, / 304 0

The discomfort in your joints can make living miserable. Even the thought of going to bed does not provide any comfort since you know you will toss and turn in an effort to feel comfortable. Going up and down stairs can be too inconvenient.

Joint pain can cause havoc in your life, regardless of whether you have arthritis, strained muscles, inflamed tendons, or soft tissue sprains and rips.

Some people can lose bone mass considerably more quickly than is typical as they age, which can result in the disorder.

There are a few other factors that can enhance the risk of developing the such condition:

  • Few other medical conditions like inflammatory conditions and hormone-related conditions
  • A family history of osteoporosis especially a history of any hip fracture in any parent
  • Long-term consumption of certain medications can also affect bone strength/hormone levels
  • Having a low BMI
  • Heavy drinking and smoking

Scientists categorise stem cells as having the capacity for both of the following:

  • Self-renewal: Both inside the body and in a lab, stem cells are capable of self-division and self-duplication. Human bone marrow tissue can be used to extract a tiny quantity of augmented stem cells that can then be injected into the injured joints.
  • Differentiate: Stem cells can give rise to many cellular kinds. For instance, a stem cell may turn into a bone, muscle, or piece of cartilage. Cases where these characteristics can be applied.

Stem cells are special

There are stem cells all over the body. The ability of stem cells to divide and multiply into several cell types makes them unique. When exposed to specific conditions, stem cells are known to change to meet those needs.

Stem cells for sports injuries and osteoarthritis

Stem cells may be injected into the arthritic joint or applied during surgery. When delivering stem cell injections, medical imaging such as ultrasonography is used to deliver cells exactly to the site of cartilage injury.

Stem cells and their applications

There are no established medical standards that specify who is eligible for stem cell treatment for arthritis. The choice of who receives stem cell therapy is now left up to patients and physicians.

Stem cell in itself can be used

To help in the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues and structures in a variety of degenerative diseases. One function of stem cells in the preservation of joints is the potential therapy of arthritis in the hip and knee joints.

The stem cell procedure

The procedure involves performing hip or knee arthroscopy (keyhole surgery).

Side effects and stem cells

However, the surgical techniques utilised for stem cell therapy are the same as those for standard hip or knee arthroscopic operations. Any surgical intervention includes some level of risk. 

Stem cells and evidence

It is pretty new to use stem cells for therapy. However, it has sparked such widespread interest that a lot of research has been done in this area. Studies on animals and people reveal that stem cell therapy for hips, knees, and even ankles have a safe and favourable outcome.

Hear it from the experts:

One of the best sources of stem cells with the capacity to replace damaged joint cartilage is mesenchymal bone marrow. The only way to fully regenerate your joints is to treat your joint diseases using a 360⁰ holistic approach.
