Joint Pain

What is joint pain?

Joint pain can be inflammation, discomfort, and pain from any part of a joint. That includes bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and even muscles. Usually when people say they have joint pain, it means that there is some pain and inflammation from the joint capsule itself such as the knee joint. Some of the most common causes of joint pain are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and trauma.

What is osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease and is the most common type of joint disease in the USA. It is when the cartilage protecting the bone wears down over time or with extensive use. It is very common in the hip, knee, and thumb joints. The symptoms can include stiffness, soreness, pain, and less flexibility at that joint. This is the ‘wear and tear’ type of arthritis.

Typically, conventional treatment includes over the counter anti-inflammation and pain killers like ibuprofen, aleve, and other NSAIDs. If that doesn’t reduce the pain, there are series of conventional medical injections such as steroid and gel synovial fluid-like injections.
Some research is suggesting that by taking these NSAIDs, people can actually be preventing their joints from recovering. In the European journal Orthopedics Today, they discovered that NSAIDs and COX-2 inhibitors can impair tendon, bone, and cartilage repair.

While there is more research to be conducted regarding pain killers and joint health, there are things that we can be doing to help our joints recover and regenerate their cartilage.

Studies have shown that stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis of joints can be very effective in not only improving symptoms such as pain reduction and greater range of motion but also in repairing cartilage loss. They have done studies and MRI images of knee joints before and after stem cell therapy showing cartilage healing rates improved compared to those that didn’t receive stem cell injections. Best of all, there were no adverse reactions during treatment. Pas HI, Winters M, Haisma HJ, et al .Stem cell injections in knee osteoarthritis: a systematic review of the literature. Br J Sports Med 2017;51:1125-1133.

Another study showed that mesenchymal stem cells were especially helpful in reducing all osteoarthritis knee symptoms for all the patients that received stem cells for over a year but did not show any significant MRI changes of the knee joint itself.
