No one likes living with pain. As we get older, arthritis starts to set into our joints. Arthritis is a joint disorder featuring inflammation. It affects approximately 350 million people in the world, with 40 million Americans being affected too. Symptoms include pain, the limited function of joints, and joint inflammation, characterized by joint stiffness, redness, swelling, warmth, and tenderness.
There are over 100 types of arthritis. But the most common types are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, and gout. Osteoarthritis breaks down the protective cartilage inside the joint. For Rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s own immune system attacks the joints and other organs, in particular going after synovium (the lining of the joints).
With psoriatic arthritis, the immune system attacks the connective tissues that tendons and ligaments to bones, causing enthesitis; and also attacks the skin, causing psoriasis. And, as a central pain syndrome, fibromyalgia rewires the body wherein the brain and spinal cord process pain signals differently. Pain becomes heightened.
To treat arthritis, stem cells can be used as injection therapy alone, or in addition to orthopedic surgical procedures. So far, stem cell therapies have resulted in pain relief and improvement in function or quality of life. Only a few studies showed new or improved cartilage or bone formation. Stem cells, at this stage, can only treat your arthritic symptoms and provide pain relief. Stem cell treatments do not cure arthritis.
We know that having arthritis is extremely debilitating and reduces your living conditions. One-third of adults with arthritis report limited leisure and work activities, with 25% in severe pain, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Disclaimer: Stem cell treatments are not miracle treatment and do not cure all illness. And, not all stem cells treatments have been evaluated and approved by the FDA. At Genesis Medical Clinic, we recommend stem cell treatment to specific patients due to the numerous anecdotal evidence that stem cells work when administered appropriately.
