Using Non-Surgical Medicine To Heal Knee Pain
Reading this article, you will discover a way to non-surgically repair complex knee pain and injuries. Dr. Benjamin Bieber specializes in helping his patients heal knee pain non-surgically and has discovered that both PRP knee treatment and stem cell knee treatment are safe and effective alternatives to knee surgery.
It is possible to heal complex knee injuries without the use of surgery. Surgery is risky and invasive and not only has a long-term and painful rehabilitation period but also often, the results come with unintended complications. This is why either a stem cell injection or a prp injection should be tried first before surgery. Often, it is the case, where after one of these injections, only physical therapy is then needed to finish off the full recovery of the knee.
How Platelet Rich Plasma And Stem Cells Can Help Heal You
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is derived and made from the patient’s own blood. The platelets found in the blood create the platelet rich plasma that contains over 30 growth factors to stimulate tissue repair including tendons, ligaments, and muscles. PRP treatment is great at accelerating the recovery of acl, mcl, and lcl partial tears as well as arthritis, even bone on bone arthritis.
Stem Cell Therapy applies the use of stem cells to heal tissue damage. The stem cells used by Dr. Bieber are also taken from the patient’s own body and then immediately injected into the knee. Stem Cells, signaled by one’s brain, transform into the type of tissue the knee needs to repair itself. In the case of a complex knee injury, there often aren’t enough stem cells to finish the repair. Adding a boost of stem cells can potentially help the knee to finish this repair.
Both of these treaments, prp and stem cell, are used by some of the most famous athletes in the world right after an injury. They are proven to accelerate the healing process of an injury and athletes use these treatments to quickly get back to their sport and without undergoing surgery. Some examples of athletes that have used PRP treatment with success are Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriquez.
