Knee Pain Alternatives to Knee Surgery

When it comes to managing knee pain and avoiding knee surgery, there are several alternatives worth considering. These alternatives include:

  1. Medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can help manage knee pain. However, it’s important to use these medications properly and consult with a healthcare professional such as Dr. Lox for guidance.
  2. Lifestyle modifications: Maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in low-impact exercises, such as swimming or cycling, can help reduce stress on the knee joint and improve symptoms.
  3. Injections: Stem cell therapy. Consulting with an expert such as Dr. Lox to determine if you are a good candidate for Regenerative Therapy.

Knee Osteoarthritis

In OA, where the cartilage covering the ends of the bones starts to deteriorate, stem cell therapy may offer a potential treatment option. Stem cells can be obtained from sources such as bone marrow. These stem cells can then be injected into the knee joint to potentially promote tissue regeneration and reduce pain.

Consult With an Expert

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of these alternatives can vary depending on the underlying cause and severity of the knee pain.

Additionally, stem cell therapy may not be suitable or effective for all individuals with knee pain, and individual results may vary.

If you are considering stem cell therapy for knee pain, it is essential to consult with a qualified healthcare professional who can assess your specific condition and guide you in making an informed decision. Dr. Lox has treated many patients with knee pain from all over the world.
