The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. The femur connects to the shin at the knee. The smaller bone that runs alongside the tibia, the fibula, and the kneecap also complete the knee joint. This joint plays a major role in keeping us active and mobile. Many individuals who experience knee injuries or joint degeneration see their physical activity come to a complete halt.

Our experts will develop a personalized treatment plan to help you return to normal, without debilitating knee pain.

When the meniscus cartilage ruptures due to traumatic injuries or due to age-related wear and tear it is referred to as meniscus tear. Meniscus tear is usually very painful and limiting. The knee will not operate correctly with this type of injury. The meniscus is located at the knee joint. It is a rubbery piece of cartilage that acts as the body’s shock absorber and also acts as a pad to stabilize and protect the knee. Meniscus tears are of three degrees: severe, moderate, and minor. A severe meniscus tear is when bits of ruptured meniscus enter the knee joint and affects the function of the knee causing a lot of pain. But for minor and moderate meniscus tears, the pain usually disappears after conventional treatment or a few weeks of rest. Those suffering from meniscus tears are increasingly becoming aware of the implications of removing the meniscus though surgical operation, they also prefer not to risk the side effects that come with steroid injections. Regenerative Medicine of South Jersey offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery and steroid injections for this problem. We can also help treat the underlying issues that cause the pain using Regenerative Medicine of South Jersey’s advanced form of Regenerative Cell Therapy. By using this regenerative approach, the medial collateral ligament can repair itself and regain its function of holding the knee bones in place, thus relieving pressure on other components such as the articular cartilage and meniscus.
Degeneration of the joints can happen in any of the joints in the body, especially those that undergo lots of wear and tear. Your knees are used in so many daily motions, feeling pain with each movement can be debilitating. Joint degeneration will generally develop over time, but it can suddenly worsen and become more severe. Cartilage and other soft tissues within the knee joint can dehydrate, deteriorate, or become damaged from some type of injury. These tissues provide a protective cushion between the bones for smooth movement, and once these start to wear down, friction within the joint can lead to inflammation, swelling, bone spurs, and other painful symptoms.
Developments in Regenerative Medicine make it possible to treat degenerative joint conditions naturally. Regenerative Cell Therapy uses these cells to target the damaged and deteriorating tissues and heal your pain. If you have been suffering the painful effects of knee degeneration, Regenerative Medicine of South Jersey can help alleviate your pain.
ACL or PCL Injury
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are two major ligaments that provide strength and stability within your knee joint. Ligaments are thick bands of tissue that connect your bones, so injuries to these connective tissues can be painful, debilitating, and have been a challenge to treat and heal in the past. These kinds of injuries were previously thought to cause what was considered permanent damage to the knee joints.
Traditionally, the most common treatment for torn ligaments in the knee was invasive arthroscopic surgery and reconstruction. Developments in regenerative medicine have made effective and natural treatments of PCL and ACL injuries within reach. Procedures like Regenerative Cell Therapy offer minimally invasive treatment options for those suffering from knee injuries and require minimal downtime compared to traditional surgeries. This means you can reduce or eliminate your knee pain and get back on your feet with less recovery time!
Chondromalacia, or “runner’s knee”, is inflammation of the underside of the kneecap and the deterioration of cartilage that supports it. When the supporting cartilage is damaged or wears down, it can be difficult to bend and straighten out your leg. This is most common among young athletes, but may also be present in older individuals who have arthritis of the knee.
