Knee Conditions

If you suffer with any of the following knee conditions, the treatments available at Regenerative Medicine of Raynham can restore your health and help you live pain-free!

Meniscus Tear

Foot and Ankle Pain

Meniscus tears are usually very painful and limiting. The knee will not operate correctly with this type of injury. The meniscus is located at the knee joint, and is a rubbery piece of cartilage that acts as the body’s shock absorber and also acts as a pad to stabilize and protect the knee. Meniscus tears are of three degrees: severe, moderate and minor. A severe meniscus tear is when bits of ruptured meniscus enter the knee joint and affects the function of the knee causing a lot of pain. But for minor and moderate meniscus tears, the pain usually disappears after conventional treatment or a few weeks of rest. At Regenerative Medicine of Raynham, we offer a non-invasive alternative to surgery and steroid injections for this problem. We also treat the underlying issues that cause the pain using an advanced form of Regenerative Cell Therapy.

Knee Degeneration

The knees are used in so many daily motions, feeling pain with each movement is debilitating. Joint degeneration generally develops over time, but can suddenly worsen and become more severe and disabling. Cartilage or other soft tissues within the knee joint can begin to dehydrate, deteriorate, or become damaged from some type of injury. Once these start to wear down, or degenerate, friction within the joint can lead to inflammation, swelling, bone spurs, and other painful symptoms. At Regenerative Medicine of Raynham, we utilize a natural Regenerative Treatment to promote healing at the site of the pain, instead of using pain killers or surgical operations. Concentrated amounts of these cells are injected into the affected area, and immediately reduce inflammation and reverse damage and deterioration of tissue.

 

Ligament Injury

The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are both major ligaments providing strength and stability within the knee joint. Injuries to these ligaments are painful, debilitating, and have historically been a challenge to treat and heal. In the past, these kinds of injuries could cause what was considered permanent damage to the knee joints. Traditionally, the most common treatment for torn ligaments in the knee is arthroscopic surgery and reconstruction. At Regenerative Medicine of Raynham, we use procedures like Regenerative Cell Therapy as a non-surgical treatment option for those suffering from knee injuries and damage to soft tissues in the joints. Using these cells in concentrated amounts to target the injured area, the body is able to reduce inflammation and heal itself naturally.

Chondromalacia Patella

Also known as “runner’s knee,” chondromalacia is inflammation of the underside of the kneecap, and deterioration of the cartilage that supports it. When this cartilage is damaged or wears down, it becomes difficult to bend and straighten out the leg. This condition is common among young athletes, but may also be present in older individuals with arthritis of the knee. At Regenerative Medicine of Raynham, we offer Regenerative Cell Therapy and other regenerative medicine techniques that provide natural treatment alternatives to pain medications, steroid injections, and surgery. Using these cells, our specialists are able to target specific areas of inflammation or injury and restore damaged tissues. These are cutting-edge techniques that have provided relief and healing to so many of our patients with knee pain.
