Is steroid knee injections or knee replacement surgery really the only option for knee pain treatment?
Medica Pain Management therapies are minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe alternatives to relief your knee pain and to get your life back on track without surgery
When you’re suffering from knee pain or injury due to arthritis in knee, osteoarthritis, meniscal tears, traumatic ligament injuries, overuse conditions and other degenerative conditions, there are many ways to begin your relief and recovery process. The conventional line of treatment for patients suffering from these issues include, pain medication, anti-inflammatory drugs , cortisone injections , arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears or meniscal tears or ultimately total knee replacement or a combination of some.
Surgery usually causes a lot of downtime and pain post operatively with month of rehabilitation required to strengthen the muscles and ligaments around the knee and results are not guaranteed .
While pain medications and surgery have their uses, there is often another pain relief method that many have not considered: Regenerative Therapy. If you have encountered an injury to the knee meniscus, cartilage, ligaments, or have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis, or looking for safe knee replacement alternatives, you may benefit from Regenerative knee pain treatment like Stromal Vascular Fraction therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP therapy.
Regenerative Therapy is an alternative treatment option that continues to be proven successful, not only by scientist and researchers, but also by doctors who utilise this treatment for a variety of conditions, including knee pain, osteoarthritis and arthritis pain relief.
Patients suffering from pain can be at risk of depending too heavily on regular medications to relieve their pain. However, any temporary relief does not come from tackling the cause of pain. Pain medications also have undesired side effects, and some of those can be serious. Regenerative Therapy on the other hand and by means of several protocols will ultimately help initiate the self-healing cycle in the injured part of the body, the end result then is pain relief.
Regenerative Therapy utilises biologic material harvested directly from the patient’s body to help heal disease and injury. The treatment has become a game changer for accelerating healing, regenerating tissue and combating pain. It has reduced the need for prescription medications and knee surgery, proving to be a helpful tool towards managing and potentially eliminating pain in the body. Regenerative Therapy has helped untold amounts of people overcome insufferable chronic knee pain, restoring their function and mobility, and improving their quality of life.
