Research shows that stem cell therapy has many benefits for arthritis patients, especially those who suffer from advanced stages of the condition.

Arthritis is a condition involving inflammation of the joints, swelling and pain. Over time, joints can become weak, and the pain chronic. There are several types of arthritis, the most common being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
