Osteoporosis: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment with Stem Cells

Osteoporosis is commonly referred to as the “silent disease”, because bone loss can happen slowly over a long period of time without any warning symptoms, causing bones to become weak and brittle. Frequently people are not aware they have osteoporosis until they suffer from a broken bone, loss of height or develop a curve in their back causing them to hunch over. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, approximately 10 million Americans have osteoporosis and another 44 million Americans have osteopenia or low bone mass.

The likelihood of developing osteoporosis depends in part on how much bone mass you accumulate in your youth. Bone is a living tissue that is in a constant state of renewal. When you are young, your body makes new bone faster than it breaks old bone down and your bone mass

Stem Cells & Osteoporosis Treatment

The use of stem cells for tissue regeneration has raised great hope in various fields of medicine, including musculoskeletal disorders such as Osteoporosis. Stem cell therapy for osteoporosis potentially augments lost mineral density by either, increasing the numbers of, or restoring the function of, resident stem cells that can proliferate and differentiate into bone-forming cells, reducing the susceptibility of fractures. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities. However, stem cell treatments are legal in Costa Rica. Stem cell therapy promotes the regeneration of new bone and connective tissue. This regenerative process uses stem cells to rebuild and strengthen bones, decreasing the risk of bone

Stem cell injection reverses osteoporosis in mice

Mice with osteoporosis experienced new bone growth 6 months after an injection of stem cells, offering hope that this chronic disease may one day be reversible. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities.
