Knee arthritis means you have stiffness, pain, and inflammation in the knee joint. Arthritis isn’t a single diagnosis but rather a medical term that means joint inflammation.
Your knees are major, weight-bearing joints that play a significant role in your body’s mobility. Your knees help you stand, walk, climb, and squat.
Though arthritis can affect any joint, the knees are especially vulnerable because of the daily stress placed on them. Having knee arthritis makes life difficult.
A few of the arthritic conditions that cause inflammation and pain in the knees are:
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of knee arthritis. Also called degenerative joint disease (DJD), osteoarthritis causes joint pain due to the gradual wearing away of the cartilage that separates the bones in the joint and allows them to move smoothly.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder. People with RA suffer from joint pain and inflammation because their immune system mistakenly attacks the joint lining. When left untreated, RA can permanently damage the joint.
Knee injuries are common and increase your risk of developing knee arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis.
Breakthrough Regenerative Orthopedics is an innovative and progressive sports medicine practice that specializes in the nonsurgical treatment of knee arthritis. They personalize treatment based on which knee arthritis you have and how severe it is.
Treatments include activity changes, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory drugs. They also offer joint injections for knee arthritis, including:
PRP therapy is a joint injection made from a sample of your own blood. It contains plasma with a high concentration of platelets. The injection stimulates your body’s natural repair process, reducing inflammation and restoring joint health.
PRGF is similar to PRP injections but contains additional growth factors, substances that aid your body’s repair process.
Your body has its own set of stem cells that it uses to make specialized cells. Breakthrough Regenerative Orthopedics extracts and processes your stem cells and injects them into your knee joint to reduce inflammation and heal the damaged tissue.
