If you have suffered a knee injury, you will know that recovery is far from a straightforward road. What may have been a one-time incident, can easily spiral into lifelong, reoccurring complications and issues causing pain and discomfort longterm. Besides ongoing physio and avoiding activities that you may have once performed with ease, it may feel that there is very little that can be done to turn back the clock on a weakened knee - but now, thanks to stem cell therapy, there is light at the end the tunnel.
Stem cell treatment for knee injury is an extremely powerful healer. This is because, on a biological level, it is able to restore a joint to its state prior to the offending injury by rebuilding the structures beneath.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Ligament injuries are among the most common causes of musculoskeletal joint pain and disability; they are known for causing disruption to balance, mobility and stability. Repeated strain on the knee joint following ligament damage can then, in turn, cause secondary damage due to the transferred force and weight onto other structures surrounding the joint.
Knees are amongst the most common offenders for this due to the consistent weight bearing, and suspension needed to performing daily activities. Because of this, the sad fact remains that once a joint has sustained initial damage, it is likely to pave the way for other complications later on. That was until Stem cell therapy was ventured as a treatment option, and care began addressing these injuries on a cellular level.
Stem Cell Treatment for knees works by directing new, healthy cells towards specific points of injury - cells which are then able to build upon the damaged cells and eventually work in their place. As a result, there is an abundance of evidence showing how patients who have struggled with chronic pain and reoccurant knee flare-ups for years are finally able to leave these concerns in their past.
There are many things which can cause knee problems, most commonly: arthritis, tendinitis, gout and sports injury (such as meniscal tears, cruciate ligaments tears, etc.) Stem cell treatment for knees is unique in that it can offer demonstrable improvement to all of these simply by replenishing the fibres beneath. Stem cell therapy has already proven capable of entirely erasing the need for repeated physio or hydratherapy in those that have been subject to sports injury. This is because restoration relies on the regrowth of the underlying structures, instead of on the strengthening of the surrounding muscle.
Similarly, treatment has been used to altogether replace the need for many common surgical reconstructions, particularly of the ACL and PCL. Stem cell therapy has, in fact, identified itself as the far superior option. This is because traditional surgical grafts must be placed at a steeper angle and therefore cause more compression and eventual degredation of the cartilage. Sadly, this means that many patients go on to develop painful arthritis from as young as 30 years old. Not to mention those that retear the exact same muscle and/or experience reconstruction failures.
For those that suffer knee injury, one of the hardest pills to swallow is the inability to participate in things which they once enjoyed. Pivot-centric activities that are very demanding on the knees - such as skiing or ice skating - as well as high impact sports which require sudden changes in direction are often off the table entirely due to pain and apprehension. In these instances, stem cell therapy is the breakthrough that these patients have been looking for, endeavouring to physically repair the existing ligament in full, instead of merely patching up the damage.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
We can think of stem cells as the body's own blood work building blocks. They live inside each and every one of us, and have the ability to differentiate into other cells about the body and perform their respective roles. Essentially, they work to replace damaged or lost cells as and when they are needed.
Day-to-day, they are at work constantly replenishing and renewing tissue - although, as we age or are subject to injury, our bodies are less able to provide the sheer volume needed to repair the full extent of the damage that the body has come up against. Stem cells are most powerful and potent at their embryonic stage and weaken incrementally with age. This is when we may choose to undergo stem cell treatment.
Thanks to such drastic advancements the medical arena, we may now isolate these stem cells and use them to repair localised damage by reinjecting them. They are first extracted from an area of high volume - typically from adipose fat, bone marrow or umbilical lining - propogated in lab conditions and then reinjected into specific points of injury - in this case, the damaged parts of the knee.
The full extent of what stem cell therapy is able to achieve is still yet unknown, however - at present - we are seeing very exciting improvements to knee injuries related to sport (anterior or posterior cruciate ligaments, meniscal tears, sprains etc.), arthritis in the knee, muscular dystrophy, gout and many other causes of chronic inflammation.
If you are having ongoing issues with your knees which is resulting in pain, aching, swelling, stiffness or mobility issues, stem cell treatment can offer relief. Those in need of full knee replacement may also feel the benefit of stem cell therapy, offering patients a more natural and forward-thinking alternative to surgery.
Stem cell treatment itself offers patients permanent results - of course, patients should keep in mind that it cannot prevent future injury.
Results are permanent as stem cell therapy is a regnerative treatment. This means that it prompts the growth of all-natural healing resources and makes use of no artifical materials or chemicals which have time-sensitive effects. Those all-new resources then become part of you, and will continue to serve you indefinitely!
Stem cell treatment for knees does not hurt - for either the donor or the recipient. This is because local anaesthetic is used where necessary to ensure that the patient is as comfortable as possible throughout treatment.
Those that are a little aprehensive about the use of needles may find treatment to be a little nerve-wracking, but we can assure you that pain is not a factor that you should be concerned with. As always, we will do absolutely everything in our power to keep your feeling as relaxed as humanly possible.
Stem Cells are harvested from either your own body or a nominated donor. They are found in adipose cells (fat), bone marrow, or umbilical lining (as is the case with embryonic stem cells.
Some people feel more comfortable making use of their own adult stem cells for treatment, whereas others may pursue embryonic stem cells for their significantly-higher concentration. In these instances, stem cells are harvested very soon after birth in a GMP-regulated laboratory.
All stem cells thoroughly screened for infection, genetic abnormality and disease in the lab prior to use, therefore patients needn't worry about this or about experiencing any pain whilst either donating or receving stem cells. Local anaesthetic is always used to ensure the patient is most comfortable throughout.
