Regenerative Medicine & Knee Pain. How & Why?
With more young boys and girls engaging in sports activities and adults regularly training in the gym or actively and passionately playing a sport, unfortunately, we are bound to see more of the ugly side of it. Whether an amateur or professional, you may be injured during active play or training and be forced to stop all activities for recovery and rehabilitation and in extreme cases for surgery.
Almost 400,000 people in Ireland suffer from osteoarthritis, and it is by far the most common form of knee arthritis. Post-traumatic arthritis can also develop years after an injury, such as a meniscus tear or ligament injury.
Regenerative Medicine has revolutionised the treatment approach for knee and other joint injuries.
The procedure aims to make use of one’s own self-healing powers aid in repairing, rebuilding and strengthening the damaged tissue. The end result is pain alleviation.
This is a non-surgical treatment, thus eliminating or enormously minimising risks associated with surgical procedures like infection or blood clots. This is a one-day out-patient procedure that has become a viable alternative to artificial joint replacement or knee surgery when possible. The patient can return to normal daily activities after the procedure with no painful, lengthy recovery time.
A variety of Regenerative Treatment protocols are used on a variety of joint injuries, from tears, ligament sprains to osteoarthritis, with remarkable results.
Whether young or old, athlete or not, knee Regenerative Therapy is safe, non-invasive and offers a better alternative to weeks of painful recovery.
