Patients often ask us about their knee pain symptoms and how to get relief. There are few questions we find very helpful in performing a proper knee pain diagnosis.
Do you have:
- Knee pain when walking?
- Knee pain when bending your leg?
- Pain at night?
- Pain after running?
- Is this chronic knee pain?
- Have you had knee problems in the past or is this sudden pain?
- Is the pain severe?
The answers to these questions help us understand your symptoms and isolate the cause of your pain so that we can treat you accordingly.
Is your knee pain caused by common conditions, such as runner's knee, torn meniscus, or knee tendonitis? Our doctors treat these common conditions, as well as many others, with non-surgical procedures that utilize the bodies natural healing mechanism. These treatments can heal and regenerate underlying tissues, resulting in pain reduction.

Even if your chronic pain is the result of a long-standing injury or from natural degeneration of the joint, our non-surgical alternatives are safe, effective treatments to help you avoid or delay knee replacement surgery.
Treatment Containing Stem Cell for Knees
Your knees are designed to absorb impact, provide balance, and generate motion. If you think of it, you use your knees from the day you start crawling onward, leading to accumulated wear and tear on your joints and cartilage. You may also suffer direct damage through injuries. Injections containing stem cells and other growth are becoming more common as treatments to reduce pain and swelling in the knees to improve your activity level and comfort.
Treatments containing regenerative cells can potentially alleviate chronic pain caused by a tendon, ligament, or cartilage injury. Wharton's jelly is rich in mesenchymal stem cells and bioactive materials that decrease inflammation and accelerate regeneration and healing. We source the materials for our injections from tissue banks that safely and ethically perform umbilical allografts.
An injection containing regenerative cells is a simple treatment performed in our office, where we inject your sore knees with stem cells and growth factors to accelerate tissue or bone healing.
Knee Pain Relief
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are also a minimally invasive, non-surgical option for the treatment of a knee injury. PRP therapy promotes your body's natural healing abilities by utilizing your blood platelets to release growth factors and relieve your knee problem symptoms.
Since PRP is prepared from your blood, there is minimal risk of rejection or infection from the treatment. PRP consists of a concentrated solution of blood platelets, growth factors, and other proteins that stimulate tissue regeneration and healing of injured or damaged knee cartilage, ligaments, and other key structures to get you up and moving again.
Your sore knees and discomfort may also be alleviated by chiropractic care or laser therapy. We look at what’s causing your knee issues and use these treatments to relieve pain from misalignment, tissue inflammation, and more. These are completely non-invasive treatments for your knee problems.
Knee Pain Causes
Knee discomfort can be caused by accidental injury, overuse, or degenerative conditions like arthritis, resulting in joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. Regenerative medicine therapies promote healing and reduce symptoms for a wide range of knee problems.
