The term osteoarthritis typically indicates any destruction of cartilage that covers the bone ends and allows for the joint ends to glide easily and seamlessly. As the cartilage becomes damaged, it is normal for friction to start taking place, which further leads to severe bouts of pain and further deterioration in the cartilage. With time, it can trigger severe arthritis once the bones start rubbing against each other.
Osteoarthritis in knee and hips is rather common as you age. However, a family ancestry of the illness or past damage can additionally increase your risk.
The treatment options available for osteoarthritis have revolutionized over time. The latest, most effective means of treating this condition is the stem cell therapy. Stem cells possess the ability to rejuvenate and repair body tissues transforming into a range of cells that rebuild new tissues and produce specific mediators.
In order to treat osteoarthritis, highly concentrated stem cells (mesenchymal) are injected into the joint. These cells transform into cells that produce cartilage to cover the bone. In the long run, this particular treatment option reduces joint swelling, pain and brings an end to the inflammatory process.
The results of this particular treatment tend to vary from patient to patient. Basic results can be seen within 3 months, but it can take up to 9 months for optimal results to show. In some cases, further treatment options are advised as well. In terms of the side-effects of stem cell treatment, these are negligible and include minor bruising and swelling.
