Osteoarthritis is one of the most common illnesses that is characterized by severe pain and swelling in the knees and crackling sounds during movement. This occurs primarily due to the erosion of cartilage (the cushion between the bones) and drying up of the synovial fluid (the lubricant in the joint). This can be aggravated by obesity or repeated injuries.
At Plexus, we treat OA non-surgically using stem cell injections and supportive physiotherapy. Conventional treatment methods include painkillers, steroid injections, and total knee replacement surgery. However, the results shown by stem cell treatment, especially in the early stages, is highly encouraging.
