Osteoarthritis (OA) is a very common condition which can affect any joint in the body. The most likely to affect the joints are knees and feet which bear most of our body weight and hands and shoulders which are used lot in everyday life.
Osteoarthritis is basically a degenerative disease in which the cartilage covering the joint is damaged by wear and tear. This situation can be worsening day by day if not treated properly. There can be pain, stiffness, swelling and immobility in day to day’s work.
Cell therapy could potentially help repair damaged joints in multiple ways, including modulating the immune response, delivering cells that can be directed to form cartilage, stimulating patient’s own cells regeneration.
