Osteoarthritis is characterized by the breakdown of cartilage. As the cartilage in joints of the body deteriorates, bones begin to rub against one another. This can cause pain and stiffness that make joint movement difficult. Osteoarthritis can also result in damage to ligaments, menisci, and muscles. There are two types of Osteoarthritis – primary and secondary. Primary osteoarthritis is generally associated with the aging process and is simply the “wears and tears” one endures throughout life. As you become older, the more likely you are to have some degree of primary Osteoarthritis; however, this does not mean Osteoarthritis must be a normal aspect of aging. Secondary Osteoarthritis tends to develop relatively early in life, typically 10 or more years after a specific cause, such as an injury.
Osteoarthritis most often occurs in knees, hips, and hands. Other joints, like the shoulders, can also be affected. Osteoarthritis rarely affects other joints but can as a result of injury or struggles with obesity. The pain and stiffness of osteoarthritis can make it difficult to do daily activities and exercises. In the early stages of Osteoarthritis, damage begins to affect the cartilage that covers the joint surfaces of the body and is limited to a small area. Osteoarthritis is considered a progressive disease where over time, bone density surrounding the joint increases solidifying a diagnosis. In the late stages of Osteoarthritis, the joint cartilage in the affected area is not only diseased and damaged, but completely worn away. Without that protective plush covering, adjoining bones rub directly against each other causing severe pain, swelling, and stiffness.
Osteoarthritis treatments today focus mainly to relieve symptoms. There is currently no cure for Osteoarthritis but many treatments and therapies are available to maintain joint movement, control pain, and relieve stiffness. Medications such as acetaminophen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and narcotics are commonly used to relieve a variety of symptoms. Topical pain relievers are also often prescribed to fight discomfort of diseased joints. Surgery, including joint replacement, may be a considered option for severely damaged joints. Assistive devices, physical therapy, occupational therapy, weight loss, nutritional supplements, and meditation are other approaches offered to help manage the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Stem cell treatment for Osteoarthritis is a new alternative way to help manage the symptoms of Osteoarthritis. Research in the advancement of Regenerative Medicine therapy has shown that restoration of these damaged cells through this treatment is possible. The undifferentiated cells heal the body by replacing ones plagued with disease, regenerating new cells, and suppressing the immune system’s macrophage response which engulfs and digests the dying cells. Results of several early clinical studies of stem cell treatment for Osteoarthritis have shown promising results. This breakthrough in regenerative medicine shines a light of hope on those battling this degenerative disease.
