Stem Cell Therapy for Knees Explained

The knee is the biggest joint in the human body. It’s a complicated construction of various bones, muscles, cartilage and ligaments that plays an essential role in keeping us mobile.

Unfortunately, there are plenty of ways in which the knee can lose optimal function and cause pain. It’s estimated that up to 15 per cent of men and as many as 20 per cent of women suffer some form of knee pain.

Many people are able to put their discomfort down to the wear and tear that is inevitable as we age. For many others, however, the problems become so severe that some form of intervention is required.

As well as the damage that can be caused over time to the various parts of the knee, it is a part of the body that is susceptible to arthritis too.

Knee treatment with stem cells may be the answer for many people suffering from knee pain. Let’s look at the ways in which this treatment might help – and the pros and cons of stem cell therapy for knees.

Knee Treatment With Stem Cells

There can be many reasons for your knees to develop problems and cause you pain. However, knee treatment with stem cells has the potential to support healing thanks to the unique properties of stem cells.

Stem cells are undifferentiated, or blank cells. When applied to a damaged area, they can signal the body to decrease inflammation and repair and regenerate the affected tissue.

At the Stemwell Clinic, we believe the most potent source of stem cells is the umbilical cord tissue collected from healthy, full-term mothers.

Once harvested, stem cells can be injected directly into the knee so that they can signal your cells to promote healing and to decrease inflammation. They can also be introduced to the body intravenously.

When it comes to the pros and cons of stem cell therapy for knees, there are some clear arguments in favor. Knee treatment with stem cells is less invasive than conventional surgery, which can involve a long recuperation time.

However, traditional treatments may be a viable option if your knee problem is in a specific area that can be targeted through keyhole surgery.

Knee treatment with stem cells has the potential to regenerate healthy tissue, reduce inflammation, and generally improve the quality of life of a person suffering with knee pain.
