ACL, PCL, and Meniscus Tears are injuries of the connective tissue in the Knee. An ACL tear is the tearing of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, which connects the upper leg bone (femur) and lower leg bone (shin). A PCL tear is a tear of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament, which is located within the knee joint where it stabilizes the articulating bones, particularly the femur and the tibia, during movement. A Meniscus tear is a tear of a ligament located in the front of the knee, which serves to “cushion” the joint.
These connective tissue injuries are often the result of traumatic blows to the knee such as in a car accident, falling hard on your knee, landing on it wrong, etc. These injuries often result in inflammation, discomfort and in some cases instability. Surgery is most often recommended—until now.
WHY USE REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Regenerative medicine may be used to treat the damaged or poorly functioning connective tissue of the knee that is causing discomfort, inflammation, and decreased range of motion. If you are suffering from an ACL, PCL or Meniscal Tear, you can try Regenerative Medicine for an alternative to steroid injections and/or surgery.
CHONDROMALACIA “RUNNERS KNEE”
Chondromalacia patellae is inflammation or damage to the connective tissue of the cartilage at the back of the kneecap (patella). Patients often describe the discomfort to be “at the front of the knee”. Chondromalacia patellae may develop when the knee is overused or injured, making this is a common injury for runners.
Why Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative Medicine may be used to treat the injured or poorly functioning connective tissue of the patella that is causing pain and decreased mobility. If you are suffering from Chondromalacia, you can try Regenerative Medicine for a painless alternative to cortisone injections and/or surgery.
REGENERATIVE MEDICINE ADVANTAGE
Regenerative Medicine is an all-natural biologic therapy that is designed to treat connective tissue ailments by supplementing the injured or damaged tissues. Regenerative Medicine fluid tissue matrix that provides powerful Growth Factors, Collagens, Extracellular Proteins and Bioactive Molecules naturally found in human placental tissues. These placental tissue components may provide your body with the foundation it needs to reduce inflammation, support proper tissue remodeling and avoid scar tissue formation.
