Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, is the most well-known form of arthritis. It is brought on by the deterioration of the cartilage of a joint. The cartilage is an elastic, rubbery material that spreads and pads the tip of bones in body joints. Its primary capability is to decrease grinding in the joints and act as a liaison or pad between joints.
After some time, the cartilage may wear off in a few places, extensively diminishing its capacity to function as a safeguard. As the cartilage wears away, the tendons and ligaments become stretched, leading to pains. In severe conditions, there could be friction between bones bringing about considerably more pain and immobility.
Osteoarthritis is extremely popular among the middle aged and more advanced individuals, and its side effects can vary from exceptionally gentle to extremely serious ones. The syndrome usually influences hands and weight-carrying joints, for example, the hips, knees, shoulders and feet though it can occur in any body joints.
How do stem cells work in patients with Osteoarthritis?
The most prominent symptoms in those suffering from osteoarthritis are identified with the weakening of cartilage that pads the area where bones meet. The cartilage is an elastic, rubbery tissue that grants almost frictionless joint movement. In osteoarthritis, this surface is worn out. In the long run, if the cartilage deteriorates totally, the individual will experience bone moving over bone.
This stem cell therapy is intended to focus on these places inside the joints to assist with the formation of new cartilage cells. As mesenchymal stem cells are multi-functional they can separate into cartilage known as chondrytes. The objective of every stem cell therapy is to infuse the stem cells into the joint to form cartilage also called chondryte cells. Stem cells are likewise basic anti-inflammatory which can help with osteoarthritis aches and joint swelling.
