Conditions Managed With Stem Cell Therapy
Knee and joint pain is not uncommon but chronic pain in the joints can have a serious effect on your quality of life.
Chronic pain in the knee joints can have a large impact on your ability to perform every-day tasks that would usually be simple, such as walking, sitting, bending, etc. When the joints are healthy they can endure the pressure caused by typical daily activity, however this status can often be compromised by various issues. Unfortunately during the ageing process the joints can’t handle as much stress as they once did, which is when osteoarthritis can occur.
The knee is the hinge that allows movement back and forth in one direction, assisting our leg’s ability to function and balance. Hinge joints also occur in the arms, fingers and toes but they differ from the hinge joint in the knees. The knees collaborate with the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia/fibula (shin) during the motion process. The collaboration of these joints allows our bodies to perform tasks such as bending over, kneeling, jumping, kicking, crossing legs etc.
Osteoarthritis in the Knee
The stem cell therapy procedure is virtually painless and a very effective method to treating osteoarthritis. The non-invasive stem cell therapy procedure is an alternative to joint replacements, which can be quite daunting. At Brisbane Regeneration we’d rather look at the source of your pain and treat it with what we consider a more long-term solution. For example, your joint pain is often the result of damaged tissue in the area, so by replacing that tissue with stem cells, we can assist the body in healing that area naturally. Using resources from your own body means you are less likely to have an allergic reaction or reject the substance. We don’t insert any foreign or artificial materials throughout the procedure, which is why we believe stem cell treatment can be so successful in osteoarthritis patients.
At Brisbane Regeneration, we provide you with a tailored treatment plan to ensure we achieve the best results possible for you.
Stem cell therapy can also help with those who suffer from other knee conditions
- Meniscal tears
- Patella Tendinopathy
- Patella Femoral Syndrome
- Chondromalacia Patella
- Partially torn major ligament (ACL/MCL/ACL)
- Osteochondral defects
The hips in particular can have a significant impact on the entire body’s ability to function, as they carry most of the body’s weight with each step.
When the hips’ ability to function is compromised, a ripple effect of pain can occur throughout the body. Pain can spread to the thigh, buttocks, inner and outer hip, and groin.
Osteoarthritis in the Hip
Some common signs of osteoarthritis in the hips are:
- Crunching and popping sounds
- Loss of function in hips
- Stiffness with inactivity
The hips can incur various symptoms that reflect osteoarthritis disease. Hip crunching and popping sounds throughout motion can be a sign that there is little to no cartilage left between the joints. Limping is another sign of osteoarthritis as walking can be painful and the body will compensate by limping or lurching to avoid putting pressure on the hip. Range of motion will also be decreased, making daily activities such as bending, harder than usual. Some people find that staying active through the day helps with the stiffness, as cases of osteoarthritis cause joints to become less mobile after long periods of sitting, or sleeping.
How can Stem Cell Therapy assist hip pain?
At Brisbane Regeneration, we are passionate about treating joint pain with stem cell treatment, through use of our advanced technology. Stem cell therapy is effective in treating joint pain as it aims to assist the body’s ability to heal the area, rather than replacing anything. Our cell harvesting technology allows Dr Sami to source valuable stromal cells that can later help the body heal. We will extract adipose (fat) from the body during a minor liposuction procedure that can then be reintroduced to the affected area in a more concentrated form. Once the adipose has been extracted, Dr Sami performs the process called Ultrasonic Cavitation Separation that separates the fat from vital cells. He then uses a device called a flow cytometer to examine the quality of the stromal cells, their count, and viability. This step is essential in creating the optimal formulation and dosage of stem cell products for procedure. Once the adipose is purified and examined, it can be inserted into the inflamed area and begin repairing damage. The hips need cartilage in order to perform daily tasks with ease, which is why Brisbane Regeneration are so passionate about assisting people whose lives have been affected by the inconvenience of osteoarthritis in the hips.
