What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a musculoskeletal illness that causes inflammation in the joints of the body. Joints are the part of the skeletal system where two bones are connected, such as the knee, elbow, wrists, and shoulders. Arthritis can affect children, teens, and young adults. However, it is most common in adults over the age of 30 to 40.

Arthritis can cause a variety of symptoms. Most noticeably patients with arthritis will feel pain, joint stiffness, redness, tenderness, and swelling at the site of their arthritis.

Types of Arthritis

Because there are many joints in the human body, there are over 100 types of arthritis that can affect people. However, the most common types of arthritis include:

  • Osteoarthritis - This is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs when the protective cartilage that surrounds the joint wears down over time. This type of arthritis usually affects older individuals as a result of wear and tear. It usually affects the hips, knees, hands, and spine.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis - This is a type of arthritis that is not caused by wear and tear, but rather the body's autoimmune response. The body begins to attack healthy cells, specifically in the joints, causing them to swell and be painful. Rheumatoid arthritis cannot be prevented, as it is an autoimmune disease. In addition, this type of arthritis can affect younger adults and healthy individuals alike. Genetics plays a big factor in RA.
  • Psoriatic Arthritis - Psoriatic Arthritis is linked with psoriasis. Psoriasis is a condition in which the body attacks its own skin cells causing red, itchy, and dry skin. Psoriatic arthritis is similar to rheumatoid arthritis. However fewer joints are affected in psoriatic arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis is still a painful condition that can cause swelling and tenderness at the site of the joints, such as the hands and knees.

How Regenerative Medicine Works for Arthritis Treatment

Regenerative treatment for arthritis is ushering in a new wave of methods that can aid in pain relief for people with arthritis. This regenerative treatment uses the body's own ability to heal itself in order to reduce pain caused by arthritis.

To do this, experts in regenerative medicine can use a variety of techniques aimed at introducing the body's stem cells, platelets, and amniotic fluids into the joints. These parts of the body are abundant with growth factors that can aid in the regeneration (healing) of inflamed joints. At Houston Spine and Regenerative Medicine, we offer arthritis treatment in The Woodlands and Houston using regenerative techniques.

Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy

Mesenchymal Stem cell therapy for arthritis treatment is one of the most effective arthritis pain treatment methods. Mesenchymal Stem cell therapy uses the body's stem cells, which are harvested from fat cells and injected into the inflamed joints. Mesenchymal Stem cells are unique due to their ability to convert into any cell needed by the body.

Mesenchymal Stem cells have the ability to naturally heal damaged joints. Due to the fact that mesenchymal stem cells are also different than the existing cells in the joints, mesenchymal stem cell therapy is also effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis. People with mild arthritis and advanced arthritis can benefit from mesenchymal stem cell therapy.

Connective Tissue Matrix Injections

Connective tissue matrix injections are also known as placental tissue matrix injections. The placental tissue is the tissue that comes from the placenta, which is full of regenerative properties and is part of every human being once they are born. Although this placental tissue is usually discarded, its potent growth factors and regenerative abilities make it the perfect ally for regenerative medicine.

Connective tissue matrix injections using placental tissue are injected directly into damaged joints. This helps reduce pain and immobility associated with arthritis. These injections can be used in place of traditional steroid injections, and have the power to naturally heal damaged tissues due to arthritis.
