People use the term “arthritis” to describe various joint pain in all parts of the body. While arthritis can affect any joint in the body, the most common form is osteoarthritis, which can also be called degenerative arthritis. Every joint, from the fingers to hips, are susceptible to osteoarthritis and this condition occurs when the cartilage that lines the joint space begins to break down, exposing the bone underneath. This of course causes significant pain and can limit a person’s mobility and flexibility. At Spine and Joint Solutions in Colorado Springs, we offer stem cell therapy that can effectively treat your osteoarthritis.
Depending on which joint is affected, as well as the severity of the degeneration, we can recommend various treatments. If stem cells are deemed a viable option, we can inject them into the arthritic joint to help regenerate cartilage and heal the damaged bone. With any regenerative medicine that we recommend, we conduct a full consultation with the patient, giving them all of the information on what to expect before, during, and after the injection. We’ll instruct you on what to do on the days leading up to the therapy, as well as what to expect in terms of results and recovery time.
Osteoarthritis affects many, many people in all parts of the world and if you’re living with it, it can be a debilitating condition. If you’ve tried conventional methods and other medicines, but found that they only relieved the pain for a short time, come to Spine and Joint Solutions in Colorado Springs today and learn about our stem cell therapy.
