Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease

Rheumatoid Arthritis is very common in the United States and more common in women than in men - as more as three times. This disease can afflict any race at any age. Sometimes it seems to have a genetic factor in many families. It appears most commonly between the ages 40-60. In addition, it can appear in children. It can affect many members of a family, but also the symptoms can vary much from person to person.

With all the advances in medicine today, the cause of this disease is still unknown. Worldwide studies and research continues to be done to see if the cause for the illness is found. There have been suggestions of influence of a virus, or other causes, but nothing has been proven that will support these theories. However, despite what causes it, it is known that the immune system reacts by the trigger and the immune cells become active therefore releasing chemical messengers. Stem cell therapy may help rheumatoid arthritis patients in this area. Orthopedic and stem cell therapy centers like "The Institute of Regenerative & Molecular Orthopaedics" can help the affected individual by combining stem cell therapy and orthopedic therapy and methods. This hybrid approach will be able to treat the condition in a more wholesome way and provide better relief than traditional methods.
