The Natural Advantage: Q & A

“Dear Dr. Gordon, Can you help me with my knee pain? I’ve been having arthritis trouble for years and my doctor told me I’ll eventually need a knee replacement. I really want to avoid that, what can I do?” — Charlie M.

Dear Charlie,

I’m very familiar with treating pain like yours. It seems that you’re one of more than 50 million adults in the United States who are affected with this problem. Many people who seek naturopathic care have already tried conservative treatments for their pain such as Ibuprofen, steroid shots, lifestyle changes, and physical therapy. Often times, these treatments bring temporary relief, but when the arthritis progresses, the pain usually comes back.

You might want to consider looking into regenerative medicine therapies like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Stem Cell therapy for your knee pain. These treatments offer long-term relief and excellent outcomes in a natural manner. PRP uses your own blood to stimulate regeneration. Just like after you cut yourself, the blood, which contains growth factors, starts the healing process. The treatment works by injecting the PRP into the area of pain to stimulate repair. Another fabulous option for knee pain is Wharton’s Jelly Stem Cell therapy. This therapy is the newest frontier in regenerative medicine. These potent, young cells are known for their ability to reduce inflammation and stimulate repair, especially in the knee where they can boost cartilage regeneration. This process also involves an injection to promote healing that lasts.

If you have any questions about PRP or Stem Cells, pick up the phone and call Natural Health Works today to set up your free 15 minute phone consultation. We’d love to hear from you!
