What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis in the U.S. In most cases, over time, cartilage in joints breaks down and joints have bone-on-bone contact. This is when Osteoarthritis symptoms begin to occur. Osteoarthritis is most commonly found in the:
· Hands and fingers
· Lower back
Wrists, elbows, shoulders, and ankles can also be affected by OA, but this occurs less frequently. When OA is found in these joints, there may have been a history of injury or stress to that joint.
What causes Osteoarthritis?
There can be multiple causes of the breakdown of a joint’s cartilage, known as Osteoarthritis, such as:
· Being Overweight
· Old age
· Joint injury
· Continual stressing of joints from certain jobs or sports activities
What type of stem cells are used and why?
TruStem Cell Therapy provides access to treatment that utilizes a patient’s stem cells isolated from their own bone marrow. There are multiple inherent benefits afforded by the utilization of bone marrow derived stem cells as Bone marrow (BM) and bone marrow components function in various diverse, innate therapeutic capacities.
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), found within BM, are the body’s source of most cells found in the peripheral or circulating blood. These include red blood cells and white blood cells (such as monocytes). Evidence suggests that BM-derived monocytes may act to improve certain musculoskeletal conditions. In addition to HSCs, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are also contained within BM. Evidence suggests MSCs can enter the circulating blood during injury and have been shown to readily home to areas of injury or inflammation. Once at these damaged tissue sites, MSCs can exert both protective cellular effects believed to be critical in many musculoskeletal conditions.
What steps are involved in receiving treatment through TruStem Cell Therapy?
How are stem cells administered back into Osteoarthritis patients through TruStem Cell Therapy?
Osteoarthritis patients who receive stem cell therapy through us can receive systemic and targeted administration methods:
Systemic IV infusion of their stem cells to fully saturate the entire body.

Can this treatment cure Osteoarthritis?
It is important for patients and caregivers to understand that current therapies, including stem cell treatment, do not provide a cure for OA. However, TruStem cell therapy does have the potential to improve a patient’s quality of life by reducing symptoms and complications related to OA as well as slowing its progression.
