Common arthritis joint symptoms include inflammation, swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. The symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe. They may stay the same for years but might progress or worsen over time. Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, such as knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as the joints.
The typical symptomatic therapy for musculoskeletal system pathology consists of non-steroidal and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs relieve pain, eliminate inflammation in the joints, but do not promote the recovery of the affected cartilage tissue. The only proven method that can reverse the joint degeneration is stem cell injections for arthritis which has been successfully used in highly reputable European clinics for years. Stem cell therapy is a powerful tool, which may help to improve the quality of life for people suffering with arthritis.
