Understanding the Comprehensive Approach to Knee Treatment at Osteopathic Center

Ever wondered why some knee treatments work wonders while others fall short? At the Osteopathic Center, we often receive calls from patients puzzled about the varying costs and effectiveness of knee treatments. Let’s dive into why our approach, though pricier, offers superior, long-lasting relief

Understanding the type of injury is the first step toward effective treatment.
Knee injuries are all too common, affecting athletes and non-athletes alike. They can be debilitating, hindering your ability to perform everyday tasks and enjoy your favorite activities. At The Osteopathic Center, we focus on holistic and effective treatments to help you recover from knee injuries and get back on your feet. Let’s delve into the types of knee injuries, their symptoms, and how we can help YOU.
ACL Injuries
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is crucial for knee stability. Injuries to the ACL often occur during sports that involve sudden stops, jumps, or changes in direction. Symptoms include a loud pop, severe pain, rapid swelling, and a feeling of instability in the knee.\
Meniscus Tears
The meniscus acts as a shock absorber between your thigh and shin bones. Tears can happen during activities that cause you to twist or rotate your knee, especially when putting your full weight on it. Symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness, and difficulty moving your knee.

Patellar Tendinitis
Also known as “jumper’s knee,” this injury involves inflammation of the patellar tendon, which connects the kneecap to the shinbone. It’s common in athletes involved in jumping sports. Symptoms include pain and tenderness around the kneecap and possible swelling.
MCL Injuries
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) runs along the inner part of the knee and helps stabilize it. MCL injuries often result from a direct blow to the outside of the knee. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and a feeling of instability or looseness in the knee.

Symptoms of Knee Injuries
Recognizing the symptoms of knee injuries is crucial for early diagnosis and treatment. Common symptoms include:
Pain, which may vary in intensity depending on the severity of the injury

  • Swelling and stiffness around the knee
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Instability or the feeling that your knee might give way
  • Popping or crunching noises

Treatment Options at The Osteopathic Center
At The Osteopathic Center, we offer a variety of treatments tailored to your specific injury and needs. Using our patented Prolograft® technique, we provide injections with Ortho biologics, including Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, patient- or donor-derived allografts, and growth factors. We also offer Prolotherapy, Prolozone, and Hyaluronic Acid treatments. These therapies harness your body’s natural healing abilities to accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and repair damaged tissues.
The Common Question: Why Are Your Prices Higher?
When patients call us after getting their knee evaluated elsewhere, they’re often confused about the cost difference. Here’s the scoop: not all treatments are created equal. When you’re told, “This is the treatment, and this is the cost,” it often overlooks the depth and precision we provide.

Here are the key factors that set our treatments apart:
Personalized and Detailed Diagnosis
Before starting treatment, we conduct thorough evaluations using MRIs, ultrasounds, and physical exams. This detailed understanding of your knee’s condition allows us to craft a personalized treatment plan. Unlike generic approaches, we address your specific problems and work to prevent further issues.
Quality PRP and Injectables
At the Osteopathic Center, we prioritize quality above all else. Our top-of-the-line double-spin PRP system ensures highly concentrated and effective Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), promoting superior healing. Beyond PRP, we offer various injectable treatments, all maintained with rigorous quality control to provide the most effective treatment possible.
Multiple Injection Sites
Effective knee treatment often requires more than just one or two injections. We inject it into 10 to 15 specific areas, targeting each ligament and tendon. This comprehensive approach ensures the healing agents reach precisely where they’re needed, unlike other clinics that might only offer single joint injections or trigger point injections.
Precision Through Ultrasound and/or Fluoroscopy Guidance
Our treatments are conducted under ultrasound and/or fluoroscopy guidance, allowing us to place the needle with pinpoint accuracy. This ensures the treatment is as effective as possible, directly targeting the injury.
Long-Term Solutions, Not Temporary Fixes
Our goal isn’t to see you every few months. With the right treatment done correctly the first time, you shouldn’t need frequent follow-ups. We aim for lasting solutions, not temporary fixes.

FAQs
1. How often will I need treatment?
Depending on the injury and treatment option, for the best results we start with a comprehensive initial treatment targeting all structures with stronger injectables, followed by 2 sessions of PRP or Prolotherapy.
2. What conditions can you treat?
We treat various knee conditions including ligament injuries, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, and more. Each treatment plan is customized based on your specific needs.
3. Do you offer stem cells?
Yes, but the term “stem cells” is broad. We provide patient-derived MSCs from bone marrow and adipose (fat) grafting, as well as donor-derived allografts and growth factors from adipose or placental tissue.
4. Is physical therapy necessary after the treatment?
Yes, physical therapy is essential for restoring strength, improving mobility, and eliminating compensatory factors.
