Osteoporosis is the bodies failure to maintain tissue in the bones, causing them to become weak and fragile. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, around 54 million Americans have osteoporosis and low bone mass, which puts them at risk of getting osteoporosis. NOF also states that around one in two women and up to one in four men age 50 and older will break a bone due to osteoporosis. Stem Cells have yet to become a specialized cell in the body that contribute to a specific part or tissue, doctors are able to pull out the stem cells and relocate them to promote natural healing in damaged areas
Recent development has been made to improve this disease by removing senescent cells in mice. Senescent cells are cell that do not split or support the tissues they are part of, instead they release an assortment of potentially harmful chemical signals that cause nearby cells to enter the same senescent state. The idea is to increase the numbers of bone-building stem cells and replacing those lost with age is a plausible approach. Research for this method is far from done because it only addresses one part of osteoporosis that causes bones to deteriorate. It’s unlikely that replacing missing stem cells alone will solve the issue, as the underlying causes, such as senescent cell buildup and subsequent inflammation, are not being talked about. It is possible that the combination of senescent cell removal therapies and stem cell therapy could be an effective force to help improve osteoporosis.
If you are dealing with discomfort from osteoporosis or any other type of bone deterioration and have not found a therapy that can offer pain relief, Platelet-Rich Plasma injections may help to improve your osteoporosis pain.
