Arthritis and Gardening

Arthritis is a degenerative disease characterized by inflammation of the joint and its surrounding tissue. In the U.S., it affects over 50 million people and is the leading cause of some disabilities.. Arthritis patients may experience the following symptoms:

  • Persistent Pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Difficulty in movement i.e. flexing fingers or joints

 

These symptoms can make gardening a daunting task vs. an enjoyable activity. Stiffness in the joints makes bending much more difficult, and limited motion with your fingers makes handling tools troublesome.

 

How Does Stem Cell Treatment Work?

If performing your normal daily routine becomes painful or difficult, speak with Dr. Burke, one of the highest rated orthopedic doctors, regarding stem cell therapy for arthritis. An initial consultation needs to be scheduled to determine if a patient is a good candidate for the treatment to ensure it will be effective and successful..

Stem cell injections work by allowing healthy cells to enter the area of pain. According to the most recent research, the healthy cells begin the healing and regenerative process of the arthritic joint, transforming into the tissue your body needs.

The results are:

  • Reduced inflammation
  • Reduced stiffness
  • Improvement in range of motion

 

This allows patients to resume pain-free gardening activities within the first few days of treatment. There is no downtime, although rest is recommended. You are able to resume normal activities, like gardening, after the first 2 days. When compared to the recovery weeks needed after surgery, stem cell injections provide a promising alternative for arthritis patients. Research has led to effective methods of stem cell therapy that can help. At Dr. Burke Orthopedics, we utilize stem cell injections to help patients get back to a pain-free life as quickly as possible.
