Where do you get the stem cells for this therapy?
We collect stem cells from your body! You have a secret supply of stem cells right now inside of you. These powerful cells are located just inside your hip bone and in your bone marrow and they are waiting to be dispatched to help heal your body when it detects an injury. At our pain management center, we collect these stems cells and process them into an injection. We then apply it to your knee in areas our doctors think can do the most good. This injection will then start to help relieve some of your chronic knee pain symptoms and promote your body to heal itself.
How does PRP Therapy work?
PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma. This powerful healing factor helps repair damaged parts of your body when you are injured, much like stem cell therapy does. However, this healing factor resides in your blood. Instead of extracting stem cells from your bone marrow or hip, we take a draw of blood and pull out the PRP. We then turn it into an injection and inject it into your knee to promote healing. PRP Therapy is also used sometimes for cosmetic purposes as the healing factors of PRP have been found to refresh someone’s youthful appearance. Instead of making your face look young again, we can restore the youthfulness of your knee and help it heal faster, reducing chronic pain.
What should I expect from stem cell therapy or PRP therapy?
Both procedures help reduce the symptoms of inflammation and help promote your body’s healing processes. Ideally, we want to reduce the inflammation in the area of your knee and promote the growth of new blood vessels. These two effects of stem cell therapy and PRP therapy generally help with chronic pain in the knee. PRP Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy can be the key to improving and healing your knee when things like physical therapy and medication have not worked.
Which therapy is best for my chronic knee pain?
Our doctor will meet with you one on one to review your symptoms and medical history. The doctor will work with you to determine if stem cell treatment or PRP Therapy is right for you. In some cases, neither, or a combination of both may be the right path for you. We will not suggest either treatment if we do not think it will benefit you. Our providers will review with you all of the benefits and risks of both procedures to help you make the best decision for your chronic pain.
