If you’re currently dealing with significant knee or joint pain, you’ve likely thought your options are either surgery or a potentially addictive course of pain medication. At Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, we’re here to tell you this is not the case. We’ve recently seen a number of positive outcomes using intraosseous treatments for knee pain.
What are Intraosseous Treatments for Knee Pain or Joint Pain?
For quite some time, the way that joint or knee arthritis was treated was through treatments placed directly into the joint. Based on recent findings, we’re now learning that the cartilage receives nutrients from the bone itself. Think of the bone as the soil and the cartilage as the plant. Because of these new findings, we can now treat both the bone and the joint. This allows us to nourish the cartilage that sits on top of the bone.
There is a Limit to What Intraosseous Treatments Can Do for Your Joint Pain
At the Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, intraosseous treatments are best used for knee or hip pain. In addition, we’ve found that there is little we can do once you have severe degeneration where you have bone-on-bone contact. This is why it’s so important to come in when you first notice joint pain. This way, we can treat your issue before it becomes too late.
Intraosseous Treatments for Joint Pain Can Be Last Ditch Effort Before Surgery
While surgery is sometimes necessary, why not try intraosseous treatments before committing to the risks associated with hip or knee surgery? These minimally invasive treatments can help you reduce joint pain and rebuild the cartilage that protects your joints.
