Osteoarthritis : Overview
Around the world, lots of people are suffering from the most common form of Arthritis known as “Osteoarthritis”. It is caused by the disappearance of the cartilage from the bone, wherein the cartilage is supposed to protect the bone. Though it can happen to any joint in the human body, the most common sites of this disorder are Hands, Knees, Spine or Hips. Because of this disorder, the functioning of joint decreases, severe pain can be found in the concerned area, the affected joint becomes stiff and tender leading to very less flexibility in the joint movement.
Osteoarthritis is a progressive disorder, means it was impossible to stop the deterioration of the symptoms or reverse them. However, thanks to the new form of treatment involving Stem Cell Treatment with PRP doses, it now possible to cure this disorder.
The progression of Osteoarthritis can be slowed down with regular healthy exercise and healthy weight. However, in many cases surgery was required and almost 95% patients do not want to undergo knives due to fear of pain, difficulty, abrasive and unsafe risky procedure and this is where Stem Cell Therapy with PRP comes in useful and this therapy can provide significant results to the patient and it is very safe with no risk or side effects at all. Just not only this, this therapy can permanently stop the symptoms and progression of the disease bringing back the healthier life of the patient.
Knee Osteoarthritis :
Knee Osteoarthritis is mostly found in the elder patients above 50 years of age and it is caused by the degenerative disappearance of the cartilage from the joints over the course of many years due to long-term use.
The knee joint is the largest and strongest joint in the human body out of all other joints. The knee joint is also a complex joint as it contains kneecap, shinbone and thighbone end. All these parts meet at the same point. A large number of articular cartilage needs to be there in the knee joint to make its movement smooth and pain-free. Articular cartilage acts as a necessary cushion to protect the bones from scratching each other.
Knee joint and its cartilage are continuously in motion during many daily routine activities like walking, climbing stairs, driving, etc. Due to many years of continuous use, the knee joint and cartilage become fray making it rough and the cartilage disappears, hence the required protective shield is gone and the space between bones becomes less which causes various symptoms which progresses over time making the life of the patient difficult or maybe worse.
There are various factors that increase a person's chances of developing osteoarthritis. These factors include:
- Obesity . Obesity increases the risk for developing osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and spine. Maintaining ideal weight or losing excess weight may help prevent osteoarthritis of these areas or decrease the rate of progression once osteoarthritis is established.
- Heredity. Some people have an inherited defect in one of the genes responsible for making cartilage. This causes defective cartilage, which leads to more rapid deterioration of joints. People born with joint abnormalities are more likely to develop osteoarthritis, and those born with an abnormality of the spine (such as scoliosis or curvature of the spine) are more likely to develop osteoarthritis of the spine.
- Injury. Injuries contribute to the development of osteoarthritis. For example, athletes who have knee-related injuries may be at higher risk of developing osteoarthritis of the knee. In addition, people who have had a severe back injury may be predisposed to develop osteoarthritis of the spine. People who have had a broken bone near a joint are prone to develop osteoarthritis in that joint.
- Other diseases. People with rheumatoid arthritis, the second most common type of arthritis, are more likely to develop osteoarthritis. In addition, certain rare conditions, such as iron overload or excess growth hormone, increase the chance of developing OA.
- Joint overuse. Overuse of certain joints increases the risk of developing osteoarthritis. For example, people in jobs requiring repeated bending of the knee are at increased risk for developing osteoarthritis of the knee.
- Joint pain
- Joint stiffness
- Inability to move joints
- Loss of flexibility
- Grating effect of bones
- Bone spurs
There are two main types of osteoarthritis:
Primary: Most common, generalized, primarily affects the fingers, thumbs, spine, hips, knees, and the great (big) toes.
Secondary: Occurs with a pre-existing joint abnormality, including injury or trauma, such as repetitive or sports-related; inflammatory arthritis, such as rheumatoid, psoriatic, or gout; infectious arthritis; genetic joint disorders, such as Ehlers-Danlos (also known as hypermobility or "double-jointed; congenital joint disorders; or metabolic joint disorders.
Stem Cell + PRP Treatment for Osteoarthritis at MedAcess, India :
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) dose is one of the significantly effective treatment methods for Osteoarthritis patients with the Knee problem. PRP doses are also useful for various other conditions like tendon disorder, joint degeneration, cartilage defects, etc.
