Stop Suffering from Knee Pain!
Knee pain is nothing to ignore. There are so many different potential sources for your knee pain, so it is important to get medical help to find out the cause. Many of us have at least one of the risk factors for knee pain, including excess weight, lack of strength or flexibility, certain sports or a previous knee injury.
Any of these conditions can lead to tendonitis, a torn meniscus or even a fracture of the patella or kneecap. In addition to injuries, other body mechanics can also lead to knee pain. If you have hip or foot pain, a floating piece of cartilage or bone (loose bodies) or iliotibial band syndrome, you probably have knee pain.
If that is not enough, there are several disease conditions that can also lead to knee pain, including gout, infections, bursitis and several types of arthritis.
In other words, if you are human and upright, there is a very real chance you will experience knee pain at some point. Often, that pain becomes chronic and can alter your lifestyle in negative ways.
Cutting-Edge Treatment to Relieve Chronic Knee Pain
To determine the proper treatment for your knee pain, diagnostic testing will most likely be necessary. These tests may include lab work, x-rays, or possibly an MRI or CT scan. Once the doctor determines the proper diagnosis, treatment can begin.
Knee pain is often treated with medications, including anti-inflammatories, pain medication and steroid injections. Many times, these treatments offer only temporary or partial relief from the pain. They can also produce unpleasant side effects the patient must deal with, in addition to the chronic pain.
At the Advanced Healing Institute, we offer another type of injection that can bring true healing and relief from your knee pain. Platelet-rich plasma, known as PRP, injections are a revolutionary development in treating knee pain.
PRP injections are made from platelet-rich plasma. Platelets, a component of our blood, possess clotting factors, as well as growth and healing properties. At the Advanced Healing Institute, we use centrifugal force to spin a sample of a patient’s blood fast enough to remove the platelets from the other cells in the blood. We can then inject the platelet-rich plasma precisely into the area of the knee causing the pain. We use ultrasound technology to perfectly guide the PRP into the most beneficial spot for ultimate healing.
PRP is fast and easy. The treatment only takes a few minutes and is done right in the clinic. There is no hospital stay needed for an extended recovery time. It is non-invasive and virtually risk-free. Every PRP treatment is procured from the individual’s own blood, so allergies and other complications do not interfere. The clinical environment is sterile, thus eliminating the worry of infection. Best of all, most patients get relief from a single treatment.
