"What You Don’t Know About Arthritis”
"What You Don’t Know About Arthritis”

Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, occurs when the cartilage in a joint – the slick, cushioning surface on the ends of bones – wears away and bone rubs against bone, causing pain, swelling and stiffness. Over time, joints can lose strength and pain may become chronic.

Unfortunately, the disease is progressive and traditional treatments – drugs, cortisone shots and surgery – are often ineffective, physically debilitating and painful. To make matters worse, many people believe there is no cure for osteoarthritis and they just have to learn to live with it.

According to Dr. Jason Kouri, Medical Director of Neuropathy & Pain Centers of Texas, advances in medical science have proven this belief wrong. The cure for osteoarthritis lies in the use of stem cells to regenerate or rebuild the cartilage destroyed by the disease. In his talk, "What You Don’t Know About Arthritis,” Dr. Kouri will share with your members:

  • The differences between degenerative and regenerative medicine in treating osteoarthritis
  • What stem cells are,  where they come from and what they do when placed in an affected joint
  • How even advanced cases of osteoarthritis are typically reversed after a single treatment
