Knee injuries and chronic knee pain are a huge problem in the United States and worldwide. The Knee Replacement Alternative is one of the most “poorly designed” joints in our body and are very prone to serious injuries and debilitating wear and tear even under the best of circumstances. The knee is the joint where the bones of the upper leg and lower leg meet. The largest joint in the body, the knee moves like a hinge, allowing you to sit, squat, walk or
jump. When knee problems arise, they can interfere with almost all of your daily activities, and certainly can compromise your participation in more advanced activities or sports. Sports injuries at a younger age will predispose patients to arthritic changes (and the disability and pain that invariably accompanies this condition), and this will occur earlier in life than it would have otherwise.
Pain during activities and at rest
Limited range of motion with stiffness and swelling
Tenderness along the joint
A feeling the joint may “give out”
Deformity of the joint (knock-knees or bow-legs)
The most common causes of Knee Replacement Alternative are from sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, and over-use leading to arthritis. Also, many people are overweight, which significantly contributes to the unpleasant symptoms associated with knee arthritis. Your weight bearing joints include your ankles, knees and hips and these are not designed to carry any more than 20% over your ideal body weight. This is why 60% of Americans over the age of 60 have arthritis in their knees.
In 2007, there were 550,161 total Knee Replacement Alternative performed in the United States with mixed results (including complications), and that number is on the rise–particularly as the Baby Boomer population continues to age. The very high cost of a total knee replacement ($40,000), along with the prolonged hospital stay, pain, and recovery period, can be avoided with our treatments. Our success rate for our knee procedures is very high, and the procedure is associated with very little discomfort and rapid recovery periods. That is why the knees are the number one joint that people seek treatments for at Utah Stem Cells. Let Utah Stem Cells have the opportunity to restore the functionality and pain relief that you are seeking, whether it be to get back to your favorite sporting activity, or simply playing with your children or grandchildren.
