The Use of Unloading Knee Braces in Conjunction with Knee
Injections (Particularly Stem Cell/ Regenerative Medicine

The widespread application of stem cell therapy across the country could​
be considered somewhat "new territory" for the field of healthcare.​
Phenomenal results are being achieved daily in many areas of regenerative​
therapy--treating a variety of physical conditions. A now common use of​
regenerative therapy is treatment of osteoarthritic or degenerated joints.

Many clinicians are finding that the high success rate of a stem cell injection​
into a joint can be even further improved by several factors--including, but​
not limited to--the type of cells being used, the age of the cells being used,​
using ultrasound guidance to ensure correct placement and unloading the​
joint immediately following the injection with a brace to ensure proper​
healing and support.
There are several reasons a clinician would opt to unload a recently​
injected joint with a brace. The main reasons stated by clinicians are:

1. To return the joint to it's proper position during the healing process,​
ensuring the joint heals correctly.

2. To open up the degenerated compartment of the joint, thus making​
space for the regeneration of tissue to occur and allowing the cells to​
migrate to the correct location.

3. To keep excessive pressure and excessive inflammation away from​
the joint.

Inflammation is necessary for the healing process to occur. By keeping​
the pressure and any possible excessive inflammation away from the​
joint, the brace will be creating an optimum environment for the stem​
cells to be effective.
Dr. David Morris D.C. talks about​
why his prescribers use an​
unloading knee brace after every​
knee injection.
How the unloading hinge on these​
kinds of braces is adjusted to​
unload the medial OR lateral​
compartment with the same brace.
