Arthritic pain in your ankle can cause extreme discomfort and make it impossible to walk, exercise, or even carry out simple day-to-day tasks.
There are several potential causes for ankle arthritis, but the end result is the same for sufferers – persistent pain, and a lessening of their quality of life.
Stem cell therapy for ankle arthritis offers the prospect of supporting the healing process through the regeneration of healthy tissue. Stem cells’ ability to develop healthy tissue can make a real difference for people with arthritis in all parts of the body, including the ankle.
Arthritis, and in particular osteoarthritis, which affects the bones of the human body, can develop for various reasons. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint condition that leads to the degradation of the bone and cartilage of a particular area of your body.
Symptoms of osteoarthritis can include tenderness, stiffness, and swelling – all of which can bring painful discomfort to sufferers.
Osteoarthritis in your ankle can be caused by the general wear and tear that is a side-effect of the aging process. It can have a root cause in ankle sprains or fractures, either recent or earlier in life. High arches and flat feet can lead to the development of ankle arthritis.
Anything that causes wear and tear of the protective cartilage around the ankle, which leads to friction between the bones in one of the human body’s most complex joints, can lead to ankle arthritis.
The regenerative properties of stem cells mean that their application for people suffering with ankle arthritis can support healing and lead to an improvement in their condition, and their general quality of life.
At the Stemwell Clinic, we collect umbilical cord cells from healthy volunteer donors to help us in the work we do. Those cells can be introduced to the body either through a targeted injection into the ankle area, or intravenously.
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, which means they have not yet developed to serve a particular purpose in the body. They can support the development of bone, cartilage, muscle, or ligament – whatever the body needs. Through the regeneration of healthy tissue, they can lessen inflammation and the pain suffered by those with ankle arthritis.
Within a short space of time, possibly as little as three days, you may notice a decrease in that pain, along with increased mobility. The potential for such a quick and lasting improvement in your quality of life means that stem cell therapy for ankle arthritis might be a positive course of action for you.
