Living with arthritis can be incredibly challenging, regardless of the type you may have. It affects the joints, leading to symptoms like swelling, restricted joint movements, and morning stiffness after inactivity.
Dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis can be particularly tough, as it's an autoimmune disease where your body's antibodies attack the joint lining, causing painful swelling and inflammation. Over time, this inflammation can lead to bone erosion and joint deformity, making daily life difficult.
While conventional treatments like anti-rheumatic medication and physiotherapy can be effective, stem cell therapy holds promise in re-modulating immunity, harnessing your body's natural healing ability, and preventing autoimmune attacks, which is the primary cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
On the other hand, Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that occurs as the cartilage wears away over time, leading to joint pain and stiffness. Current treatments focus on pain management with pain relievers, prescription drugs, hot tub therapy, and surgery as a last resort. In the case of Osteoarthritis, stem cells help regenerate the cartilage tissue in your knee joint, providing better support to your knee and potentially halting the progression of the disease.
