Rotator Cuff Tears
Shoulder Degeneration and Arthritis
Sports activities require repetitive overhead movements
Activities like lifting weights, swimming, throwing or pitching, or any arm-swinging movements put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even regular, everyday activities such as gardening, hanging curtains, or even scrubbing the floors or walls can damage the shoulder. Often, injury to the shoulder is difficult to heal, and can easily become a recurring problem, even if the immediate pain has subsided. Once ligaments and tissues have been damaged, scar tissue and inflammation can continue to form and build. It is also common for the same injury to re-appear, and flare up at later times. Injuries to the shoulder, including sports injuries, can now be treated with non-invasive, Regenerative Medicine procedures like Regenerative Cellular Therapy. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.
Regenerative Medicine For Rotator Cuff Tears
Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint in which the ball of your upper arm bone (humorous) fits into the socket of your shoulder blade (scapula). The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles that come together as tendons forming a covering around the head of the upper humorous, firmly attaching it to the socket of the scapula. Rotator tears usually develop gradually due to stress, overuse, and natural wear and tear. People who repeatedly lift their arm overhead are more vulnerable to overuse tears. This includes athletes such as tennis players, swimmers, weight lifters, and baseball pitchers. A tear in the rotator cuff produces a lot of pain and also contributes to instability in the shoulder joint. If it is severe, there may be weakness or an inability to lift the arm. Our Regenerative Cellular Therapy treatment matrix has been fortified and enhanced with cytokines and additional natural growth factors to aid in the recovery of rotator cuff injuries. After an injection directly into the rotator cuff, these cells combine with the body’s own natural immune cells and aid the body in repairing the tear.
Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Degeneration
Degeneration of the shoulder joints is usually a progressive condition that evolves and worsens over time. Shoulder degeneration occurs when the cartilage that protects and surrounds the bones begins to wear down. Without this cushioning between the bones, movement causes friction within the joint. This friction causes pain, inflammation, and swelling and can lead to the development of bone spurs. Regenerative Cellular Therapy takes a high concentration of immune cells and uses them to target specific areas with damaged tissue. Inflammation and aging slows down the natural production of these cells, and the development of scar tissue limits the range of motion needed for proper rehabilitation. Using concentrated levels of umbilical cord-derived regenerative cellular matrix stem cells, these cells can quickly reduce pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. This supports the immune system in healing damage within the shoulder joint.
Regenerative Medicine for Shoulder Bursitis
The larger joints of the body contain small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae that provide cushioning between muscles, bones, and tissues, allowing them to move smoothly without friction. Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more of these bursae and often occurs within the shoulder joint, causing stiffness and making movement painful. The best treatments for bursitis aim to reduce the inflammation that is causing pain and stiffness. Regenerative Cellular Therapy is a revolutionary treatment protocol that takes concentrated amounts of healing regenerative cells and distributes them directly in the area of inflammation and damage. This is a non-surgical procedure that can be done in-office to quickly and naturally alleviate shoulder pain.
