Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease. Symptoms normally include joint pain generally described as a sharp ache or a burning sensation, tenderness, loss of ability and often stiffness and a cracking noise known as crepitus and it is also the main cause of joint effusion. When bone surfaces become less well protected by cartilage, bone may be exposed and damaged.
OA commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and the large weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and knees, although in theory, any joint in the body can be affected. As OA progresses, the affected joints appear larger, are stiff and painful, and usually feel better with gentle use but worse with excessive or prolonged use.
World Stem Cells Clinic’s Advanced Stem Cell Therapy (ASCT) for Osteoarthritis (OA)
A large and expanding body of publications utilizing stem cell technology in orthopedic applications indicates that the infusion of stem cells and growth factors result in a decrease of inflammatory chemicals and the stimulation of the cartilage cells.
With the patient’s own adult stem cells, previously stimulated and then enhanced and expanded at our laboratory we address some of the underlying causes of the disease. Stem cells induce physical changes in the body to help it heal and gain a better quality of life.
A study designed and conducted at World Stem Cells Clinic for Osteoarthritis successfully delivered:
- Pain relief in as little as 12-48 hours post infusion.
- Better joint flexibility and motion.
- Improvement stiffness, tenderness and swelling.
- Improved strength in affected joint(s).
- Decrease of crepitus (cracking joints).
- Better movement control.
- Slow down or altogether stop the progression of the disease.
- Increase in overall energy.
One of the great advantages we have observed in world literature and our own experience is that patients who do not respond well to conventional therapies are great candidates for the Advanced Stem Cell Therapy we studied before seeking out surgical and/or long-term steroidal pharmacological applications.
If you or a person you care about suffers from one of these or have any other related symptoms please do not hesitate to contact us to find out if we are conducting further studies.
