Stem Cell Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the protective cartilage that covers the ends of the bone joints. This is also referred to as degenerative arthritis or the “wear and tear” arthritis. This occurs when the protein that forms the cartilage deteriorates and forms flakes or tiny cracks. This eventually results in partial to total cartilage loss.
Once there is a loss of cartilage, there’s friction between the bones and this can trigger bony growths to develop around the joints and cause pain. The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) is a leader in natural stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis including stem cell therapy for knee osteoarthritis. This advanced medical therapy can help you relieve your debilitating pain in as little as one therapy session here at one of our stem cell clinics.*
Stem cell therapy for knees and other joints with arthritis has already helped thousands of patients in the United States. This is because stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis addresses the condition at the cellular level, using the body’s own natural healing ability to repair damage and grow healthy new tissue.
Some risk factors that might lead to complications of osteoarthritis include:
- Age; this disorder mostly affects people who are 45 years and above
- Current or previous injuries to the joints
- Improperly formed joints
- A genetic defect in joint cartilage
- Sports and jobs that cause stresses on the joints mostly due to repetitive use of the joints.
How Stem Cell Therapy for Osteoarthritis differs from Conventional Osteoarthritis Therapy
Conventional options for the complications of osteoarthritis include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), pain medications, corticosteroid injections, weight management and control, exercise and braces to help lessen the pain. But take note that these do not reverse the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
In some instances, your physician may suggest total joint replacement where they will cut away the damaged cartilage and bone and then replace them with an artificial joint. They can also recommend arthroscopic surgery, which is minor surgery where the joint is examined for damage using an arthroscope that is inserted into the joint via a small incision.
However, joint replacement should only be deliberated after exhausting other non-surgical therapies. Surgery exposes the patient to different kinds of risk and entails a longer recovery time. Today, more and more people are turning to stem cell therapy for knees and other arthritic joints as a first option instead of risky, invasive surgery.
Stem Cell Therapy For Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis stem cell therapy for knees and other joints has already helped countless people find relief from pain. Even if you have already had a joint replacement, you may find that this advanced regenerative method can do wonders.
Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Osteoarthritis
NSI’s proprietary stem cell therapy for knees and joints fights the complications and pain of osteoarthritis by using the patient’s own naturally occurring mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Various stem cell research studies have supported this method of stem cell therapy for knees and joints.
Although using MSC’s are proven effective, it is important to mention that adipose-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cells are the cells that work best in cellular healing. .The adipose tissue or fatty tissue that lies just beneath the skin contains 200 times more stem cells and 18 times more pericytes. A pericyte is a type of protective cell that helps maintain the health of the body’s smallest blood vessels, like capillaries and venules. Stem cells and pericytes are both essential in joint and soft tissue regeneration.
Not only that, but fat-derived stem cells have been shown to create many more colony-forming units of MSCs than stem cells derived from other areas of the body that are commonly harvested. Plus, fat-derived MSCs have also been shown to better differentiate into cartilage and nervous system regeneration. This makes them highly effective for mesenchymal stem cell therapy for knee osteoarthritis.
For all these reasons and more, fat-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy for knees is quickly becoming the preferred alternative to risky, invasive surgery.
Who Qualifies for Osteoarthritis Stem Cell Therapy for Knees and Joints?
Most people who suffer from the condition qualify for stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis. However, every individual is different. That’s why it’s important to sit down with your NSI medical professional for that all-important first consultation.
During your consultation, your NSI medical professional will thoroughly discuss your case with you, as well as go over your medical history and any questions you may have.
Instead of opting for conventional osteoarthritis therapies you can visit us at NSI Stem Cell Centers for our regenerative and non-invasive therapies We have same day Stem Cell Procedures that will help eliminate pain associated with osteoarthritis. With our regenerative procedures, you will have less recovery downtime and decreased risk compared to other therapy options or surgery.
With Stem Cell Therapy or PRP Therapy, we are also helping address the underlying damage that’s causing the pain. Our Stem Cell Therapies for osteoarthritis are used with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy that has been enhanced and fortified with added natural growth factors and cytokines. This delivers superior healing cells directly to the source of the pain, so as your joint heals naturally, relief naturally follows.
Hear from some of our Osteoarthritis patients who have had success with Stem Cell Therapy!
“I came to NSI because my primary physical doctors did not give me much hope. They wanted me to sit home and take my medicine and just wait. I wasn’t able to exercise. I wasn’t able to do much. My pain level was 7 to 8 with my pain meds. I couldn’t walk from here to the corner without being out of breath. Now I’m doing 125 squats a day. That’s amazing for me to be able to move to function. To do my daily activities at a pain level 4 now that we’ve done the stem cell.”
“I’m very happy to be here. When I came here I could barley walk. I was in a lot of discomfort. Just everything was difficult. I couldn’t go up and down steps in a normal manner. Now after treatment I walk normal. I have no pain. I’m just delighted that I found this office.”
“I had severe knee pain in my left knee. Walking, sitting, standing, everything hurt. My left knee made my entire left leg hurt. Now I have very little pain. I can get off the couch with almost no difficulty. It’s been six days out and there’s very little pain.”
Stem Cell Therapy - How it Works
Our Adipose (Fat)-Derived Stem Cell Therapy and Bone Marrow Aspirate Therapy are an innovative therapy recommended for a wide variety of conditions including osteoarthritis stem cell therapy for knees and other joints. * Yet many people are just learning about it now for the first time. These are not embryonic stem cells or cells from fetuses. These regenerative cells come straight from your own body just a few hours before they’re injected back into your body and put to work to heal disease or dysfunction.
More and more people are turning to stem cell therapy for knees that are arthritic. It is fast becoming the first option over far riskier and invasive alternatives.
A significant number of patients who come to NSI are astonished to find out that there is a better and more effective alternative to surgical intervention and drug therapy when it comes to osteoarthritis. Even those with significant bone damage have substantial results after osteoarthritis stem cell therapy for knees and other joints. Usually, right from the first injection, patients stated improvement or relief from pain.

Osteoarthritis normally affects the lower back, hip, knees, hands, and neck, but it can also affect any joint in the body. With continued research and study we now have better options for addressing the symptoms and causes of osteoarthritis. Among these are osteoarthritis stem cell therapy for knees and other joints. Read on to find out more about these studies and what they show.
