Non-surgical, single-session knee calcification (bone rubbing – fluid loss – abrasion – cartilage loss) treatment

Knee calcification; It is the deterioration of the cartilage tissue of the knee joint, which causes deterioration in the intra-articular tissues, the soft tissues around the joint and the bone tissue under the cartilage. Intra-articular cartilage tissue loss usually starts in the inner half of the knee and then affects the patellofemoral joint and finally affects the outer half of the knee. Due to the destruction of the cartilage in the joint, deterioration of the intra-articular fluid (dead cartilage, synovial debris, chemical harmful substances, etc.) occurs and the quality of the joint fluid deteriorates.

As the disease progresses, the pain increases, the soft tissues around the joint (especially the inner half and the back of the joint) are damaged and become hard, intense hardening and anemia of the bone under the cartilage occurs especially in the knee cap and the inner half of the joint. The bony protrusions formed in the kneecap and inner half of the joint restrict the movement of the kneecap joint, and patients have difficulty in bending the knee. Rest and night pains occur due to deterioration and anemia of the joint, especially in the bone tissue and surrounding soft tissues.

The patients have difficulty in walking due to the dysfunction of the joint, the muscles of the knee joint weaken, so the body weight comes to the joint more, the disease progresses rapidly. Baker’s cysts form behind the joint.

Knee calcification; It is a disease of middle and advanced age, and it mostly affects women. It is very common. Many patients refer to doctors repeatedly for this ailment. Applied; Drug treatments, cartilage tablets, knee pads, physical therapy, various intra-articular injections provide a short-term (a few months) reduction in pain, but they cannot stop the progression of the disease. Applied surgical treatments; Arthroscopic surgeries provide short-term relief, but contribute to the progression of the disease.

Bone cutting surgery is not preferred because it creates many negative effects in elderly patients. Knee prostheses; They frighten patients because of the serious risks they carry and their limited duration of use. Especially many patients do not want surgical treatment.

Because of all these reasons; Most of the knee osteoarthritis patients avoid surgery and do not get satisfactory results from other treatments, and suffer helplessly from pain.

In addition, there are many knee calcification patients who are older or whose general body health (cancer patients, heart patients, etc.) is impaired, and there is no question of any surgery. When we look at all these, there is a serious group of helpless patients and they want a solution that does not bother them.

The biological treatments we apply for this ailment, with its promising results, are the application that gives results in modern medicine, other than surgery for this ailment. In these applications; Results are obtained with various applications, especially the natural healing properties of tissues and the use of stem cells.
