DIAGNOSIS: Painful Symptoms

The hallmark symptom of most knee injuries is pain, which can range from mild to severe. Other symptoms that accompany the pain include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Loss of flexibility
  • Instability of the joint

You may even feel your knee buckling underneath your weight. If you aggravate the symptoms when you walk, run, climb stairs, or stand for extended periods of time, it is now time to visit Dr. Neel Amin, M.D. at Florida Stem CellMD your stem cell therapy physician for an examination that may include X-rays or an MRI. If you want to take a traditional approach, covered by your health insurance, you can also visit American Pain Experts  Dr.  Neel Amin.

You can be diagnosed and evaluated. The following conditions respond well to Stem Cell Therapy:

ACL sprain or tear

  • PCL sprain or tear
  • MCL sprain or tear
  • LCL sprain or tear
  • Meniscus tear

Arthritis —either rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Tendinopathy or tendonitis, such as hamstring tendinopathy or biceps femoris insertional tendinopathy, Patellofemoral syndrome ,Chondromalacia ,Pes anserine bursitis and Baker’s cyst, which happens when a fluid-filled bubble forms in your knee joint.

Who Suffers Knee Problems?

Younger people, especially athletes, more often suffer blunt trauma injuries. Active people hurt their knees due to overuse or inadequate protection. These injuries include patellar tendonitis, patellofemoral syndrome, hamstrings tendinopathy and insertional tendinopathy. Blunt force trauma can lead to knee instability, which causes other problems if not treated.

Older people suffer mostly from degenerative joint disease, secondary to osteoarthritis (link) . Whether caused by normal wear and tear or a particular disease, joint ailments happen when the joint loses its jell-like material, which makes it possible for it to move fluidly without friction and leads to pain and loss of motion.


The Anatomy of Your Knees

Your knees has four main ligaments:

  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)
  • Medial collateral ligament (MCL)
  • Lateral cruciate ligament (LCL)
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)

These four ligaments help stabilize the knee joint along with your medial and lateral menisci. The menisci are rubbery fibrocartilages in between the joints; if you tear one, it’s called a meniscus tear. Any number of twisting motions or strains can injure this infrastructure.


Your knee joint is a complex and powerful joint—the largest in your body. A knee injury can cause you a lifetime of pain and suffering if not corrected. Millions of Americans visit emergency rooms with physical knee injuries every year. And even more complain of chronic or persistent knee pain as they age or recover from knee injuries.

The reason so many knees have issues is that they are major weight-bearing joints. Your knees not only allow you to move, walk, stand, jump and run; they also provide stability. Pain or joint disease to one or both knees could debilitate you, forcing you to rely on crutches or even a wheelchair. But stem cell therapy for your knees can help repair your damaged joint while allowing you to avoid surgery.

Types of Knee Injuries

Since your knees have so many moving parts, injury or disease that affects any one of them causes a loss of functionality. Whether it occurs in the form of trauma, disease, or age-related degeneration, knee injuries and ailments are painful. The most common problems associated with the knee pain involve ligaments or cartilage.

In addition to injuries like a meniscus tear, a PCL sprain or tear, and hamstring tendinopathy, a vast number of people suffer from joint disease or the pain from normal wear and tear that comes with age. These conditions include organic diseases like arthritis, patellofemoral syndrome, bursitis, or Baker’s cyst.(link)


There are 4 kind of Mesenchymal stem cell


If you are one of the millions of people suffering from knee pain due to arthritis, patellofemoral syndrome, chondomalacia, pes anersine bursitis, Baker’s cyst, patellar tendonitis, meniscus tear, or ligament damage, total knee replacement surgery doesn’t have to be your only treatment option. The rapidly evolving field of Stem Cell therapy uses mesenchymal stem cells, derived from the umbilical cord of American newborn babies. The stem cells immediately frozen then scientifically counted and separated to begin the journey to heal your body. Regenerative medicine has an 80-85% success rate in treating joint disorders and injuries.



The traditional surgical treatments have been Arthroscopic Knee Surgery or total knee replacement. Knee surgery carries multiple risks and a long recovery time. They are also expensive and require time away from work and the ones you love.

Regenerative therapy has been proven as a safe and effective way to address knee pain and injuries. Stem cell therapy allows your body to heal naturally by injecting mesenchymal stem cells into the problem area. The stem cells begin to transform into the type of cells you need such as: bone, ligament, cartilage, or soft tissue. The technology has progressed and become increasingly popular and mainstream, so that now you should strongly consider stem cell therapy instead of total knee replacement.


Stem Cells and Knee Injury

Stem Cells and Knee Injury

Mesenchymal stem cells are injected into your knee at the source of your pain. There, they differentiate into the required cells to repair the damage or injury. Stem cells encourage new cell growth and fight inflammation. Much of the research done for Regenerative Medicine has shown that stem cell therapy has a positive outcome for degenerative diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis.

Recently, the top hospitals, such as the Mayo Clinic, have concluded that stem cell therapy is a safe option for improving not only your injured knee, but the opposite one as well. Instead replacing your knee joint with metal, stem cell therapy lets you keep your own bone and tissue. It is the ultimate way to heal your body naturally with as high as an expected 80-85% success rate.
