Shoulder pain can be a dull ache or make it hard to lift your arm. Whatever your symptoms, it should never be ignored. If you’re hesitating somewhere between anti-inflammatory meds and surgery, stop and consider a breakthrough alternative to surgery: regenerative medicine. It fortifies the healing power of your own body, rejuvenating and regenerating the muscles, ligaments and tendons that make up this complex part of the body.
Through careful research and experience, our doctors have developed treatments using regenerative cell therapy injections for all-natural sore shoulder relief. The therapy is safe, drug-free and nonsurgical. There is very little downtime, so you can get back to a more active life sooner.
Shoulder Pain Relief
Our shoulder pain relief treatment of choice is mesenchymal stem cells derived from the umbilical cord. Cytokines, proteins and other regenerative agents are bountiful in the cord. They are readily accepted by other bodies because the cells have not yet developed their own immune system. Certified tissue banks acquire the cords from carefully screened, consenting mothers after healthy cesarean section births.
Many types of chronic shoulder joint pain respond well to regenerative tissue therapy. They include discomfort that develops through the wear and tear of daily life. An example is pain when lifting the arm. There are several causes of this condition. One of the most common is shoulder pain from rotator cuff injury.
The rotator cuff is a mesh of muscles and tendons that covers the upper arm bone (acromion) where it meets the shoulder blade.
Shoulder pain from the rotator cuff has three main causes:
Tendinitis, in which the tendons in the cuff are irritated or damaged
Bursitis, which is an inflammation of the fluid sac (bursa) between the rotator cuff and the bone on top of your shoulder (acromion)
Impingement, which is inflammation or pressure placed on the tendons or bursa
Your shoulder joint pain may also be caused by a cartilage tear, an injury in the padding around the joint. All of these common conditions involve muscle, cartilage or tendons. When these cells are damaged or degraded, mesenchymal cells can shore them up and “teach” them how to self-heal. These regenerative cells can bring enormous relief, as the many patients we have helped can attest.
Pinched Nerve in Shoulder
Shoulder pain when lifting the arm can also be caused by a pinched nerve in the shoulder. This condition stems from an irritation or compression of the nerve that runs from the spine to the shoulder.
The culprit in shoulder arm pain could be a bone spur compressing on a spinal disc. Our doctors can give you a shoulder pain diagnosis and tell you for sure.
Shoulder Joint Pain Relief
Shoulder problems can come on suddenly as the result of trauma or gradually with age. In the skillful hands of our doctors, regenerative medicine has the potential to improve your range of motion and offer drug-free pain relief.
