Rheumatoid Arthritis


 

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an inflammatory and autoimmune disease that can make you feel weak and stiff. But a solution can be found in our non-invasive Regenerative Cellular Therapy.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a destructive autoimmune disease that targets joints and ligaments. It is offset by tissue inflammation and is generally progressive in nature. At some point, it may even wear away cartilage and bone.


WHAT IS IT?

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. This means that the body’s own immune system attacks its own healthy tissue.  Although target areas like joints and ligaments are defining characteristics of rheumatoid arthritis, it can also affect other parts of the body as well.
