Stem Cells 21 launch new initiative to help Osteoarthritis sufferers
A new protocol for the treatment of Osteoarthritis, using umbilical cord blood-derived adult stem cells in the treatment program, is now available in Bangkok, Thailand. Patients can reasonably expect less pain and improved mobility.
Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that mostly affects cartilage. Cartilage is the slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage allows bones to glide over each other. It also helps absorb shock of movement. In osteoarthritis, the top layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows bones under the cartilage to rub together. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint. Over time, the joint may lose its normal shape. Also, bone spurs may grow on the edges of the joint. Bits of bone or cartilage can break off and float inside the joint space, which causes more pain and damage.
People with osteoarthritis often have joint pain and reduced motion. Unlike some other forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis affects only joints and not internal organs.
Prior to this patients had only conventional treatment options available to them, such as weight control, exercise, rest, expensive surgery and endless drugs.
Now, in a 7-day protocol in Bangkok they can have millions of repair stem cells injected to help alleviate the pain and loss of mobility. The procedure is safe and may provide significant improvement to the patient’s quality of life.
