Stem cell injections are in increasingly popular demand around Australia, and indeed the world. With an aging population, we are always at the risk of diseases such as arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis. A degenerative autoimmune disease that attacks the cartilage at the joints where two or more bones meet. This cartilage is there to protect the bones from breakage and damage, however the older we get, the more high impact sport we do and the less precautionary measures we take against injury, this cartilage is at risk, especially around the knee area.
Up until now there has not been a cure for any of the ailments that are covered under the ‘Arthritis’ blanket. People living with this painful disease were subjected to either painful and invasive surgeries or pat on the head and sent home with a box of Paracetamol. This wasn’t cutting it. Stem cell procedures are at the forefront of developing the medical treatment technology to stop sufferers of arthritis from having to deal with daily pain and stiffness. The procedure of injecting new, or ‘adult’ cells into the damaged tissue and helping the cartilage to repair itself means that suddenly patients are able to live happy normal lives once again.
The most common form of stem cell procedure is the bone-marrow transplantation, used in the fight against cancers like Leukemia. The technology is the same, however, rather than using artificially grown stem cells, or a donor’s stem cells. These cells are taken from the patient’s own body and used in a stem cell injection into the damaged tissue.
While bone-marrow transplantation of stem cells paved the way, cancer isn’t the only disease that stem cells are helping to fight back against. Scientists and medical practitioners the world over are anticipating that these stem cell procedures will lead the way in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s
