Knee Pain Q & A

What is knee pain?

Knee pain can make the simplest tasks, such as walking, getting out of a car, or going up and down stairs, excruciatingly painful. Your knee is your largest joint, and if knee components get injured or damaged, the result is often a loss of full function and pain.

Knee pain is any type of discomfort that can appear as:

  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Instability
  • Weakness
  • Loss of function
  • Redness
  • Warmth to the touch
  • Severe or mild pain
  • Popping or crunching noises
  • Inability to fully straighten your knee

The signs and symptoms of knee pain vary from person to person. If something isn’t quite right with one or both of your knees, schedule an evaluation at Regenerative Solutions of NJ.

What causes knee pain?

Numerous health conditions or injuries can cause pain in your knee. Examples include:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries
  • Torn meniscus
  • Kneecap dislocation
  • Other sports or overuse injuries
  • Fractures
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bursitis and tendonitis
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS)
  • A Baker’s cyst

Patellofemoral pain syndrome, which is common in athletes, refers to pain between your kneecap and thighbone, or femur.

Dr. Spiel at Regenerative Solutions of NJ examines your knee, reviews your symptoms and medical history, and may order lab or imaging tests to diagnose the cause of knee pain. He then formulates an integrative and regenerative medicine treatment plan to resolve your knee pain.

What is the treatment for knee pain?

Dr. Spiel lets you know which knee pain treatment best matches your needs. He might recommend:

  • A brace
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Steroid injections
  • Joint lubricant injections
  • Partial or total knee replacement 
  • Physical therapy
  • Stem cell-based therapies
  • Exosomes
  • Shockwave/acoustic wave therapy (EPAT)

Dr. Spiel injects quality stem cell-based products or exosomes into your knee joint to enhance healing and ease pain naturally, without pain medications or expensive surgery.
