WHAT IS ARTHRITIS?
Arthritis is degenerative loss of cartilage over time. It is a condition that involves the inflammation of a joint.
With overuse or age, the cartilage covering the bones of a joint begins to break down.
Some people may have arthritis in their hands, knees, shoulders, or hips, while others experience it in multiple places in their body.
Arthritis pain can be debilitating for some.
Arthritis pain can feel like anything from stiffness and swelling to burning or aching. It can even cause a reduced range of motion in the affected joint.
What Causes Arthritis?
Arthritis can be the result of several different types of damage to the joints.
Family History • Age • Activity • Previous Joint Injury • Smoking • Obesity • Previous surgeries • & Others
According to recent statistics published by the CDC, arthritis affects—
18.1% Male & 23.5% Female
That’s 22.7% of the US Population.
The Different Types of Arthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and comes from everyday life. Wear and tear on the joints can, over time, lead to the deterioration of cartilage around the joints.
Other factors such as a previous injury or surgery, smoking, and obesity can also contribute to degeneration of the cartilage.
This breakdown process normally takes place over a number of years and may go undetected.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is actually an autoimmune disorder in which your own body no longer recognizes the lining of the joint capsule.
This can lead to the lining (synovial membrane) to become inflamed and swollen.
It can eventually lead to the total elimination of this membrane.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Stem Cell Treatment for Arthritis in Kansas City
Stem cell treatment for arthritis is a very promising treatment in the world of medicine.
Motus Biologics offers stem cell and regenerative medicine in Kansas City to help our patients treat arthritis, injuries, and more.
WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?
Stem cells are natural products from your body that, when injected into a point of pain or injury, can help create a pro-healing environment for more effective, natural healing processes.
In the coming months and years, stem cell injections are headed toward becoming a leading treatment for arthritis in Kansas City and across the country.
Benefits of stem cell treatment for arthritis
While stem cell treatment for arthritis is still being researched, findings at this point have shown that stem cell therapy can uniquely fight arthritis pain when used as injection therapy alone and in conjunction to orthopedic surgical procedures.
It’s important to note that there is no cure for arthritis. However, where traditional treatments like surgery are painful, expensive, and time-consuming, stem cell treatment is more cost effective, less disruptive to your daily life, and can help relieve pain in a natural, non-invasive way.
