Knee Doctor Austin TX

Knee injuries can be difficult to treat. Conventional medicine focuses on dealing with the inflammation, getting plenty of rest, and, eventually, receiving physical therapy. If this treatment plan doesn’t work, you’ll likely need a surgical knee repair or knee replacement. Or, you can simply choose to live with the chronic pain.

With the conventional route, recovery times are extensive, and results are hard to predict. If you can’t wait months to recover, or if you are looking for a non-surgical alternative, regenerative medicine might fit the bill.

You may have heard the terms regenerative, PRP, and stem cell therapy used interchangeably. This usage is incorrect. Regenerative medicine is a broad classification of treatments. PRP, stem cell therapy, regenerative cell therapy, and A2M all fall under the broader category of regenerative medicine.

The primary strategy of regenerative medical techniques is to make use of the body’s innate healing ability. This is often done through a course of injections, with materials drawn from the blood, amniotic membrane, or bone marrow.

Most of these therapies are non-surgical interventions. By enhancing the body’s own ability to repair itself, surgery becomes unnecessary. Recovery time is also shorter, and the injured area usually heals to become stronger than it was before.

Stem Cell Therapy for Knees?

Stem cells are among the only cells in the body that can rebuild the connective tissues. If we feel that you’re a good candidate for this treatment, we’ll perform a biopsy (with a local anesthetic) to remove some of your bone marrow.

Once we’ve extracted the marrow, we separate the Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). The MSCs are responsible for repairing connective tissue and cartilage. The marrow is also rich in growth factors and helpful compounds known as cytokines.

The growth factors promote cellular renewal and repair while the cytokines block the pain receptors in the body. Thus, the area becomes less sensitive to pain as a result.

We then inject this directly into the injured knee and let the healing process take its course.

Who is a candidate?

A good candidate for this therapy is someone with severe instability or a lack of motion. Some of the conditions that receive our regenerative treatments are:

Chronic pain or instability in the knee
  Arthritis
  A limited range of motion

  “Snap, crackle, and pop” sounds (they’re great in your cereal – not in your knees!)
  Torn ACL, MCL, LCL

  Osteoarthritis where the cartilage has worn away completely
  Torn meniscus

If your problem isn’t quite as advanced as these conditions, but you believe it is heading in that direction, call QC Kinetix in Austin, TX. We’ll work with you to halt the degeneration and quickly get you on the road to healing.
