What is Arthritis

In today’s blog we will be breaking down 5 ways regenerative medicine may improve your arthritic neck. Before we break down neck Arthritis, we first need to learn that Arthritis is the degeneration of a joint that can lead to inflammation and pain. While you may have heard the term neck Arthritis, did you know its scientific name is Cervical Spondylosis? This condition, Cervical Spondylosis, is extremely common, affecting over 85% of people over age 60. While some say this condition may be caused by aging, many other factors are at large such as disc degeneration and bone spurs.

Arthritis in Your Neck

While experiencing many painful symptoms in your neck, keep in mind arthritis may be your root cause. How does this happen you ask? Well, If you experience Arthritis damage at the top of your spine, in your first, second, or third vertebrae, headache pain can be a resulting symptom. The sensitive nerves connect your scalp to the top areas of your spine, so as your vertebrae deteriorate, you can feel referred pain in your neck, head, or jaw. The spinal canal may narrow, pressing on the spinal cord and nerves to the arms. This condition subsequently results in you feeling pain. Injuries can also cause pressure on the spinal cord. The resulting pain may range from mild discomfort to severe and crippling. However, your pain may be alleviated through our regenerative medicine therapies.

How Regenerative Medicine helps Arthritis Pain

According to a review of several peer-reviewed studies, regenerative medicine has been found to reduce inflammation and improve function in patients with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of arthritis. Regenerative medicine seeks to replace tissue that has been damaged by trauma, vs. the current clinical strategy that focuses primarily on treating the symptoms.

The promising field of Regenerative Medicine is working to restore structure and function of damaged tissues for joint pain. It is also working to create solutions for joint injuries that become permanently damaged. The goal of this approach is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases.
