Knee pain can be a major problem for many Americans. As you age, your joints degenerate as everyday wear and tear takes its toll on your bones, muscles and joints. Therapy that incorporates stem cells (cells that can grow into different types of cells) is a relatively new form of treatment that exhibits a lot of promise towards the advancement of modern medicine. The industry is booming in the United States, with an estimated 500, or more clinics currently operating across the country. Many of these clinics offer help for patients with conditions ranging from autism, multiple sclerosis (MS) and even as a cure for male pattern baldness. Since over 30 million Americans suffer from knee pain and osteoarthritis, the degenerative diseases are heavily targeted by the stem cell industry’s own advertising efforts.
Knee pain can be helped with stem cell treatments by rebuilding the cartilage and muscle tissue around joints.
With so many people experiencing the pain that comes with wear and tear around the joints and muscles, stem cell therapy has become an attractive alternative to surgery and other costly medical procedures. Bones rubbing and scraping across other bones is typically what causes people the most pain. This happens with the loss of articular cartilage area, or a chondral loss, or even the result of a meniscus tear. Joint damage associated with osteoarthritis is also the main cause of bone spurs for many adults in the feet, knees and spinal column.
Many scientists and doctors who study the results from clinical trials in stem cell research view this field of study with much hope and promise. Patient testimonials from all over the world are showing a lot of evidence to support stem cell therapy’s effectiveness. Yet all of this comes as the FDA is currently considering tightening regulations on the burgeoning stem cell industry. US news media outlets constantly latch on to scandalous headlines, attempting to delegitimize an entire industry, as a result of a few people getting hurt from questionable stem cell injections. While there certainly are some ‘bad actors’ in the field of stem cell treatments, Dr. David A. Steenblock has witnessed great success from his patients’ experience, firsthand.
Your body holds the capacity to heal itself, as stem cell therapy helps to regrow cartilage and muscle tissues.
With the use of stem cells extracted from your own body, the specialists at Personalized Regenerative medicine can help facilitate regrowth of tissue in the affected areas. Stem cell injections have also been shown in numerous studies, to help reduce inflammation, while assisting in musculoskeletal regeneration. In a typical stem cell treatment, stem cells are extracted from your bone marrow and injected into the area causing you pain. This pain can virtually immobilize you from performing your normal daily activities.
Stem cell therapy can help rejuvenate musculoskeletal tissues, while triggering healing and tissue repair in the area that needs help. Through the combination of Dr. Steenblock’s decades of experience in researching regenerative medicine, coupled with the existing body of medical knowledge has helped to create an impressive and promising gamut of treatment options for a variety of degenerative diseases, such as joint pain and osteoarthritis. Autologous stem cells are cells derived from the patient’s own body and can help initiate the body’s natural healing process.
Stem cell therapy is in direct competition with traditional and outdated treatment plans for joint pain. Typically, a medical doctor will advise patients to take anti-inflammatories, like ibuprofen or other NSAIDs, to reduce pain and swelling. Inflammation is an important step in the body’s natural healing process, allowing for the metabolism of new muscle tissue through protein synthesis. This is the case for many current medical and pharmaceutical treatments for disease. Often, doctors prescribe medicine to help treat merely the symptoms of pain from disease, while few treatments actually address the underlying causes of degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis.
