What is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disorder. It is a common type of arthritis where nearly 15 million patients are affected by this condition every year in India. The main reason for OA is wear and tear of the articular cartilage and ligament, loss of synovial fluid or loss of regenerative capacity of chondrocytes. The articular cartilage is especially vulnerable to damage. Normal load-bearing capacity and biomechanical properties of thinning cartilage are severely compromised during the course of disease progression. Common joints that are affected by Osteoarthritis are Knee, Hip, Hand Joints, Neck etc.

What Causes Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis symptoms and signs

Osteoarthritis is a progressive joint disease, The most common symptoms of osteoarthritis are:

The fundamental question that comes to mind:

With science evolving, versatile options are being made available to treat such conditions. Unistem have treated number of severe osteoarthritis cases in india through alternative medical treatments. These include usage of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) derived from ones own blood, Mesenchymal stem cells etc., For more details click here.

The procedure of using PRP and MSCs is simple. It hardly takes a few minutes to complete and the patient can return home the very same day.

The benefits that have been observed are reduction in pain, reduced progression of the condition, and an overall improvement in the quality of life.
