Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects the joints. In a normal joint, there is a layer of cartilage covering the ends of the bones. Osteoarthritis, or OA, as it is can be more commonly known, breaks down that layer of cartilage and leaves the bones unprotected. This is a painful and slow moving process and OA sufferers often deal with the symptoms for months or even years. Osteoarthritis knee pain is especially common for those who play high impact sports, our knees absorb these injuries and the cartilage wears down over time.
Common treatment for Osteoarthritis pain is usually to medicate with simple pain relief such as Paracetamol along with a suitable exercise regime. This is a short term measure and will reduce your pain somewhat, but it won’t solve the problem long term. While there is no current cure for Osteoarthritis, Stem Cell Therapy is making giant leaps and bounds towards further Osteoarthritis treatments. Stem Cell therapy is an intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into the damaged tissue in order to repair. These cells divide themselves and form new cells, meaning that the cartilage that the stem cells are helping has the chance to heal itself. The treatment of Osteoarthritis with stem cell therapy is changing the face of the disease itself and it’s sufferers are being able to slowly return to their normal lives prior to the development of OA.
Stem Cells are now able to be grown artificially in order to suit the different ailments that the stem cells are treating. This means that we are staring into a future where the average Osteoarthritis pain sufferer could be cured of the ailment completely. In order to find what best suits your current stage of OA there are numerous contacts for medical practitioners that are now using Stem Cell Therapy to help their patients. Over a 3-4 year period of medical testing the results are showing that the complications are minimal and the relief for sufferers is palpable. We are finally at the forefront of a medical discovery that can treat chronic pain like Osteoarthritis.
