Regenerative cells have an immense promise to help us figure out and treat various diseases, injuries, and other health-related conditions. The potential they have to heal is evident because of blood cells for diseases of the blood, which has saved the lives of many children with leukemia. Regenerative cells have also been used for tissue grafts to treat diseases or injury to the bone, skin, and even the eye’s surface. Many significant clinical trials involving regenerative cells are in progress for countless other conditions, and researchers continue to investigate new areas using regenerative cells in medicine.
The typical image we think of when we think of arthritis is someone elderly bent over with discomfort in their hands and knees, but in reality, any joint can be affected by this disease. The Arthritis Foundation reports that roughly 50 million adults and 300,000 children have a type of arthritis, the onset becoming more likely with age. Arthritis is not a singular disease but is a wide-range category that includes an extensive array of conditions.
When it comes to osteoarthritis, which is arthritis, when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down, the Center for Disease Control reports that roughly 30 million US adults are affected. Osteoarthritis can cause awful joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness. In some cases, it can also reduce function, and many people cannot do daily tasks or go to work.
Doctors will traditionally recommend knee surgery when it comes to osteoarthritis. At an older age, surgery can mean more extended downtime compared to a young person. Fortunately, there is an alternative to surgery. If you have not found a treatment that can provide pain relief, the doctors at Advanced Joint Pain Relief and Pain Management Center of Irvine in Irvine may be able to help you.
