Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
What Is Rheumatoid Arthritis? Done by me
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease. Our joints are attacked by our own immune system. It causes inflammatory reaction in the lining of our joints (the synovium). As a result, our joints become red, warm, swollen, and painful.
In general, it affacts both side, i.e. symmetrical, such as both hands, both wrists, or both knees. If not treated in time, It can affect other body parts and systems, including eyes, heart, lungs, skin, blood vessels, and more.
There is no cure currently. The traditional treatment includes medication treatment and non-drug treatment. Medication treatment has anti-inflammatory medication and modified medication. Non-drug treatment has physical therapy, acupuncture, steroid injection and surgery. Regenerative medicine therapy with stem cell is a new breakthrough and it can be more effective.

Stem Cell Therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease of which the musculoskeletal system is compromised by an abnormal immune response. Joints in the body are lined with a thin membrane called the synovium. In a patient with RA, these membranes are attacked by their own immune system causing a variety of painful and potentially debilitating symptoms. The inflammation resulting from the attack causes fluid to build-up within the joints, irritation, wearing down of the cartilage between bones, and swelling. Rheumatoid Arthritis is considered a chronic disorder, meaning there is currently no cure.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a degenerative disease in which the severity, progression, and symptoms affect each patient differently. While some patients gradually develop symptoms, others may experience a rapid progression of symptoms. As the symptoms worsen, so does the damage to the membrane lining the joints. When the lining expands with inflammation, erosion of the bone can occur leading to bone damage. Although RA is mainly associated with the destruction of the body’s joints, it can occasionally affect the skin, eyes, nerves, and even lead to other conditions such as pulmonary fibrosis, renal damage, and heart damage.
The research for a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis required two approaches. The first aspect is preventing the abnormal immune response, the sole reason for the attack and its damaging results. The second is to repair the damage by replacing the cells damaged and those plagued with inflammation throughout the synovium lining problematic joint areas. Medications available today are designed to address the first approach by delaying or suppressing the unusual immune response. Currently, there is no cure for RA nor are there medications or traditional treatments that will effectively replace the cells damaged by this disease.
for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Extensive research and breakthrough technology have brought forth new advancements in medicine, Adult stem cell therapy is a regenerative procedure created to potentially repair and replace diseased tissues in the body. Past treatments have shown that stem cells not only have the potential to regenerate the lost or damaged synovium tissues but also have the ability to temporarily modulate the immune system, disabling the abnormal attack.
These regenerative therapies help the body’s natural healing process work faster and more effectively. These advancements in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis work to fully regenerate missing or damaged tissue that the body would not ordinarily regrow.
Stem cell therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis helps replenish the deteriorated cells and achieve relief from the variety of complications associated with the condition. By modulating one’s immune system and aiding the body’s natural healing process work faster and more effectively, stem cell therapy has shown the potential for improvement in the following symptoms:
Reduction of inflammation in joints
Reduction or elimination of stiffness
Increased range of motion
Reduction or elimination of fatigue
Reduction or elimination of joint pain
Reduction or elimination of swelling
Our physicians are confident in knowing the potential of stem cell therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis to improve one’s quality of life. While there is currently no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, our methods can assist in gaining beneficial results that have shown to improve the life and health of those looking to manage their condition and symptoms. By using stem cell therapy, an alternative is available for those who have not responded to typical drug treatment or traditional procedures showing less than optimal results. With
