In a recent video by Dr. Joy Kong, she delves deep into the topic of joint degeneration and how stem cell therapy can be a game-changer in addressing this prevalent issue. Here’s a detailed summary of the video’s content:

Understanding Joint Degeneration

Joint degeneration is a common issue that many face, especially as they age. By the time individuals reach their 50s, the degeneration is often not due to sports injuries or acute injuries.

Even younger individuals in their 30s and 40s can experience injuries that don’t heal as effectively. This lack of healing can be attributed to the body’s diminished regenerative potential, which can be influenced by factors like poor self-care or underlying inflammation.

Osteoarthritis and Inflammation

Osteoarthritis is a prime example of an inflammatory disease. The inflammation isn’t just localized to the joint; it’s a reflection of the body’s overall state. Addressing joint issues, especially in larger joints, requires a comprehensive approach.

Large joints have a slow rate of exchange between the blood and the synovial fluid that bathes the joint. This slow exchange means that treatments introduced into the bloodstream might take months to reach the joint space.

A Dual Approach to Treatment

Dr. Kong emphasizes the importance of a dual approach to treatment, especially for larger joints. The outer one-third of the cartilage is nourished by the blood supply, while the inner two-thirds derive nourishment from the synovial fluid. By addressing both these areas, a more complete healing can be achieved.

Intravenous (IV) treatments can interact with the immune system, reducing inflammation throughout the body and enhancing the body’s regenerative potential. This systemic approach, combined with localized treatments, can be particularly effective for chronic joint issues.
