Knee pain just doesn’t affect your knee. It sidelines your tennis game, thwarts your grandkids’ play date at the park, and makes ever step harder to take. How to get back in the swim? Intervention with multiple tools can treat pain and help restore vital range-of-motion.
According to Dr. Frank Ostir, Ostir Physical Medicine in Joliet, when the cushioning fluid in the knee joint dries out and degenerates, bone begins rubbing on bone which causes pain. To add a layer of relief, many sufferers opt for “Supartz Natural Joint Fluid Therapy.” This non-surgical treatment decreases the pain by boosting lubrication, often lost through osteoarthritis. Ostir explains that these minimally invasive Supartz injections are all-natural substances already present in the body’s joint and cartilage.
Other non-surgical knee pain relief options include “Bionicare knee therapy,” where Ostir delivers electrical signals through an external knee brace to stimulate and heal joint tissue.
Amniotic stem cell therapy is growing in popularity due to its success in relieving joint pain. Ostir explains, “Within 15 minutes, a patient with arthritic knees or a partially torn shoulder rotator cuff can be injected with amniotic stem cells, and begin the healing process that’s more than three times faster than standardized care.” The stem cells are derived from caesarian section deliveries, screened, and certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Ostir adds, “There are 30 times more stem cells per volume in amniotic stem cells than adult stem cells. They also have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, plus human growth factors. They speed up the body’s own healing abilities, with no risk of tissue rejection.”
Some treatments may be covered by insurance. The first step is to be evaluated to determine if regenerative medicine could benefit specific pain issues.
