Knee pain is a condition that can arise for a number of reasons and can affect your ability to exercise, walk, or even stand. For all of your knee pain treatments, you can rely on Southeastern Interventional Pain Associates for quality and professionalism. We offer knee pain treatments to men and women living in Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, and Atlanta.
What is Knee Arthritis?
The most common cause of knee pain is arthritis. Arthritis can come in many forms, but it can interfere with the ability to do normal activities regardless of its form. Even though there is no cure for arthritis, there are many treatment options available to help patients manage their pain and live a normal, active life. We offer a number of treatments to help patients overcome knee pain caused by arthritis. If your knee pain is caused by other factors such as injury or strain, you may be a good candidate for the treatments below.
Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain
Stem cell therapy is a newer technique that uses the unique healing advantages of stem cells to promote healing in an injured area. These “blank” cells have the ability to develop into any type of cell necessary to help the body heal. To begin treatment, stem cells are gathered via blood and bone marrow samples. These cells are then injected directly into the injury site, where they immediately begin to heal the body. This technique can help heal bone, tendons, ligaments, tissue, and cartilage.
PRP Therapy for Knee Pain
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy offers a revolutionary way to relieve pain. Platelets, which are packed with growth and healing factors, initiate repair while attracting the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP therapy intensifies the body’s ability to heal by delivering a higher concentration of platelets. To begin treatment, we draw a small sample of your blood (similar to a lab test sample), and place it in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds. This separates the platelets from other components. We then inject the concentrated, platelet-rich plasma into and around the point of injury, which jump-starts and significantly improves your body’s ability to heal. Since we use your own blood, there is no risk of transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy are effective solutions for knee pain related to:
- Patellar Tendinitis
- Patellar Femoral Syndrome

Knee pain can be debilitating, but it is not untreatable.
