Stem Cell Therapy For Arthritis in Mexico
Mexico has become a medical destination for Americans because of the easy access to quality medical procedures, including stem cell therapy.
This doesn't mean the patient shouldn't research on the stem cell therapy provider, it's important you check if the provider is regulated to ensure they follow high medical standards.
For arthritis, stem cell therapy in Mexico can have an improvement in the patient's quality of life.
Arthritis is a progressive joint disease, it affects soft connective tissues compromising the function of joints, shoulders, knees and more. Arthritis is very common in middle age people and elderly, although some young people are vulnerable too and it’s the leading cause of disability in America. There are 50 million adults and 300 000 children suffering from the symptoms of arthritis in America alone.
The symptoms of arthritis are swelling, pain, stiffness and mobility impairment to some extent. These symptoms are more likely to worsen dramatically over time if they’re left untreated, deteriorating also the patient’s overall health.
For most stem cell therapy providers, this means the longer the patient takes to choose stem cell therapy the slower will be the regeneration, although thanks to the personalization of GIOSTAR’s stem cell therapy patients with decades suffering from arthritis can slow down the deterioration and ease symptoms faster.
Stem Cell Therapy for Joints, Shoulders, and Knees
What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are the base cells for every organ and tissue in our bodies. Every tissue is developed from a group of stem cells that form after fertilization. They have the remarkable potential to develop into many cell types in the body during early life and growth, including cartilage in joints, shoulders, and knees.
How Does Stem Cells Work?
Stem cells can divide to become any cell, they can be lead to replenish the part of the body that needs new functional cells to repair tissues or blood vessels, make new cartilage, replace lost nerve cells with healthy ones, and also adapt to the properties of resident healthy cells to start the lost functions that have been compromised by the disease or injury

Now the adult body can run out of stem cells to repair itself, because of aging, degenerative diseases or both. In Arthritis, the deterioration can exhaust the usage of stem cells to regenerate cartilage tissue, leaving the body unprotected for more damage and pain.
Stem cell therapy can be applied:
- Intravenous (IV): Stem cells are injected into the bloodstream with mannitol to expand blood volumes in the central nervous system to ensure they reach the affected area.
- Intrathecal Administration: Through this procedure, stem cells are infused into the cerebrospinal fluid through the subarachnoid spaces of the spinal canal.
- Locally: Stem Cells are surgically delivered in the affected area by endoscopy or guided by fluoroscopy.
Stem cell therapy is not for everybody, sometimes the health deterioration can be so bad that although stem cells can have an improvement, it’s not according to the expectations of the patient.
