Healthy Knee Joint Vs. Arthritic Knee Joint

According to the National Institute of Health, Arthritis is a general term used to describe more than 100 different diseases that cause pain and loss of joint function. Arthritis is a disease of the joints that may be caused by trauma, infection, congenital defects, overuse or wear and tear.

Sports Injuries or Wear and Tear

So, what do you do when you’re an active person who has been left with arthritic knees as a result of sports injuries or wear and tear? Is there any way to avoid the pain, swelling and immobility? Or is it just something you have to learn to live with?

Regenerative Therapy

Fortunately, Regenerative Medicine offers hope for people with damaged tissues like knees. Stem cells can now be used to regenerate damaged knee cartilage and regenerate new joint tissue. The stem cells work by attaching themselves to damaged tissues, which then causes the stem cells to transform into cartilage and other types of soft tissues in the body. This new tissue then helps repair the area of damage in the patient’s knees.


Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis in adults, but it doesn’t occur in children or teens. Rheumatoid arthritis is more likely to strike younger people—especially women—who are at least 20 years old but can develop as early as their teens. There are other types of arthritis that have more unusual causes, such as gout (inflamed joints due to crystal buildup) and lupus (chronic inflammation due to the body’s immune system attacking itself).
