How Stem Cell Therapy Helps with Knee Pain

Stem cell therapy has become popular for its ability to regenerate damaged tissues in the body. Utilizing this FDA-approved technique, experts have been successful in treating various conditions, providing pain relief, and restoring function for their patients. 

Stem cells are unique from other cells in the body in that they can divide to form any other type of cell. With the potential to regenerate diseased tissues, stem cell therapy can aid in the management of degenerative joint disease and knee pain. 

Stem Cell Injections to Treat Knee Pain

Cartilage in the knee provides a cushion and a gliding interface for the bones that connect in the joint. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition characterized by wear and tear of this cartilage, resulting in pain, immobility, and inflammation. 

Stem cell injections are minimally invasive, compared to surgery which requires longer recovery time and significant post-operative pain. A small volume of blood is drawn from the arm and centrifuged to concentrate the regenerative cells. These cells are then injected into the tissues in the knee or virtually any other joint in the body. 

Although there currently isn’t enough evidence to prove the direct regeneration of cartilage, studies show a decrease in knee pain following stem cell therapy of up to 75%. 

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy For Knee Pain

Stem cell injections in the knee provide the following benefits: 

  • Slow the degeneration in diseased tissues
  • Aid in tissue repair
  • Reduced joint stiffness
  • Decrease pain and inflammation
  • Less dependency on pain medications
  • Prevent or delay the need for knee surgery
