In order for joints to move smoothly they must contain an adequate amount of synovial fluid, which acts as a lubricant and shock absorber. Osteoarthritis causes synovial fluid to lose its properties by depletion of a component called hyaluronan.
Regenerative medicine-based therapy is increasingly being recommended in the management of various orthopedic conditions due to its diverse benefits
Regenerative orthopedics is a subspecialty of regenerative medicine that focuses on regeneration of lost tissue, acceleration of healing, and pain relief to treat orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, low back pain, joint injuries, ligament injuries, sprains and strains etc.
