In this video, Dr. Brandon Feinerman speaks about Osteoarthritis and how it is treated with stem cell therapy
WATCH: Dr. Feinerman

Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative process and the most common form of arthritis affecting millions of people. The protective cartilage of the joints wears down over time, which in turn causes the bones to rub against each other and thereby causing pain and inflammation.

It can affect any joints in the body, more commonly in the knees, shoulder, hips and spine.

Common symptoms include, pain, stiffness, and loss of flexibility, thereby making it difficult to move the joint and affecting daily activities.

Common risk factors include older age, gender [more common in women] obesity, sedentary life style, and previous joint injuries.

Treatment includes oral pain medications, anti inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, and intra-articular injections. Replacements of joints are the ultimate option. All these measures can help, though none of these treatments reverse the underlying process.

Stem cell therapy has shown to regenerate the cartilage, thereby decreasing inflammation and improving the pain. Lifestyle changes include exercise, proper diet, and avoidance of extra weight. These factors are all important for the continuation of improvement as well.
