What Is Regenerative Medicine For Knee Pain?
The goal of regenerative medicine is to treat your knee pain by healing and regenerating the damaged tissue in your knee. The treatments utilize growth factors and proteins naturally found in humans in order to give your body the tools it needs to regenerate tissue, reduce scarring, and alleviate pain.
Regenerative treatments, such as PalinGen Flow, contain extracellular proteins that stimulate tissue growth without the use of steroidal components. For knee pain relief, injections can be applied to treat damaged or scarred tissue within the knee.
How Will Regenerative Medicine Relieve My Knee Pain?
Regenerative treatments contain anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial ingredients, including amnion and hyaluronic acid. These proteins can repair damaged areas in the knee, by stimulating growth of new tissue.
PalinGen Flow injections and other similar regenerative medicine treatments have a high concentration of proteins and mesenchymal cells. By working with the body’s natural repair mechanism, these proteins and cells reduce inflammation and regenerate damaged tissue in the knee.
What Is Used In Regenerative Medicine Treatments For Knee Pain?
Regenerative medicine treatments contain multi-potent cells that have been shown to develop real cartilage, and prevent joint degeneration in the knee. Regenerative treatments also contain hyaluronic acid, a crucial component in the natural lubrication of joints.
How Is The Treatment Performed?
The procedure takes between five to ten minutes and can be performed at the doctor’s office. The medicine is injected, by the doctor, into the knee joint. The procedure is usually not painful, however an anesthetic may be used, if desired.
Most patients only need a single treatment in order to experience significant pain relief. PalinGen Flow and other treatments may start relieving pain within one to two weeks, though full recovery may take months.

- Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) Tears – a torn ligament in the inner knee, caused by
force to the knee
- Arthritis – the inflammation of the joints, or the degeneration of cartilage
- Tendinitis –inflammation of the tendons, usually due to overuse
- Bursitis – the inflammation of the bursa, or the fluid-filled cushion between the bones of
- Runner’s knee – an injury resulting from the stress the kneecap places on the thigh bone
Symptoms of knee pain treated by Healthpointe’s Regenerative Medicine program include:
- Joint pain
Regenerative medicines, such as PalinGen Flow, contain properties that have been shown to repair damaged tissue in the knee. Regenerative medicines have also been found to fight against arthritic conditions and muscoskeletal injuries.
