Regenerative Medicine and Stem cells may be the most innovative, life-changing breakthrough for aging baby boomers allowing them to stay active and healthy and enjoy their golden years.
As we age, as a result of wear and tear, the cartilage and synovial fluids that protect are joints break down. We being to experience aches and pains, inflammation, and stiffness commonly accepted as an inevitable part of aging. Eventually the deterioration progresses and results in the Degenerative Joint Disease and Arthritis which can be debilitating and result in decreased mobility
Degenerative joint disease is relentlessly progressive and traditional medicine has nothing to offer except "temporary band-aids" such as hyaluronic acid shots or cortisone shots or anti-inflammatory drugs to try to ease the pain and eventually as a last resort, joint replacement surgery. Over one million Americans a year have joint replacement surgery seeking some relief from their constant joint pain and arthritis.
With Regenerative Medicine Therapies we can now stimulate our body to rebuild the joint cushioning cartilage and synovial membranes decreasing inflammation and naturally ameliorating pain which helps to restore mobility.
Regenerative medicine is still in its infancy, and there now may be hope to slow or possibly reverse the progressive damage of degenerative joint disease.
Arthritis affects as many as 91 million Americans and Knee arthritis is the most common form of wear and tear arthritis affecting more woman than men. Arthritis of the knee is associated with lost work time and limits the quality of your life
The knee is the strongest joint of the body and is comprised of three bones: the large thigh bone (femur) and the shinbone (tibia), joined by the kneecap (patella). The reason why the knee is most commonly affected by arthritis is that it absorbs about one-and-a half times your body weight with every step.
The knee joint is cushioned and protected by cartilage and synovial membrane that secretes a lubricating fluid. Arthritic knee pain occurs when these protective layers deteriorate and bone starts to rub on bone causing inflammation, swelling, stiffness and pain
Symptoms of Knee Arthritis may include: Joint pain, Joint Swelling, Stiffness, Limited Range of Motion
Diagnosis of Knee Arthritis is by some or all of the following:
Traditional therapies like steroids, cortisone and hyaluronic acid shots, and pills may act help mask the symptoms, but do not stop or reverse the progressive degenerative process. Ultimately you may need knee replacement surgery when the pain gets to be unbearable
Stem Cell and Regenerative therapies offer a potential alternative therapy that may even slow or reverse the degenerate damage:
Advantages of Regenerative Therapy:
Elbow arthritis is not as common as knee or hip arthritis, but when it develops it can cause pain both when you bend your elbow or when you straighten your elbow when carrying something.
The elbow is a rather stable joint and compared to the hip and knee, the elbow is not primarily a weight-bearing joint. The elbow joint is consists of matched joint surfaces held together with strong supporting ligaments
Arthritis of the elbow develops due to worn out cartilage often resulting from either an injury or from regular wear and tear.
The most common symptoms of elbow arthritis:
Elbow Arthritis is usually diagnosed by physical exam and X-rays
Traditional treatments for Elbow Arthritis are periodic rest, cold and hot compresses, pain management and surgery.
Stem cell therapy may help to decrease inflammation, ameliorate pay and may even promote the repair and regeneration of the damaged tissue.
Shoulder Arthritis is most common in people with a previous shoulder injury or those who have a genetic predisposition.
The shoulder is a large complex joint and it is in near constant use from combing your hair, reaching for something, swinging a golf club or fishing pole to even just signing your name.
The amount of use and overuse causes the protective cartilage to break down, especially as we age and our cartilage loses elasticity, and as the cartilage wears away bone starts rubbing on bone resulting in arthritis and pain.
Shoulder arthritis most commonly occurs in middle-age or older people either as a result of
The symptoms of Shoulder Arthritis are pain and stiffness, a heavy feeling, grinding, and the shoulder tires easily. The stiffness is usually worse in the morning.
Shoulder arthritis is usually diagnosed by X-ray and imaging test or blood tests if due to Rheumatoid Arthritis
Stem Cells and Regenerative Therapy may give you an option to treat your shoulder pain and the potential to even slow the degenerative process or even reverse the deterioration.
Non-surgical Stem Cell therapy plus RejuvaWAVE® may be an alternative to invasive shoulder surgery and long recovery times up to six months
