Treating Arthritis with Stem Cell Therapy

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is very common; 1 in 3 over the age of 30 and 1 in 2 over the age of 50 suffer from this debilitating disease. Essentially, it’s a progressively worsening joint pain that leads to decreased range of motion. For anyone with arthritis, this often means a reduced ability (or inability) to exercise and in some cases, an athletic career that is cut short. This results in making us feel a lot older than we really are.

Types of arthritis

While there are many kinds of arthritis, osteoarthritis is the most common form, where wear and tear leads to declining mobility and ability to function. Rheumatoid arthritis is different; it is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the joints, leading to inflammation and severe joint damage. Psoriatic arthritis is another common type of arthritis that results in the inflammation of the skin and joints.

Common treatment options

Prescription drugs

Frequently steroid (oral or injections directly into the joint) are prescribed along with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. The adverse side effects of these medications can be significant and dangerous, affecting the kidneys and other organ systems with very little or no improvement in the condition of your joint. Marginal pain relief is only temporary and the risks involved are frankly not acceptable.

Surgery

The prognosis of arthritis can lead to constant pain, and eventually limited mobility. Arthroscopic or artificial implant surgeries are prominently used as a means to moderate the pain. However the downside to these options are risks of major surgery and prolonged rehabilitation and recovery. Pain relief may not be complete and it does not stop continued progression of the disease.

A better treatment option?

Traditional treatment options are riddled with side effects, prolonged rehab and in most cases, a gradual decline leading to joint replacement surgery. However, the most vital component of a joint is the articular cartilage that lines the surface of the bones where the joint is formed. Therefore, the reality is, in order to maintain long-term peak functional ability, we need a way to regrow that cartilage.

Stem cell therapy for arthritis

Here at PreciseCare, we have figured out the best way to regrow that vital piece of cartilage by using your own stem cells and blood platelets. This regenerative treatment allows your body to restore and heal its own tissues. Plus, stem cell therapy for arthritis offers a very quick and easy recovery. Furthermore, because no foreign materials are introduced in this treatment, this means there is no chance of rejection and very few negative side effects.

Peer-reviewed published references

There are a variety of studies discussing the benefits of stem cell therapy for arthritis. To learn more, click on the links below:

1. Adult Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells Delivered Via Intra-Articular Injection To The Knee Following Partial Medial Meniscectomy: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Controlled Study: This double-blind, controlled study involved 55 patients at 7 institutions who underwent a partial medial meniscectomy. Those patients who received mesenchymal stem cells, injected 7-10 days after the meniscectomy, demonstrated meniscus regeneration and a significant reduction in knee pain. (J Bone Joint Surg Am. 2014)

2. Intra-Articular Injection Of Mesenchymal Stem Cells For The Treatment Of Osteoarthritis Of The Knee: A Proof-Of-Concept Clinical Trial: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were injected into 18 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, to treat cartilage loss. Patients who received the higher-dose of MSCs saw a decrease in their cartilage defect and in increase in the volume of cartilage, resulting in improved function and decrease pain of the knee joint. (Stem Cells. 2014)

3. Treatment Of Knee Osteoarthritis With Autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cells: Two-Year Follow-Up Results: Mesenchymal Stem Cell therapy in 12 patients was followed up to 2 years. The functional improvement was up to 78% as well as a significant improvement in the quality of the cartilage was noted 2 years after treatment. The authors concluded that stem cell therapy may be a valid alternative treatment for chronic knee osteoarthritis. The intervention is simple, does not require hospitalization or surgery, provides pain relief, and significantly improves cartilage quality. (Transplantation. 2014)
