What Causes Knee Pain?

Continuous and chronic knee pain can significantly disrupt your daily activities. Once effortless tasks, such as gardening, walking your dog, or even standing for extended periods, can now pose challenges.

The underlying reasons for knee pain typically fall into three categories:

Reason #1

Degenerative Changes

As we age, our joints experience wear and tear, leading to chronic ailments such as arthritis, tendonitis, and articular cartilage deterioration. Left untreated, these conditions can worsen over time.

Reason #2

Overuse Strain

Commonly observed in athletes and individuals engaged in repetitive physical tasks, overuse strain can trigger various forms of inflammation, including bursitis.

Reason #3

Traumatic Injury

Injuries such as meniscus tears, ligament sprains, and cartilage damage are frequent outcomes of knee trauma. These injuries can result in significant daily discomfort and necessitate prompt attention.

Dr. Bruce Fishman Provides Insight into Understanding Knee Pain and Treatment Options

The complexities of knee pain are rooted in various factors influencing its intricate joint structure. Dr. Fishman, also known as Dr. Stem Cell, sheds light on the causes and mechanisms of knee discomfort and provides guidance on treatment strategies.

What Kind Of Knee Pain Can Benefit From Cellular Therapy?

Experiencing knee pain often accompanies various other symptoms stemming from the underlying condition, including knee instability, limited motion, inflammation, tenderness, and difficulty walking.

At the Stem Cell Institute of Los Angeles, our team provides cellular therapy to alleviate symptoms associated with numerous knee conditions, such as:

  • Osteoarthritis: This condition primarily affects weight-bearing joints like the knees. It results from the breakdown of cartilage due to repetitive movements, leading to bone-on-bone friction during motion.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: This autoimmune disorder initially targets small joints but can progress to affect larger joints like the knees, causing inflammation and pain as the immune system attacks the synovial tissues.

Patellar tendinitis arises from inflammation of the patellar tendon, commonly occurring due to activities involving jumping or kneeling, resulting in knee pain and discomfort.

This syndrome manifests as anterior knee pain and discomfort around the kneecap due to repetitive stress, muscle imbalances, and injuries.

How Do Cellular And Acellular Therapies Provide Relief From Knee Pain?

Cellular Biologics are distributed throughout the body and are ready to respond when injury occurs. These cells migrate to damaged areas and undertake various tasks: they facilitate tissue regeneration to repair the injury, modulate inflammation, and release biochemicals like nanovesicles and cytokines, which promote healing.

In cell-based therapy, a concentrated dosage of cellular components is injected directly into the affected tissues of the knee. This targeted delivery mechanism offers relief from knee pain by:

  • Reducing inflammation:

The injected cells help quell inflammation in the knee joint, alleviating discomfort.

  • Stimulating tissue healing:

They signal the injured tissues to begin healing, fostering repair and regeneration.

Why Is Cellular Therapy A Preferred Treatment Over Joint Replacement Surgery?


Cellular therapy involves injections, avoiding the need for invasive surgical procedures.

Reduced Risk

Cellular therapy carries lower risks with no incisions or anesthesia than surgery.

Faster Recovery

Patients often experience shorter recovery times with cellular therapy, allowing a quicker return to normal activities.

Preservation of Natural Tissue

Cellular therapy promotes tissue regeneration and repair, preserving the integrity of natural structures in the hip joint.

Potential for Long-Term Relief

Cellular therapy offers the potential for long-lasting pain relief compared to surgical interventions by addressing underlying causes and promoting healing.

Hi - I want to leave this review because this facility has one of the most informative, intelligent, kind, and helpful staff by name of Amanda. Amanda is a gem. She spent a lot of time explaining the benefits of the treatments that I was seeking, but also was so HONEST and CONSIDERATE that stated that due to my medical condition, I should not yet seek the desired treatment they office at their facility. Amanda was not only kind, concern, and honest and spoke with much integrity about how I am vulnerable to receive the treatment, but also she offered many many other alternatives that are available and could be helpful. She honestly took such a long time to explain several options, which some did not even was something they offered, but due to my medical condition could be simple and very useful. I may not be able to use their services now and hopefully later, but I am sure going to refer this facility to anyone who is looking to get stem cell treatment.

Amanda was the best!! So was the doctor and physical therapy post stem cells treatment. Very knowledgeable, professional and helpful with all questions pre, during and post—would highly recommend 10 stars if we could. 5th floor kind of across the street and close to amazon fresh/cvs off Ventura in a high rise. Thank you Dr. Fisherman and team!

My mother got a stem cell injection in her hip a few months before her 76th birthday instead of getting another hip replacement. She is so happy with the results and has been living pain free for the past 6+ months. She keeps telling everyone she knows about Dr. Fishman and Stem Cell Institute of Los Angeles and thinks the drive from Riverside County to Encino is worth every penny!

Our Comprehensive Cellular Therapy Process
for Knee Pain Relief

Discover how our dedicated team provides a holistic approach to relieving knee pain through our comprehensive cellular therapy process. Each step is meticulously designed to address your needs and promote optimal recovery.

Initial Consultation and Evaluation

Your journey into cellular therapy therapy begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Bruce Fishman. During this crucial meeting, Dr. Fishman will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays and potentially additional imaging, such as MRI or CT scans, to pinpoint the source of your pain. This comprehensive evaluation helps determine if you’re a suitable candidate for stem cell treatment.

Preparatory Treatment

Upon approval for cellular biologic therapy, you’ll undergo a preparatory process to optimize your body’s response to the treatment. Two days before your scheduled procedure, you’ll receive a unique IV infusion treatment containing essential vitamins, peptides, and proteins. This infusion enhances cellular function and prepares your body for the upcoming therapy.

Cellular Biologic Injection

Dr. Fishman will perform the cellular biologic injection procedure using advanced techniques such as fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance to target the damaged tissues causing your pain precisely. Depending on your condition,  cells may be combined with other biologics, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from a sample of your own blood, to accelerate healing and promote tissue repair. Following the procedure, you’ll undergo a second session of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment to enhance the healing process.

Post-Procedure Recovery and Follow-Up

Allowing your body time to rest and recover is essential after the cellular therapy procedure. Most patients experience improvements over the following months as your stem cells work to rebuild tissues and rehabilitate the injury. You’ll have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Fishman four weeks after the procedure for a check-up. If appropriate for your condition, you may receive your first FDA-approved muscle-building Emsculpt treatment at this time. Regular follow-up appointments at 3, 6, and 12 months will monitor your progress and ensure continued improvement.
