Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis which occurs when the protective cartilage which cushions the joints wears down. As the cartilage wears away, bones rub against one another, resulting in discomfort and stiffness. OA can also cause damage to the ligaments, menisci, and muscles. It’s estimated that millions of people worldwide experience the condition.
There are two types of OA: primary and secondary. Primary OA is linked to aging and is attributed to the natural “wear and tear” the body experiences over time. Secondary OA, on the other hand, can develop earlier in life, and may appear 10 or more years after an injury or other specific cause.
Joint pain in the hands, neck, hips, and knees are some of the most common symptoms, but other joints can be affected as well. The pain and stiffness associated with the condition can make daily activities challenging. OA is progressive, and as such, joint cartilage becomes diseased, damaged, and ultimately, completely worn away over time. Without the coverage between joints, adjoining bones rub together and can cause severe pain, swelling, and stiffness.
Because there is no cure for OA, the main focus of treatment is to relieve symptoms. There are many therapies available to minimize pain, promote joint movement, and alleviate stiffness. Both over-the-counter and prescription drugs can be used to reduce inflammation and control discomfort. Topical pain relief, physical therapy, supplements, and assistive devices are widely used as well. In the case of severely damaged joints, surgical intervention may also be recommended.
For chronic, progressive conditions such as OA, Regenerative Medicine therapy can help to manage symptoms. Stem cell therapy, in particular, is a new alternative treatment which shows great potential for reducing the effects of further damage and controlling symptoms. Stem cells have the ability to replace countless cells within the body, including those damaged by disease. These undifferentiated cells prompt healing by helping the body’s natural repair kit work more effectively, regenerating new cells, and suppressing the immune system’s response which digests dying cells. Most notably, stem cells have been shown to promote the regeneration of cartilage to reduce pain and improve joint function.
Degenerative diseases don’t have to be debilitating. Regenerative Medicine therapy is a breakthrough treatment which offers new hope to individuals with conditions like OA.
Although Regenerative Medicine isn’t a cure-all, it can improve the quality of life for patients with chronic conditions. This is especially true for individuals who have not responded to traditional therapies, or anyone who may wish to explore alternatives to invasive surgery. By supporting the healing process at a cellular level, patients can pursue their journey towards a more pain-free way of life.
