Knee pain can significantly limit your lifestyle.
There are many causes to knee pain. Here are some of the more common reasons for the pain that do not include bone fracture or gout:
Knee Ligament Injuries
Osteoarthritis in the Knee
Most of these require resting the knee. Taking weight off the knee and elevating the leg will help in the short term. However, if anti-inflammatories and rest do not work, we may have the best solution before you consider surgery.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) will allow your own stem cells to heal the knee. This is self-healing by drawing a tube of your blood, separating out the part that is involved in wound repair, activating it and injecting it into the knee. Many people find that they no longer need to consider a procedure because their symptoms are significantly improved.
