issues that cause the pain with our advanced form of Regenerative Cellular Therapy. By using this regenerative approach, the joint may be able to repair itself and regain its function of holding the knee bones in place, thus relieving pressure on other components such as the particular cartilage and meniscus.
Regenerative Medicine for Knee Degeneration
Degeneration of the joints can occur in any of the joints in the body, especially those that experience lots of wear and tear. The knees are used in so many daily motions, feeling pain with each movement is debilitating. Joint degeneration generally develops over time and can suddenly worsen and become more severe and disabling. Cartilage or other soft tissues within the knee joint can begin to dehydrate, deteriorate, or become damaged from some type of injury. These tissues provide a protective cushion between the bones for smooth movement. Once the tissue starts to wear down, or degenerate, friction within the joint can lead to inflammation, swelling, bone spurs, and other painful symptoms. Recent developments in Regenerative Medicine make it possible to treat degenerative joint conditions naturally, without the need for medications, steroids, or surgery. Regenerative Cellular Therapy uses stem cells to target the damaged and deteriorating tissues. Concentrated amounts of these cells are injected into the affected area, and immediately reduce inflammation and reverse damage and deterioration of tissue.
