What You Need to Know About Knee Pain and Restorative Injections
Knee pain is a symptom of several knee injuries. The more severe cases of these injuries are often treated with surgery. But, with restorative injections, you have a non-invasive alternative for treatment. And, it can even help with accelerating the healing process when surgery is the only option for treatment.
Here are some knee injuries that restorative injections can address:
Knee strain is caused by the stretching or tearing of the muscles or tendons around the knee. Most knee strains can be treated at home with proper rest and bracing. But, surgery may be required to repair the damage in cases of severe muscle strain, wherein the pain is intolerable, chronic, or there is persistent numbness or tingling. In such a case, restorative injections provide a non-invasive alternative and may repair the damage and accelerate healing in the area.
Knee Ligament Injury
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) are the ligaments often sprained or torn in the knee. For ligament injuries that did not completely pull apart, patients can opt for restorative injections with a combination of other non-invasive treatments (such as PRP therapy) instead of going through an operation. As for injuries that require surgery, restorative therapy can decrease the time of recovery and reduce the pain during rehabilitation.
Arthritis is a degenerative condition that damages the cartilage that protects the ends of the bones in the knee joint. Restorative injections can help relieve pain and swelling and improve the range of motion by regrowing the cartilage in the knee joint. Even in cases when surgery is necessary, restorative cells can be applied during the operation to help with post-surgery recovery and improve its results.
A meniscus tear is often the result of sudden twisting movements while bearing weight. Although mild cases of it can be treated by resting and immobilizing the knee, surgery is recommended for severe meniscus tears. Restorative therapy is beneficial in both scenarios by helping in the rebuilding of the meniscus, which increases the patient’s rate of recovery and ensures the healing of the damaged tissue.
Patellar tendonitis is an injury to the tendon that connects the kneecap to the shinbone. Its treatment is done through rest and medication to manage its symptoms, as well as physical therapy to strengthen the tendon. Although rare, surgery is done when the tendon is torn. Restorative injections can help in both surgical and non-surgical treatment by helping alleviate the symptoms and reducing downtime caused by the injury.
Runner's knee is caused by one or a combination of two conditions - iliotibial band syndrome and patellofemoral pain syndrome. Both conditions are caused by the repetitive bending and straightening of the knee, direct impact on the knee, or poor biomechanics or muscle imbalances in the legs. Rest and physical therapy is the standard treatment for runner's knee. But, unlike restorative injections, these do not address the damage done by runner’s knee on the surrounding tissues in the knee.
A knee fracture is when there is damage to the patella bone in the knee joint. This kind of fracture is caused when you fall directly onto your knee or when you receive a direct blow to it. Hairline breaks can be treated non-surgically with a cast or splint to prevent movement and keep the bones in place for several weeks. On the other hand, if there are displacement or complications, surgery will be necessary to realign, remove unnecessary fragments, and hold the knee bone pieces together. Restorative injections can help in both scenarios by accelerating the healing process and preventing healing complications of bone fractures.
Your Options for Non-Surgical Knee Pain Treatment
Your options for non-surgical knee pain treatment include bracing, pain medications, physical therapy, steroid injections, gel injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, and restorative injections. Out of all these, only PRP injections and restorative injections provide the most viable solutions for long-term relief from knee pain with physical therapy rarely being an option for those with limited range of movement or experiencing moderate to severe pain.
PRP therapy and restorative injections are classified as restorative medicine, which aims to relieve pain by repairing, replacing, or rebooting damaged tissues in the knee. Between PRP therapy and restorative injections, the latter provides more advanced healing effects since not only does restorative therapy initiate the body’s repair response, like PRP injections, it also enhances the cell activity for tissue restoration in the injection site.
