Your joints carry you through life. They give your body motion and allow you to do all the things you love, but unfortunately, your joints are susceptible to injury, pain, and stiffness just like any other part of your body.
It’s normal to feel sore after engaging in strenuous activity. Those mild aches and pains should get better within a couple of days, but about one third of American adults have persistent joint pain.
Persistent joint pain isn’t triggered by new or unusual activity, and it doesn’t go away on its own. Joint pain that becomes chronic may be a sign of arthritis or other degenerative joint condition, and it can erode your quality of life.
The good news? Stem cell therapy offers a revolutionary way to treat joint pain: it regenerates tissue around your joints to relieve symptoms and help you feel better.
Daniel Moghadam, MD, and our team at Modern Aesthetica specialize in regenerative medicine for joint pain, and it’s time to find out if stem cell therapy is right for you.
Joints are some of the most complex parts of your musculoskeletal system. Each joint contains at least two bones, along with cartilage, muscle, tendons, and other connective tissues holding them together.
Because joints are so complex and they get so much use in daily life, they are particularly susceptible to inflammation, injury, and pain. Anyone can suffer joint pain, and your risk increases as you get older.
In fact, osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder and it affects 32.5 million American adults. Osteoarthritis is also called “wear-and-tear” arthritis, because it develops with years of overuse.
Osteoarthritis develops when the joint cartilage between bones deteriorates, leaving bones to grind against each other. The most common symptoms include pain, aching, stiffness, swelling, and decreased joint flexibility.
Osteoarthritis and many other types of joint pain develop when cartilage and protective tissues deteriorate. Stem cell therapy addresses the cause of your joint pain and stimulates healthy cell regeneration around joints to relieve symptoms.
Dr. Moghadam and our team offer stem cell therapy for:
Stem cells are unique, because they can transform into any type of cell in your body. When used in stem cell therapy for joint pain, the cells grow into joint tissue (like cartilage) to help your body rebuild a healthier joint.
If you have joint pain, Dr. Moghadam and our team start with a comprehensive exam. We discuss your symptoms and your medical history to determine what’s causing your pain, and we can help you determine if stem cell therapy is a good option for you.
Many people with osteoarthritis and chronic joint pain find regenerative therapies like stem cell therapy offer an effective alternative to pain medication, surgery, or other invasive treatments.
If you choose stem cell therapy, we use stem cells from your own body for maximum efficacy. We take a sample of your blood, bone marrow, or abdominal fat tissue, then separate the stem cells in a centrifuge.
We prepare a solution with stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to accelerate your body’s natural healing power. Then, we inject the solution into your painful joints. After treatment, the stem cells start working to replace, repair, and rebuild your joint tissue.
Stem cell therapy can reduce joint pain and increase mobility by tapping into your body’s ability to heal itself. Find out if regenerative medicine is right for you with a consultation at Modern Aesthetica. Call our Santa Monica, California, office at 310-975-3918 or send us a message online.
