Relapsing polychondritis is an uncommon and chronic disorder that may be able to be helped with our non-invasive Stem Cell Therapy treatment.
Relapsing polychondritis is a chronic disorder that initiates recurrent episodes of cartilage inflammation all throughout the body. Those with the disorder are often noted for having red or inflamed ear lobes.
The cause of relapsing polychondritis is unknown, but it’s suspected to be an autoimmune disorder, which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy tissues and cells. It may also be a result of a genetic, lifestyle or environmental factor. Relapsing polychondritis is a series of painful inflammation outbreaks. It targets cartilage all around the body including the ears, nose, joints, spine and windpipe. Even the eyes, heart, and blood vessels may be affected because they consist of a biomaterial that is similar to cartilage.

I couldn't walk through the Seattle airport, it's a long walk between terminals and I had to ask for wheelchair assistance and that was pretty traumatic for me. What is wrong with me that I can'e even walk that distance. So just to be able to move is an incredible thing. I had the injection directly in my knee, the injection is not a big deal. I think after a couple of months I could see enough improvement that I thought it would be helpful to do this again simply because I was having hip pain and neck pain also on that right side. So it was just really a good choice for me and I am so glad I did, it's really made a difference. I would definitely recommend it.
“What a difference the treatment made in 4 weeks! Things that we used to enjoy, we can do again. Balance is better, can walk better – with more energy, vitality, spunk and enthusiasm. We both have so much more freedom and movement without joints hurting and the intense pain. It’s a new life!“
