Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, capable of affecting any joint but most frequently occurring in the knees, hips, hands, and back. The condition is characterized by the gradual thinning and wearing of the protective cartilage in a joint where two bones meet. Osteoarthritis is a condition that will ultimately start to occur in old age, as cellular regeneration slows to a point that can’t keep up with natural degeneration. This condition can be incredibly painful and worsen as you move the affected joint. It can progress to a state where movement is nearly impossible if left untreated.
The professionals at Stem Cellutions have years of expertise administering stem cell therapy for a range of joint and pain management. Previously Osteoarthritis pain treatments were limited to steroid injections, physical therapy, partial replacement, or full osteoarthritis replacement surgery. Stem Cell therapy provides a promising non-surgical option. This 2019 study highlighted by the National Institute of Health, discusses the relative safety of stem cell therapy as well as its promising therapeutic effects in effectively managing osteoarthritis.
Think of stem cells as unprogrammed cells, awaiting instruction for what type of cell they will function as. Cells tend to follow gene mapping and adapt to the function of the surrounding cells. When stem cells are injected into injury sites, that is the intended purpose, to provide your body with fresh, unprogrammed cells, so that it has the potential building blocks to repair damaged tissue. Stem cells are extracted from natural sources that are familiar to the human body, for example, taken from bone marrow. So you can consider stem cell therapy as a simple relocation of resources. Taking resources from a place of abundance, and placing them directly in an area of need!
When stem cells are injected into osteoarthritic joints, the goal is to reduce inflammation in the joint to give the patient better mobility and relieve pressure. The long term goal is to introduce potentially regenerative cellular material to slow or reverse the effects of osteoarthritis. Your body can use these cells to restore working function to hip, hand, knee, and back joints, and as a result, ease your pain.

As mentioned above, osteoarthritis can develop in any joint in the body, but the most commonly affected are the:
There are commonalities among these joints. They are the most frequently used joints, that bear the most strain, and the progressive damage of any of them can severely impact your quality of life. This condition is degenerative, meaning it will continue to worsen until you seek out therapy.
