Osteoarthrirtis is an inflammation of the joint cavities. It can lead to the destruction of the lining membranes and supporting ligaments of the joint as well as the capsule holding the joint. It is more common in middle age, and especially overweight patients. Females are more likely to suffer from osteoarthritis than men. Hereditary factors also play a role in the disease.
Osteoarthritis is a painful condition limiting joint movement and restricting activities. The joints gets swollen due to fluid effusion and it becomes very painful to move them. If the condition is not treated it can end with the destruction of the joint and this would then lead to joint replacement surgery. Common joints osteoarthritis affects are the knee joint, hip joint, shoulder joint and facet joints.
Early treatment with plasma PRP and steam cell markedly help in reversing the process of inflammation, and with repair of damaged tissue. If done early, stem cell injections and PRP injections can significantly avoid the need for joint replacement.
How can stem cells or PRP treatment help?
By using cells from your own body, stem cell and PRP treatments distinguish themselves from other treatments. These treatments are non invasive and use platelets from your own blood samples to heal you. The treatment begins with a consultation with our physicians. Along with a physical exam imaging diagnostics may be recommended. Once the case is diagnosed, and the stem cell or PRP treatment is deemed to be suitable we begin by collecting a small blood sample.
The platelets in the blood sample are then activated and centrifuged by our technicians. Once ready, the stem cells can be injected into the target area requiring the healing. The healing begins almost instantaneously and you can feel the pain relief begin over the area. Over the coming days and weeks it will continue to get better. Your physician may advise a course of 2-6 stem cell treatments depending on factors such as the area of treatment and the extent of damage.
