Knee Pain

There are many causes for knee pain including trauma, physiological misalignment and overuse. Osteoarthritis is also a common cause of knee pain. In 2010, there were roughly 10.4 million patient visits to doctors’ offices because of common knee injuries such as fractures, dislocations, sprains, and ligament tears. Knee injury is one of the most common reasons people see their doctors. Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. Many knee injuries can be successfully treated with simple measures, such as bracing and rehabilitation exercises. Other injuries may require surgery to correct. And some injuries may be a candidate for conservative Orthobiologic therapies such as PRP, Amniotic Allograft, Adipose Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (ADMSC), Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) or some combination of these procedures. The knee is the largest joint in the body, and one of the most easily injured. It is made up of four main things: bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.
