66 year old female with long standing arthritic pain at the base of both thumbs. Symptoms flair with quilting, grasping and playing her guitar. Previous treatment with steroid injections gave minimal benefit. Left and right hand pain was and 6 and 7 out of 10 with use. After discussing treatment options, she chose to receive combined regenerative treatment with stem cells injected into the joints and PRP (platelet rich plasma) injected into the areas of arthritic bone next to the joints (she was asleep for that part!). Today, 3 months out from treatment, her pain is down to 1/10 in both hands. She has minimal, occasional soreness with grasping. She is able to play her guitar pain-free.
