Shoulder pain from chronic conditions and injuries can impact people at all stages of life. If you’re experiencing pain, stiffness, and inflammation of the shoulder joint, stem cell therapy can provide relief.
What is Stem Cell Therapy For The Shoulder?
Stem cell therapy has proven to be an effective solution for shoulder pain. In this regenerative treatment method, the patient’s own stem cells are harvested from the bone marrow at the back of the pelvis or the fat cells in the abdomen. After being concentrated in a centrifuge, the stem cells are then injected near the damaged shoulder tissue. Stem cells are activated with platelets, which enable them to repair damaged tissue and stimulate the damaged cells’ own healing process.
The repair process takes between 2 to 3 months after stem cell therapy. Once the damaged tissue has repaired itself with the support of the stem cells, patients experience a reduction in pain and an improvement in the range of motion of the shoulder joint.
What Shoulder Conditions Benefit From Stem Cell Therapy?
There are many shoulder conditions that can benefit from stem cell therapy. Some of the most common shoulder conditions treated with stem cells include:
- Torn rotator cuff
- Rotator cuff tendinosis
- Labral tear
- Bicep tendon tear
- Shoulder impingement
Many of the conditions listed above can be difficult to treat. If relief isn’t found with traditional methods, surgery may seem like the only remaining option. However, stem cell therapy can provide long-lasting relief from shoulder pain by repairing the damaged tissue, without the need for surgery. This allows patients to gain relief from shoulder discomfort without the complications and recovery time associated with shoulder surgery. After all, little to no downtime is required after stem cell therapy.
