Research has found that stem cell treatments are effective for knee pain. WeMED Health and The American Stem Cell Foundation in Houston utilize evidence-based Eastern and Western medicine and combine regenerative medicine such as FDA-regulated Stem Cell Therapy. weMED Health has successfully helped the majority of its patients regrow their cartilage.
The cartilage covering the ends of the bones enables the bones to glide smoothly against one another with only slight friction. Stem cell therapy uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to help repair and slow the deterioration of body tissues.
In common daily activities like walking, bending, standing, and lifting, many knee problems can arise as a result of the aging process and continual wear and stress on the knee joint (such as arthritis). Osteoarthritis is a degenerative process where the cartilage in the joint gradually wears away, causing the joint to become inflamed thereby destroying the knee cartilage.
Rheumatoid arthritis can also affect the knees by causing the joint to become inflamed and by destroying the knee cartilage. It is one of the few diseases where subjective measures of how a patient feels are among the best predictors of how well a person will respond to treatment and how much the disease will progress.
Stem cells are specialized cells that can multiply reform and develop into different types of tissue. For adults, the ability to regrow new cartilage is even more difficult due to age and lack of stem cells in the cartilages.
Cartilage damage is the most common reason for knee pain. However, weMED Health recommends Physical therapy to strengthen the muscle and ligaments and help stabilize the joint. Massage, acupuncture, cupping and Chinese herbal formulas can also be effective to reduce pain by alleviating swelling, inflammation and the following options:
