Knee

The knee is the most common area that we treat at our clinic. We offer the best in regenerative options for knee pain and alternatives to surgery. The goal of prolotherapy of the knee is to address knee joint instability to improve joint function and reduce pain.

A meta-analysis of controlled trials of PRP for knee osteoarthritis reviewed results from 1,248 participants showed that PRP injections reduced knee pain and positive results remained at the 12 month follow-up period. This is good news for those looking for long term solutions for their knee pain.

Common symptoms of knee joint instability:

  • Knee pain
  • Crepitus (grinding, creaking, cracking, crunching, or popping)
  • Knee swelling
  • Decrease of knee mobility
  • Loss of muscle strength

Long term joint instability, when left untreated can lead to worsening destruction of joint movement which can lead to degenerative changes and osteoarthritis.
