Traditional medicine has viewed osteoarthritis as an incurable progressive process.
Recent research shows that this mindset not necessarily correct. There are many processes that may be at work causing the osteoarthritis. Genetics, for one, is now known to play a part. Joint trauma unquestionably leads to accelerated of arthritis.

Also, surgery is traumatic to joints as well.  More surgeries performed on one body part enhances this process. Research is also pointing to, and shedding much-needed light on, the regenerative capabilities of the body. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy are forms of regenerative medicine that have been used to deal with osteoarthritis, to prevent the natural progression of arthritis. It has been established that anti-inflammatories and cortisone injections do not alter the progression of arthritis. The use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy may be a viable option in treating arthritis as regenerative medicine continues to emerge.
