ACL or PCL Injury
Regenerative Medicine for Meniscal Tears
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. When the meniscus cartilage ruptures due to traumatic injuries or due to age-related wear and tear, it is referred to as a meniscal tear. A torn meniscus is usually very painful and limiting. The knee will not operate correctly with this type of injury.
Meniscal tears are of three degrees: severe, moderate, and minor. Severe meniscal tears occur when bits of ruptured meniscus enter the knee joint and affect the function of the knee, causing severe pain. Removing or repairing the meniscal tear can be done through surgery or steroid injections, but both these interventions involve risk of side effects.
Blair Regenerative Medicine 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 painful pressure.
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, that 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 tissue within the knee joint can begin to dehydrate, deteriorate, or become damaged from 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.
