Degenerative arthritis is painful, debilitating inflammation of the junctures connecting bones that can contribute to the development of bone and joint problems, which commonly results in osteoarthritis. This disease, often referred to as OA, is a cumulative effect of prolonged deterioration of the cartilage between bones. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for degenerative joint disease, but the inflammation can be managed to prevent or deter osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is caused when the cartilage in joints wears away, causing the bones to rub against one another. This results in serious pain, inflammation and loss of mobility. This disease can impact the hips, knees, spine and hands, and in the most severe of cases it can cause deformation of the affected joints.
Advanced Orthopedic Medicine
The Institute of Regenerative Medicine transcended conventional boundaries by pioneering innovative cell-based therapy, which offers noninvasive solutions for many bone disorders, particularly degenerative arthritis. The primary components of the human body, stem cells are known for their ability to adapt into specialized cell structures as needed. These cells can sometimes be used to restore other structures that have been damaged. This makes these cells an incredible tool in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions including degenerative arthritis.
