The UK's most common joint problem

Knee pain is a very common condition with many causes, including arthritis. Over 70,000 knee replacement operations are carried out each year in the UK, about four out of five of them are in women.

Although knee replacements are a very common procedure, knee replacement is major surgery which carries the associated risks and long recovery times. Before considering a knee replacement it is advisable to look into non-surgical treatments, those seeking alternatives to surgery may choose stem cell therapies.

Non-surgical solutions to knee pain

Traditional options to repair debilitating knee pain or osteoarthritis are limited.

These standard approaches include cortisone steroid injections that simply mask the pain, risky joint replacement surgery, or simple physical therapy which does not target the root causes.

Stem cell therapy and/or Shockwave Therapy offer powerful non-surgical alternatives to knee replacements using a combination of the purest stem cells with impulses of sound energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues stimulating cell regeneration and healing, and decreasing local factors which can cause pain. Get back to doing all the things you love, faster and without invasive surgery.

Alternatives to knee replacement surgery:

    • Lifestyle adjustments
    • Physical therapy
    • Hyaluronic acid injections
    • Steroid injections
    • Prolotherapy
    • Arthroscopic surgery
    • Stem cell therapy
    • Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTTĀ®)
    • Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Common knee conditions include; ACL Tears, Knee Osteoarthritis, Knee Meniscus, Patellar Tendinopathy, Bakers Cyst, Torn meniscus, Patellofemoral Syndrome.

Stem cell therapy for knees has the potential to decrease inflammation, halt the progression of the arthritic damage, repair joint cartilage, and may delay or avoid knee replacement surgery.
