     Many people think they’re stuck with their aches and pains because they’ve been told they have ‘arthritis’ in their knees and there was nothing that could be done for them. In the past, if you had arthritis in your knee, there was a high chance of a knee replacement one day. So we take NSAIDs to keep going, cortisone shots, rooster comb, therapies and hopefully you’ll escape the odds… but doubtful. There are 600,000+ knee replacements/yr in the US, a common endpoint for this system of joint care. Fortunately, we now have new options for people with degenerative arthritis with regenerative medicine. Learn more about how this new branch of medical science is turning back the clock on knee arthritis here….

     No one escapes the grip of osteoarthritis – thanks to gravity, everyone gets it. As gravity pulls on your joints through the course of a lifetime, there is a natural amount of wear and tear on everyone’s joints. It’s other compounding factors (plus gravity) that make the difference between normal wear and tear and disabling knee arthritis. These include previous injuries, misalignments, over pronation of feet, obesity, etc.; there are many factors that contribute to the worsening/acceleration of wear and tear that results in joint failure. Then it’s just a matter of time before the joint replacement surgery nightmare becomes a reality. Unfortunately, traditional medical treatment doesn’t offer much in the way of improving joint space and seems to do its best by just delaying the inevitable surgery.

     So far, regenerative medicine has been the only knee arthritis treatment that actually helps improve joint space. The treatments are a simple joint injection (not invasive). Compared to surgery, there are no hospitals, anesthesia, antibiotics or concern of complications. Regenerative medicine uses natural, minimally manipulated products, has no side effects and there is rarely any down time. For many patients, regenerative medicine now provides a new, much safer option for delaying and even possibly avoiding knee replacement.
