What is regenerative medicine and why is it one of the best treatments for osteoarthritis symptoms?

One of the great evils affecting Spanish society is joint pain, which usually alerts us to the existence of osteoarthritis of the knee. Though there are many treatments that can be done to deal with this disease, this one has been placed as one of the best. We are talking about regenerative medicine, which we are going to talk about further.

Osteoarthritis of the knee affects more than 7 million people in the country, with women above the age of 50 being the most affected group. In this sense, age is one of the factors that most strongly influences the presence of these symptoms, along with overweight and obesity. Without further ado, let’s explain what regenerative medicine is and how it can help you.

Origin of osteoarthritis of the knee

The discomfort of osteoarthritis usually starts out mild to increase over time. In addition, pain may be accompanied by stiffness in the joints and difficulty in movement. That’s why it is considered a degenerative disease.

One of the easiest ways to detect this problem is by listening for a clicking sound when you bend your knee. And the prognosis worsens if a significant effort is made, since we can suffer internal effusion, which gives way to inflammation. In short, if osteoarthritis is not treated properly, the patient will have to rest for a long time and even, will not be able to continue with his normal life.

People suffering from osteoarthritis often have to change their daily routine due to pain and discomfort.

treatment with regenerative medicine

Dr. Carlos Jarabo, medical director of Clínicas Cres, explains that “treatment with regenerative medicine may be more effective than traditional therapies in reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee.” In the words of the professional, this is because “it not only addresses the symptoms, but also their origin”.

“Very good results can be achieved with regenerative medicine treatments,” says Dr. Jarabo. In addition, he points out that “early diagnosis and the correct application of therapies are important to achieve the best results.”

Dr. Carlos Jarabo highlights the benefits of regenerative medicine for these problems.

The technique is very simple and consists of infiltrating the patient’s biological material (cells or tissues) into the knee through a simple outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. “There is no chance of rejection because it is the patient’s own biological material. Plus, it doesn’t require rest, so recovery is much faster than with traditional techniques,” says Dr. Jarabo.

In this sense, it is worth noting the various applications that can be created with this technology. Although the knee is the most commonly treated joint, it is followed by the hip, shoulder and elbow. In addition to joint-type injuries, it is used in muscle and tendon injuries, such as in the case of shoulder tendinitis.

How osteoarthritis of the knee affects people’s quality of life

Dr. Jarabo assures that “the results are very positive, managing to reduce pain by up to 75%, reverse inflammation and restore joint function.” “Also in cases where the disease is very advanced, it is possible to significantly improve a patient’s quality of life if he treats chronic pain,” he says.

Dr. Jarabo of Clínicas Cres also confirms the importance of these techniques in osteoarthritis problems.
