Break Free from Osteoarthritis Pain with Stem Cell Therapy

 At Innovations Stem Cell Center, Dr. Bill Johnson uses stem cell therapy to treat patients suffering from osteoarthriknee pain coldtis. As the end of summer draws near and the colder weather begins to creep in, many people suffering from osteoarthritis begin dreading what that time of year brings: pain and discomfort. Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disorder and the most common form of arthritis, affects more than 26 million people in the United States. Patients commonly suffer from pain, swelling, and joint stiffness, making everyday tasks difficult to complete. With chilly weather on the way, it’s no wonder why osteoarthritis patients want to keep Jack Frost at bay as long as possible. According to a 2007 Tufts University research study, changes in temperature or barometric pressure triggered arthritic symptoms in osteoarthritis patients. In fact, even a mere 10-degree drop in temperature was significant enough for patients to report a change in their level of pain. While fluffy mittens and cozying up beside the fire are great ways to keep most people warm and toasty this winter, it’s not nearly enough for those suffering from osteoarthritis. In fact, in some cases, traditional treatments have done little to ease the pain associated with this chronic condition, which is why stem cell therapy is a viable alternative.


While osteoarthritis is most common in people age 40 and older, it’s also considered a "wear and tear" form of arthritis and that can occur well before the age of 40. Because it’s considered a chronic condition, it typically requires long-term medication and sometimes invasive treatments or surgeries. Traditional treatments for this condition include medication (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), Tylenol/acetaminophen, steroid anti-inflammatories, narcotics such as hydrocodone and others), supportive devices such as braces or wraps, physical and/or occupational therapy, frequent injections into affected joints, the use of durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, canes, walkers, etc. and joint repair and/or replacement surgery. Though some patients find success in these treatments, for others, the pain remains. That’s where stem cell therapy can make all the difference.

Frequently, the pain and discomfort associated with osteoarthritis is related to the loss of cartilage, the cushion between the bone and the joint. As that cartilage begins to deteriorate, patients are left with bone rubbing against bone. Because stem cells can replicate and transform into other types of cells or tissues, administering stem cells to targeted areas in osteoarthritis patients, can potentially create new joint cartilage cells, replacing the lost cartilage. Most patients experience a decrease in pain, swelling, joint stiffness and immobility and increased range of motion.

Long-term and invasive treatment models for osteoarthritis can interfere with a patient’s way of life, which is why a minimally invasive and a natural option like stem cell therapy can be a great answer. If traditional treatments for osteoarthritis haven’t worked for you, and you’re interested in learning more about stem cell therapy, call our office today at 214-256-1462 or send us a message to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bill Johnson.
