What is Osteoarthritis?
The CDC estimates that over 32 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis (OA). Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint condition, meaning the structure and integrity of your joints begins to decline, causing immobility, pain, and stiffness. OA occurs when the cartilage in your joint wears away with natural age or due to an injury. The thinning or lack of cartilage causes the bones to make contact with each other, resulting in rough contact, grinding, and inflammation.
Osteoarthritis is likely not the only aspect of your joint pain. Prior to the joint and cartilage degenerating, there were likely years of muscular weakness, compromised tendons, and ligaments that support the joint. By taking a more comprehensive approach to include diagnostic evaluation and treatment of these surrounding structures our doctors can provide a more effective utilizing occurrence

How Stem Cells Treat Joint Pain & Osteoarthritis
You may be asking, how can stem cells help treat joint pain and osteoarthritis? Well, the stem cells used at the Cords of Revitalization Clinic are pluripotent, meaning they can differentiate into multiple different types of bodily cells. These unprogrammed cells can be used to repair and rebuild important structural tissues in and around your joints. These cells can:
Regenerate Cartilage – Cartilage is one of the most essential structures in the joints of the body. They allow the joints to move smoothly, absorb impact and prevent bone-on-bone contact. As the cartilage deteriorates, you will feel grating and locking sensations, eventually leading to pain and immobility
Reduce Inflammation – Inflammation is a natural response to an injury, and while it serves a purpose, it can cause serious issues if it persists in a chronic way. Stem cell therapy contains incredible anti-inflammatory properties that can decrease tension and pressure, restore mobility and prevent pinched nerves.
Reverse Cellular Degeneration – Stem cell therapy releases proteins (called cytokines) that slow down or reverse cellular degeneration and/or decrease pain. As your joint begins to regain its structural integrity, your pain will decrease and you will regain working function.
Essentially, the influx of new cells allows injured and damaged joints to regenerate, fixing the problem at its source and relieving your pain!
