How Cell Therapy Targets the Root Cause of Knee Pain

Knee pain can significantly disrupt one’s quality of life by limiting mobility, causing discomfort, and reducing overall physical activity.

Traditional treatments often focus on symptom management rather than addressing the underlying causes of pain.

At Jackson Healing Arts, we embrace a more innovative and targeted approach to knee pain through cell therapy.

These cutting-edge treatments not only alleviate symptoms but also promotes natural healing at the cellular level, targeting the root causes of knee pain.

Understanding Knee Pain and Its Common Causes

Knee pain arises from various sources, including osteoarthritis, injuries like meniscus tears or ligament damage, and chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

These issues often result from or cause damage to the cartilage, inflammation in the joint, or degradation of synovial fluid, which lubricates the joints.

Traditional treatments may provide temporary relief; however, they do not always address the biological deterioration within the knee.

What is Cell Therapy?

Cell therapy involves using the body’s own cells or biologically active materials to repair damaged tissues.

At Jackson Healing Arts, we focus on two primary types of cell therapies:

Human Cellular Tissue Products (HCT/Ps)

These products are derived from donated human birth tissues, such as placenta or amniotic fluid, which are rich in growth factors, cytokines, and other regenerative elements. They do not involve the destruction of embryonic cells and are ethically sourced. HCT/Ps are used to create an environment that supports tissue repair and growth.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

This treatment involves concentrating platelets from the patient’s own blood and reinjecting them into the knee. The high concentration of growth factors in PRP accelerates the healing of injured tissues by stimulating the repair processes.

How Does Cell Therapy Work to Relieve Knee Pain?

Cell therapy treats knee pain by directly targeting the physiological issues that cause discomfort and immobility:

  • Regeneration of Tissue: Both HCT/Ps and PRP contain growth factors that promote the regeneration of damaged cartilage and tissues within the knee. By restoring the structural integrity of the knee joint, these therapies help alleviate pain and improve function.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: They have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling and pain in the knee joint. By modulating the body’s inflammatory response, these therapies can decrease ongoing discomfort and prevent further damage.
  • Stimulation of Healing: The growth factors and cytokines in HCT/Ps and PRP recruit and activate the body’s own cells to the site of injury, enhancing the natural healing processes. This leads to the restoration of knee joint components so that they can function normally without pain.

Benefits of Using HCT/Ps and PRP for Knee Pain

The use of HCT/Ps and PRP in treating knee pain offers several advantages over traditional methods:

  • Minimally Invasive: Unlike knee replacement surgery, cell therapy is minimally invasive, involving only injections into the affected areas. This reduces recovery time and the risk of complications.
  • Long-Lasting Relief: By addressing the root causes of knee pain, HCT/Ps and PRP provide more sustainable relief compared to temporary solutions like pain medication or cortisone shots.
  • Safety and Tolerance: Since PRP uses the patient’s own blood and HCT/Ps are processed to be safe, there is minimal risk of allergic reactions or rejection by the body.
  • Improved Mobility: Patients often experience restored mobility and a return to normal activities due to the effective healing of knee tissues.
Who Can Benefit from Cell Therapy for Knee Pain?

Cell therapy is suited for individuals suffering from:

  • Degenerative knee diseases like osteoarthritis
  • Acute knee injuries such as sprains or ligament tears
  • Chronic knee pain with inadequate responses to conventional treatments
  • Sports injuries, such as torn ligaments and tendinitis
  • Overuse injuries

At Jackson Healing Arts, we are dedicated to providing advanced treatments that not only alleviate symptoms but also target and heal the underlying causes of knee pain.
