PRP & SCT For Knee Pain
Knees are tricky things and for the active individual often a prime area of complaint when it comes to injury. It’s all too common for an active individual to injure the meniscus, cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments, or have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis.For More Information
We at Personalized Regenerative Medicine look first to a complete regimen of improving wellness and fitness, reducing weight, providing physical therapy and customized and targeted application of Biologics—Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) and SCT—to aid in recovery for people suffering from knee injuries. Just reducing the load on a knee through modest weight loss, for example, can result in dramatic improvements. Surgeries like arthroscopic procedures or whole knee joint replacement are often seen as the only option but come with a set of risks and a guaranteed rehab time of months to return to even a basic fitness level. We look first to less invasive methods to get you back to doing what you love.

For years, the medical establishment has put an emphasis on reducing inflammation and employed liberal use of anti-inflammatory drugs, typically NSAID drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen and or steroids. We now know that inhibiting or slowing your body’s natural inflammatory response slows healing by preventing naturally occurring repair cells from reaching your injury. Our targeted treatments are designed to provoke an inflammatory response while increasing the number of healing cells in the injured area.
