Knee Pain Stem Cell Therapy
The human body has a natural supply of stem cells that can renew themselves and turn into other cells. They leap into action to help heal and repair damaged tissues as it occurs. Our body’s supply of stem cells declines as we age, making it harder fully repair injured or damaged tissues. Stem Cell Therapy help enhance potency of our stem cells by aspirating or extracting stem cells from specific area with high volume of stem cells, then concentrating and purifying the cells and re-injecting them into the knee to trigger the body’s natural healing and regenerative mechanism.
Stem Cell Therapy will trigger the repair of osteoarthritic cartilage in the knee and it will receive the debilitating symptoms, such as pain stiffness, disability or immobility to do physical activities. Clinical trials have provided supporting evidence of the effectiveness of Stem Cell Therapy for the treatment of wide range of knee conditions, such as osteoarthritis.
