What Causes Knee Pain
And Why Treat It
Does your knee hurt when you try to bend it? Are you finding it really painful to walk or crouch or sit down on the floor?
Of all the joints in the human body, the knees bear the brunt of the beating that the body experiences. Your knees hold up the weight of the entire body and are instrumental in supporting and stabilizing you as you use your legs. At CellSpark we provide a Las Vegas stem cell therapy for knee pain.
Overworking your knees results in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments wearing down or tearing. The condition is made worse if you’re overweight. These tears and injuries can then cause significant knee pain and reduce the quality of your life.
Common Causes Of
Normally, knee pain occurs due to:
- Accidents & injuries
- Extensive wear & tear due to sports or your profession
- Cancer in the knee
- ITB syndrome
- Radiating pain due to a hip/foot injury
- Excessive weight and its pressure on the knees

Stem Cell Therapy
For Knee Pain
Stem cells are extremely powerful and perfectly suited to treat injured knee muscles and cartilages. These cells are undifferentiated cells and this makes them a much more useful treatment tool than any medication or surgery.
We can say that stem cells are to the body, what tofu is to food. Just like tofu takes on the flavor of the food it is mixed with, stem cells take on the shape, form, and function of the cells in the body, where they are injected. When you inject stem cells into or around your knee, they mimic the appearance and capabilities of the knee cells. They essentially transform into knee cells.
The stem cells then replace the old and damaged knee cells, regenerating as a new knee tissue or cartilage, which offers greater structural support, stability, and strength to the knee. Now it becomes easier for your body to support its weight and also indulge in physical activity.
CellSpark Regenerative Centers’ Powerful
Stem Cell Therapy
Before the procedure, our staff evaluates your medical history to understand more about your health. We then identify the areas of the knee that require injection. You are given a local numbing agent before the injection is provided. Next, a syringe filled with stem cells is injected into your knee and around it.
Our team at CellSpark Regenerative Centers harvest embryonic stem cells from the umbilical cords of newborns. These cells are the foundation on which the human fetus is developed. They are the ones that later become the various organs in the fetus. In the stem cell therapy for knee pain, these embryonic stem cells have a greater capacity to transform into knee cartilage, ligament, or bone, compared to adult stem cells.
Once injected, the stem cells regenerate as specialized knee cells and replace the old, injured knee cells. Over the span of the next two months, you will experience lesser knee pain, your knee will start to feel stronger and more flexible. You will also find tasks like walking and standing, much easier.
Taking Care Of
Your Knee Post-Procedure
The downtime is very minimal in stem cell therapy. Some patients return to their normal routine the same day as the procedure. You are asked to be gentle on your knees and not overstrain your knee for the first few weeks. This gives the stem cells enough time to regenerate into new tissue and settle into place.
Typically we don’t call our patients for a second Las Vegas stem cell therapy for knee pain session and you may be asked to visit our Henderson, Nevada stem cell therapy clinic only for a post-treatment check-up.
You may also be advised to receive physiotherapy to further strengthen your knee. Contact us for more information.
