Anyone that suffers from arthritis will know that the pain and discomfort of such a condition can be unrelenting. As arthritis is a condition which affects the joints - i.e. the fingers, wrists, knees, ankles, hips etc. - ordinary tasks, and sometimes even basic movement, can feel like a Herculean task. It is a condition which the NHS approximate leaves 10 million people in the UK alone struggling on a daily basis.
Up until now, arthritis was considered a purely degenerative condition; a condition for which sufferers were only offered methods of management rather than cure. Now, however, thanks to Stem Cell research, we can do a great deal to physically revert the arthritic degeneration process. By locating those damaged, suffering tissues and rebuilding them from within, what once was a one-way street can now become a journey right the way back to your physical prime.
This, is the brilliance of Stem Cell treatment.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
While most common in women over the age of 40, and those who are genetically predisposed, arthritis can impact anyone, and is a result of eroded cartilage and inflammation in the joints and surrounding connective tissue. Symptoms of arthritis might include: redness, a sensation of stiffness/tightness in the joint, swelling, restricted movement, muscle weakness - and in severe cases - ulcers, visibly contorted joints, and potentially brain fog or vision problems. Many, in fact, find the worsening of their symptoms to be quite frightening, and express concern about what the future may hold for them.
Stem Cell treatment specifically targets these symptoms by dosing damaged joints with healthy, developing cells which can grow into much-needed cartilage that acts as cushioning, suppress inflammation which is causing pain, and even release cytokines (special proteins) which drastically slow down arthritic degeneration.
Healthy, fully-functioning joints rely on a matrix of connective tissues to facilitate movement, offer support and provide shock absorption. This means that for a joint to be in prime condition, it requires healthy cartilage, tendons, ligaments, & membranes (for lubrication). Wear and tear of these natural resources can lead to arthritis.
As rheumatoid arthritis treatment, Stem Cell treatment functions primarily as a means of restoring the body's immune system. This is because rheumatoid arthritis is a result of protective swelling of the synovium (the outer covering of the joint). Eventually, this swelling can spread through the joint and lead to both bone and cartilage breakdown.
As osteoarthritis treatment, on the other hand, Stem Cells instead target the regeneration of the smooth cartilage lining, tendons and ligaments. This is because those with osteoarthritis see a gradual depletion of the connective tissue which acts as a protective barrier, which eventually leads to the painful grating of the bones.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Stem Cells are the raw materials of the blood work from which all other cells of the body are generated. To put it in extremely simple terms, treatment for arthritis works by replenishing the damaged tissues surrounding the joints.
This is possible as Stem Cells are highly versatile, and - under the right conditions - have the ability to multiply and take the form of different cells around the body where injected. Medical imaging allows practitioners to offer precise treatment to these very specific damaged tissues, and take the place of those which are no longer functioning, thus rebuilding the structures surrounding the joints and restoring function where depletion has taken a toll.
Stem Cell treatment is a highly advanced, groundbreaking approach to degenerative conditions. It can provide unmatched improvements to those that have suffered with many crippling conditions for many years.
Specifically in the realms of arthritis, however, it can be used to help those affected by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and gout, with all varieties seeing an astonishing reversal of symptoms and subsequent boost in quality of life.
This is because Stem Cells are exceedingly versatile and can be used to treat arthritis the body over. Whether you are suffering with arthritis of the hands, wrists, feet, ankles, knees, hips, shoulders or elbows - Stem Cells can, and will, make a remarkable impact.
Patients can experience longterm relief from arthritis following Stem Cell treatment.
This is because it helps encourage and build brand new tissues that will henceforth function as if they were yours all along. That means relief from arthritic pain, inflammation, stiffness and further degradation indefinitely.
There has been over 30 years of research conducted into the safety and efficacy of Stem Cell treatment, so patients should feel in the safest of hands when undergoing Stem cell therapy for arthritis.
In addition to this, donor cells are always thoroughly vetted and screened for infection, disease or abnormality before use and are both harvested and administered only by highly-trained specialists.
Patients are always relieved to hear that treatment also runs a 0% risk of rejection or allergic response.
Stem Cells are harvested from a nominated donor, and can be found in either adipose cells (fat), bone marrow, or umbilical lining (as is the case with embryonic stem cells.
Whilst some people feel more comfortable making use of their own adult stem cells for treatment, others may pursue embryonic stem cells for their significantly-higher concentration. They are harvested very soon after birth in a GMP-regulated laboratory, and are always thoroughly screened for infection, genetic abnormality and disease in the lab prior to use.
Patients needn't worry about experiencing any pain whilst donating or receiving stem cells for treatment, as local anaesthetic is always used to ensure the patient is most comfortable throughout.
Recovery from Stem Cell treatment is swift, and should begin to alleviate arthritic pain relatively quickly.
During the first few days after treatment, you may notice some minor bruising, swelling, redness and tenderness around the injection sites, although this is shortlived. We simply ask that you refrain from air travel for a minimum of 5 days to allow the initial healing stages to occur without interference.
Specific aftercare will depend on your treatment area, although your practitioner will be more than happy to provide thorough instructions tailored to you following treatment.
