What causes knee pain?

Temporary and chronic knee pain can significantly impact your day to day life. Activities that have seemed effortless before—like playing with your children, riding a bicycle or even getting up the stairs—can now become a challenge. There are three major reasons why our knees hurt:

  • Overuse of the joints. Particularly common among athletes and people whose jobs involve completing repetitive physical tasks. Causes various types of inflammation, including bursitis.

“Surgery is rarely the best answer to knee problems”

For decades, patients with knee conditions ranging from osteoarthritis to torn meniscus have been given two main options: go under the knife, or spend months trying to rebuild your knees through physical therapy. In a choice like this, surgery seems like a sensible option. However, there is overwhelming evidence against surgical knee treatment:

  • An increasing number of patients who undergo an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction require a second surgery later on, according to a 2015 study by the Hospital for Special Surgery

CELLAXYS Knee Therapy® employs only non-invasive treatments that enhance your body’s ability to heal itself—like stem cell therapy. Instead of replacing your knee with a foreign object that can be rejected or simply break, our doctors use stem cells—the natural building block of our bodies—to naturally regenerate the damaged knee area.

Stem Cell Therapy Powering Top Athletes

For years now, forms of stem cell therapy have been used by top athletes in adjunction to traditional orthopaedic measures—such as surgery and injections—to heal quicker and grow stronger. Since the late 1990s, a number of leading athletes, including Tiger Woods and Alex Rodriguez, have publically lead the transition away from traditional orthopaedic alternatives such as cortisone (which reduces pain quickly, but damages the joint tissue irreversibly.) With high complication risk and long recovery times of surgery, stem cell therapy has become one of the go-to therapy methods for the sports elite.

With roots in top-level athletics, stem cell therapy focuses on safety and efficiency. Since stem cells are the natural building blocks of our body, there is virtually no risk of rejection; and, since the method is non-invasive, the recovery time is minimal (4-6 weeks).

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Human bodies are made out of small particles called cells—nerve cells, bone cells, blood cells, muscle cells, and so on.

Stem cells are the natural ‘repair’ cells of our bodies. Their ‘job’ is to morph into a type of cell that is damaged and replace it. For example, when you suffer an injury, it is your stem cells that are trying to regenerate the damaged tissue. Stem cells are involved at every stage of human life—right from the conception.

During CELLAXYS Knee Therapy®, stem cells are harvested from your body, processed into a more concentrated form, and re-injected precisely into the location of the injury (damage).

This way, your body’s natural healing resources are right where they’re needed most.

Dr. Otten Explains How Knee Pain and Treatment

Knees are complex joint structures that are subject to several different types of pain causes. Surgical interventions are dangerous, require prolonged recovery, and are rarely effective. Dr. Otten explains the how and why knee pain occurs, and how to treat it without exposing yourself to significant risks.
