Alternatives for Knee Pain Relief
With Gel Injections

If steroid injections don’t help, Georgia Medical Treatment Center can inject a pain relief medication called sodium hyaluronate (brand names are Hyalgan, Synvisc, Supartz, or Ortho-Visc) into the knee. The sodium hyaluronate will help the joint move smoothly, reducing or relieving the pain of osteoarthritis. Usually a series of injections over several weeks is needed to achieve the desired pain relief.

AMNIOTIC FLUID INJECTIONS TO TREAT PAINFUL KNEES

A Randomized Controlled Single-Blind Study Demonstrating Superiority of Amniotic Suspension Allograft Injection over Hyaluronic Acid and Saline Control for Modification of Knee Osteoarthritis Symptoms

Benefits of Amniotic Fluid Injection Therapy

  • Soothes inflammation
  • Delivers potent nutrients and over 200 different growth factors
  • 100% natural and drug-free
  • Nonsurgical and painless
  • Amniotic regenerative growth factors contain no steroids. Instead, the injections rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents, such as cytokines.
  • Amniotic regenerative growth factors contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates cartilage and promotes new cartilage growth..
  • With amniotic regenerative growth factors, there is no threat of patient rejection.
  • Lastly, amniotic fluid is a highly concentrated source of regenerative growth factors, which makes this type of regenerative growth factors injection preferable over embryonic regenerative growth factors and the patient’s own regenerative growth factors (from fat or bone marrow).

How Do Amniotic Membrane regenerative growth factors Injections Work?

Too many people are living with knee pain. In fact, many people with pain from bone-on-bone osteoarthritis have been able to stave off knee surgery for several years. Unfortunately, many feel that they have no choice but to get knee replacement surgery, yet they fear these potential risks and complications:

Amniotic regenerative growth factors Injections for Chronic Knee Pain, Arthritis & More

If you have chronic knee pain, possibly from Osteoarthritis or a past sports injury, you could be an amniotic regenerative growth factors injection candidate. These injections can help your body heal the knee pain and get you feeling better quickly. Amniotic fluid is highly concentrated in regenerative growth factors, hyaluronic acid which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility, proteins, cytokines and other important compounds. Hyaluronic acid is the acid that is naturally occurring in the knee. Boosting your natural hyaluronic acid can help to cushion your knee so that there is less bone on bone pain. Studies have shown that amniotic fluid is naturally regenerative and can reduce inflammation and scars. Amniotic fluid is the fluid surrounding a fetus in pregnancy also contains nutrients, hormones, and antibodies. During most pregnancies, this fluid is thrown away after birth. Now, however, consenting mothers of cesarean section babies can donate this fluid because of its amazing regenerative process. It is important to stand out that these cells come from the amniotic sac and are not part of the embryo. Amniotic regenerative growth factors therapy is a very safe and effective treatment. More than 10,000 injections have been performed without a single reported adverse side effect. The fluid contains the growth factors that help to stimulate tissue growth, regenerative growth factors activity and naturally reduce inflammation. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which acts as a lubricant and promotes cartilage growth. While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, regenerative growth factors actually restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief.

Who is a candidate for Amniotic Regenerative Growth Factors Therapy?

This treatment is ideal for patients suffering from one of the following:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Soft tissue or intra-articular injuries, including meniscus and cartilage
  • Achilles tears
  • Epicondylitis
  • Tendon or ligament tears
  • Sacroiliac pain
  • Joint pain in the knee, shoulder, fingers, wrist, ankles or toes
  • Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Wound healing
  • Hip pain
  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain

Why Suffer Needlessly?

Too many people are living with knee pain. In fact, many people with pain from bone-on-bone osteoarthritis have been able to stave off knee surgery for several years. Unfortunately, many feel that they have no choice but to get knee replacement surgery, yet they fear these potential risks and complications:

  • Post-surgical pain that can persist for days or weeks
  • Allergic reactions to surgical anesthesia
  • Injury to nerves and blood vessels in surrounding areas
  • Swelling, fever and drainage caused by infections
  • RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) – undue pain with a lengthy recovery
  • Stiffness and limited range of motion
  • Bleeding or blood clots that can cause additional swelling, skin discoloration and that may have serious consequences
  • Skin complications and excessive scarring

Why subject yourself to these risks?

With our knee therapy program we combine viscosupplementation to replace the synovial fluid with physical therapy and a special knee brace to support your knee joint after our knee therapy protocol. We found that the combined approach of these treatments are the main reasons for our success.

Physical Therapy for the Knee

Physical therapy for knee pain focuses on the muscles, ligaments, and returning strength and normal function. If you tried physical therapy alone it may not have worked for you because it treats only one aspect of your condition and not the actual physical structures of the joint itself. Yet in combination with the viscosupplementation therapy, physical therapy is a critical part of strengthening and supporting the knee.

Knee Bracing

Our knee-unloading support device has been shown to increase joint space, reducing the pressure on the cartilage of the knee as well as the knee capsule. In concert with our Knee Program, this un-loading effect allows the the knee viscosupplement injection to bond with the bodies existing synovial fluid with greater ease resulting in both faster and longer lasting positive pain relief and healing outcomes.

  • Adjustable – Multi-directional adjustments lessens pain and aids the viscosupplement in bonding with the knee joint’s existing synovial fluid
  • Durable – Rivets are used, instead of screws that come loose or break
  • Wearable – Fits beneath slacks so is worn more often
  • Comfortable – Cushioned to avoid skin irritation extending wear time
