Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are known to have a potential for articular cartilage regeneration. Mesenchymal stem cells have the capacity to differentiate into a variety of connective tissue cells including bone, cartilage, tendon, muscle and adipose tissue.
Symptoms associated with the following conditions possibly treated by Stem cell injections for osteoarthritis:
- Labral tears of the hip and shoulder
- Ligament injuries
- Degenerative disc disease
- Biceps tendonitis
Recent research demonstrates that articular cartilage may be able to be repaired via percutaneous introduction of mesenchymal stem cells. Know more about Mesenchymal stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis .
