Knee pain can be caused by injuries and degeneration of bone, capsule, ligaments, meniscus and articular surface cartilage or the covering of the contact parts of the joint. A comprehensive history with a careful and thorough examination is always necessary to accurately evaluate the symptoms and the cause of your pain. Imaging studies are often needed, including x-rays, MRIs, ultrasound and CT scans.
Specific ligament injuries as well as normal use and the wear-and-tear over time can cause degeneration, as can repetitive stress and acute injury. Additionally, the accumulation of movements thins the knee cartilage and can cause bone-on-bone conditions creating knee pain. The history and description of symptoms are critical in arriving at the correct diagnosis. Early treatment of these conditions can often minimize the need for surgery and further joint degeneration. Regenerative medical techniques are a new, non-surgical and modern approach to the treatment of painful joints. Much of the scientific basis for these treatments comes from stem cell research. Regenerating damaged tissue and promoting the healing of injuries and joint degeneration specifically applies to the knee joint that does so much of the work of daily walking, standing and working.

To not be able to move or get out of bed for about three years, it just took my heart and my soul – it took everything I loved… I’m doing Kung Fu … getting ready for competition again… You can’t put a price on feeling good. You can’t put a price on your health.Colleen D.
