Knee pain that affects the way we walk or play sports can be an acute injury to ligaments, tendons, or cartilage, or it can be rooted in chronic degenerative issues, like osteoarthritis of the knee joint.

Regenerative therapy for knee pain
The knee joints are predisposed to degenerative changes (osteoarthritis) or inflammation (bursitis, tendinitis). Pelvic obliquity, leg length discrepancy and uneven gait, and repetitive motion injuries lead to knee pain.
Traditional orthopedic treatments have focused on corticosteroid (cortisone) injections and ultimately surgery. Our experience and expertise have taught us that most of knee sports injuries or degenerative conditions can be treated successfully with regenerative injections of platelet-rich plasma or bone marrow-derived stem cells.
