More than 50 million adults (and 300,000 children) suffer from some type of arthritis in the U.S. It is the leading cause of disability in America. Even though arthritis is very common, it is not well understood. Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease as many believe; its is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions.
Common arthritis symptoms include inflammation, swelling, pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion in the joints. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may remain the same for years, but may also progress or get worse over time. Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, including knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also effect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as most joints.
Typical treatments include non-steroidal and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. While these drugs may relieve pain, eliminate inflammation in the joints, they do not accelerate the recovery of the effected cartilage tissue. The only method that is able to reverse the degeneration is regenerative medicine. Using regenerative medicine for arthritis has been successful in highly reputable clinics for many years. Regenerative medicine is a powerful option that may help to improve the quality of life for people suffering with arthritis.
