12 Oct Stem Cell Therapy – What are the Different Options for my Joints?
Cutting edge treatment with stem cell therapy can offer a solution for Osteoarthritis or OA. The treatment consists of removing the stem cell blood in the patient’s bone marrow from the hip area along with the plasma. The remaining fluid is then concentrated in a centrifuge and this is injected into the joint experiencing problems. As the concoction injected is taken from the patient’s own body, there is little chance of the body rejecting it.
There are many conventional treatments available for joint pains, but stem cell therapy offers exciting promise. Several non surgical options only offer short term or temporary relief from joint pain and the pain usually returns and it can even get worse in some cases. On the other hand, stem cells are cells possess the ability of developing into various types of cells that the body can make use of, for instance, new cartilage. When an abundance of stem cells are placed in an area that is deficient, there is a chance for healthy cells to grow in that location. It is easy to regenerate and repair cartilage and tendons with the stem cells harvested from the body of the patient.
Relief for Osteoarthritis
Those suffering from osteoarthritis experience a wear and tear of the joints. The problem is due to the deterioration of the cartilage that allows cushioning of the bones, so that they can glide smoothly over one another. When the cartilage breaks down, the bones start rubbing against each other, leading to stiffness and inflammation, and, thus, pain. Stem cells that are bone derived can be distributed to the area and it has the potential to result in regeneration of healthy cartilage.
Minimal Side Effects
Even the side effects are only temporary and are localized, as the patient might merely experience minor pain that lasts for a few days and they can get back to their normal activities within a short time. It can, therefore, be an ideal solution for those who have no other option than joint replacement therapy, as a major surgery can be averted. It offers a viable option to knee replacement and is better than many other invasive remedies for arthritis.
Stem cell injections can offer a quick and easy recovery. The treatment is offered on an outpatient basis and the patients can begin their normal activity within 24 hours. There are very few complications arising from the procedure and minimal chances of infection or rejection, as the cells are taken from the body of the patient.
