MRI and Knee Pain

Knee pain can be located on the inside (medial) or outside aspect of the joint (lateral).

Common causes of lateral knee pain include meniscal damage, cartilage defects or injury to the lateral collateral ligament.

Accurate diagnosis requires a thorough history and physical examination along with a review of the MRI.   Dependence solely upon MRI studies puts a patient at risk for mis-diagnosis and treatment failure.  At Centeno-Schultz Clinic and Regenerative Sciences this is the standard of care.  Please review a recent patient case report.  Try to identify the source of pain.

Patient underwent Regenexx procedure on the other knee.  After injection of autologous mesenchymal stem cells he had reduction in pain, improved meniscal structure and reduction in  bone swelling.
