Exosome therapy is a relatively new regenerative medicine treatment for many purposes. One of them includes joint pain treatments. It uses elements of stem cells to revitalize the body.
These elements are called exosomes (extracellular vesicles or small structures within a cell) derived from human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs.)
They carry MSCs-released proteins such as DNA, mRNA, and others to enable the affected or treated cells to ‘communicate’ better.
This therapy is highly targeted and flexible for osteoarthritis (knee pain), musculoskeletal injuries, or other degenerative joint diseases.
Exosome therapy tackles the root problems of chronic joint pain and inflammation, not just the symptoms.
Exosome therapy involves injecting exosomes into the treatment area. The billions of exosomes then attach themselves to the target cells in the body, such as blood, brain, muscle, skeletal, and organ cells.
As soon as they attach themselves to the cells, they transfer and provide raw materials (proteins) and instructions (mRNA, miRNA, signaling cytokines) that tell them to regenerate and repair.
For an average osteoarthritis knee treatment , you’ll receive a concentration of about 1 billion extracellular vesicles. Those with more severe conditions can be given up to 15 billion extracellular vesicles during a treatment.
The doctor will prepare a customized treatment plan that includes the dosage needed to help you find relief from your symptoms and get optimal treatment results.
As time goes by and more research develops, there are reports of the benefits of exosome therapy for osteoarthritis knee treatment .
One key benefit of exosome therapy or is that it might be less risky than live stem cell transplants. Exosomes are unable to reproduce and cannot change into dangerous cell types, which explains why.
Below are more benefits linked to this type of musculoskeletal treatment procedure:
When harmful antigens such as bacterial infections, environmental chemicals, or pollen try to attack our immune system, our body will turn to inflammation to fight them off. However, long-term inflammation leads to DNA damage, tissue death, and internal scarring.
So, the injected exosomes function by rapidly stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms, promoting faster recovery and local tissue repair.
Chronic pain can negatively impact daily life. A decreased inflammation effectively reduces the chronic pain signals delivered to the brain, resulting in less overall pain.
Among other things, tissue death is connected to the aging process. Exosomes successfully stop tissue degeneration by telling the tissue cells to regenerate, leading to the development of new tissue and general healthy cell regeneration.
An immune system that is compromised is far more vulnerable to infection. Exosome therapy gives cells the cellular resources they need to renew themselves, make repairs, and maintain their health.
In turn, healthy cells strengthen the body’s general defense mechanisms, making it more difficult for infection to take hold.
This osteoarthritis knee treatment therapy is highly impressive. It motivates whole body rejuvenation that leads to reversing the effects of aging. However, it can also treat certain concerns, including:
Basically, Exosome therapy is a type of interventional chronic pain treatment and management program.
A patient’s body could reject the administered exosomes. However, it’s unlikely to occur since exosomes aren’t cells or tissues.
Our body doesn’t have the same response similar to a foreign substance. Nevertheless, here are some precautions to note while carrying out this osteoarthritis knee treatment:
If the chosen exosomes aren’t correctly extracted and sterilized, they can carry potentially harmful genetic materials from the MSCs’ origin.
It can result in growths or abnormal development of cells at the target site or other areas in the body.
If the therapy preparation has fewer exosomes, it might produce below-par results because insufficient cells are targeted.
Bacteria can escape into the final therapy preparation due to improper extraction methods or incomplete sterilization of the exosomes.
Hence, it’s necessary to seek a qualified and trusted exosome therapy clinic to ensure safe treatment.
This natural type of musculoskeletal treatment is safer than using an over-the-counter medication to hide your joint pain.
This osteoarthritis knee treatment is an outpatient treatment. You’re free to resume your daily activities once you’ve finished your session. There’s no downtime or recovery period for osteoarthritis knee treatment and other joint pain treatments.
However, you need to follow some aftercare instructions to ensure the best outcome possible:
The cost for this safe breakthrough therapy starts from RM6,000 per session. The price for Exosome treatment (number of sessions needed) is based on the customer’s health condition (affected area) and the doctor’s skills and experience.
Patients are advised to look for an authorized treatment provider before administering any injection or substances into their bodies.
Our fully trained, certified doctors in medical and aesthetic cases will examine and diagnose your medical condition before recommending any treatment that suits you the best.
Joint pain and other musculoskeletal health issues are debilitating but can be managed well or healed over time if proper measures are taken.
There are many joint pain treatments available on the market. At Premier Clinic, our team of highly qualified and experienced doctors adheres to strict product quality and sterility requirements in exosome therapy.

The therapy is absolutely risk-free. There is no evidence to support long-term adverse side effects of this therapy, according to numerous clinical trials that have investigated its effects.
Furthermore, whatever the issues you seek treatment for, scientific studies have demonstrated that this therapy improves general health.
Once you experience relapse or recurring problems, you should go for a follow-up treatment. Most people book appointments for biannual therapies for optimized musculoskeletal treatment and maintenance.
In your first consultation, our doctor will advise you on how long one treatment result will last, based on your health and concerns.
Your treated areas will improve within approximately 14 days. After the treatment, you can expect the cells to provide an immediate reaction that can last up to 24 hours.
Then, it’ll take about 6 to 8 weeks for the exosomes to activate and reprogram the older cells.
