Stem Cell Treatment: Promise for Arthritis Cure

Arthritis involves mechanical abnormalities at the place of bone joints in human body. There is no specific joint in human body where Arthritis can take place, however in most of these cases it is found that osteoarthritis takes place at knee joint. Mainly people with forty plus age have more chances to get this disease. Main reasons for this disease are like excess mechanical movements like walking, running, athletic exercises and work outs. There are treatments available for this disease like joint replacement, acupuncture and other drug medications with their own limitations. However, most promising, natural and long lasting treatment for this disease is stem cell treatment.    

Stem cell treatments belong to new and non conventional natural medication treatment type. However, three decades of research on stem cell development and processing have started showing guaranteed results in kind of orthopaedic diseases.  Along with osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis many other types of arthritis can be treated with this treatment. Unlike traditional treatments on arthritis stem cell treatment is not consist of any surgery. The theoretical justification for the approach to adult stem cell therapy is based on solid science. All human life begins with an ovum and a sperm. Cells then arise in the fertilized ovum, which after a few days in the womb develop into embryonic stem cells. These cells are much unspecialized and possess the ability to develop into all of the 220 human cell types.

Diagnosis for arthritis is made by clinical examination from an appropriate health professional, and may be supported by other tests such as radiology and blood tests, depending on the type of suspected arthritis. All arthritides potentially feature pain. Pain patterns may differ depending on the arthritides and the location. Rheumatoid arthritis is generally worse in the morning and associated with stiffness; in the early stages, patients often have no symptoms after a morning shower. Osteoarthritis, on the other hand, tends to be worse after exercise. In the aged and children, pain might not be the main presenting feature; the aged patient simply moves less, the infantile patient refuses to use the affected limb.

Mesenchymal stem cellsImage, or MSCs, are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types,including: osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), and adipocytes (fat cells). Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult autologous stem cells found in the bone marrow. However, Mesenchymal stem cells can also be isolated from other tissues including cord blood, peripheral blood, fallopian tube, and fatal liver and lung. Mesenchymal stem cells are a distinct entity to the Mesenchymal, embryonic connective tissue which is derived from the mesoderm and differentiates to form hematopoietic stem cells. Because of their multi-potent capabilities, Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) lineages have been used successfully in animal models to regenerate articular cartilage and in human models to regenerate bone.

There are very few institutes and hospitals that provide stem cell treatment for arthritis. However, you can visit and consult stem cell transplant experts in Mumbai. Some of these institutes also provides virtual clinic facility for first consultation.
