Why stem cell regeneration is a game changer

Download to read offline

Osteoarthritis, a joint disease also known as degenerative arthritis, is the most common form of arthritis. It impacts roughly 20 million Americans. When seeking treatment in San Antonio, many people consider options as simple as pain relief medicine and as complex as joint fusion. However, as medical technology has improved, a new, alternative option for osteoarthritis treatment has become viable: adult stem cell therapy. Organizations like the Stem Cell Orthopedic Institute of Texas provide opportunities to receive stem cell treatment (regenerative medicine), which has anti-inflammatory properties to help fight pain.

Why stem cell regeneration is a game changer

  1. 1. Why Stem Cell Regeneration is a Game-Changer Osteoarthritis, a joint disease also known as degenerative arthritis, is the most common form of arthritis. It impacts roughly 20 million Americans. When seeking treatment in San Antonio, many people consider options as simple as pain relief medicine and as complex as joint fusion. However, as medical technology has improved, a new, alternative option for osteoarthritis treatment has become viable: adult stem cell therapy. Organizations like the Stem Cell Orthopedic Institute of Texas provide opportunities to receive stem cell treatment (regenerative medicine), which has anti-inflammatory properties to help fight pain. The disadvantage of pain relievers are its temporary relief and side effects, which include the increased risk for heart attack and other cardiovascular problems in higher doses. Your body can also become tolerant of the drugs or experience more severity. Lastly, using pain relievers will not change the course of your arthritis. It masks the pain temporarily but does not improve the root cause of it. After consulting with your doctor, you may find that surgery is an option for dealing with knee, shoulder, or joint pain. At a young age, osteotomy, a joint-preserving surgery, can improve joint alignment and stability. Joint replacement is also another surgical process that will help improve function but it is only viable after your osteoarthritis has progressed to a severe case. Ideally, you want to avoid that situation! Scientists have made enormous progress in the field of regenerative medicine. The idea is not new but, in recent years, doctors have increased the effectiveness and safety of adult stem cell surgery in treating arthritis, frozen shoulder, rheumatoid arthritis, and much more. Here is a list of the most commonly treated conditions with Stem Cell Therapy. Mesenchymal stem cells involved in stem cell transplant and treatment will not be rejected by the body because they are the patient’s very own. According to a study supported by The Stem Cell Orthopedic Institute of Texas, only 0.04% of perpendicular bone marrow biopsies had adverse effects. Regenerative medicine is a safer treatment option than traditional surgical options. Stem cell therapy regenerates healthy cells and replaces diseased cells. This aids the repair of diseased and damaged tissues within the body. For example, a person with heart disease will be able to have cells that contribute to restoring defective heart muscle with the use of stem cell therapy.
  2. 2. With an increased understanding of stem cell therapy, doctors are able to have an alternative for patients that only requires 1-2 injection cycles, allowing them to return to normal activity in as little as 4-6 weeks. Consult with a doctor at the Stem Cell Orthopedic Institute of Texas for an accurate time estimate for your osteoarthritis or other knee, hip, or shoulder problems. Their facility is conveniently located in San Antonio, and setting up an appointment is as easy as filling out a form or giving them a call. Learn more about adult stem cell therapy here.
