Stem Cell Therapy For A Shoulder Injury

It is a fact that the human body is made of many specialized cells. These billions of cells form tendons, cartilage, skin, muscles, and more. Day after day, these cells will repeat what is known as the degenerative and regenerative process. When this happens, old cells die, but new cells are born from stem cells – and they will have the unique capability of creating other cells.

When your tissues are injured, the degenerative process will exceed the regenerative process, and your tissue structure will become weaker and less functional; you will also experience pain. Thanks to stem cell therapy, you can help the injured tissues heal, and this includes Stem Cell Therapy for Shoulder Injury.

Your body will keep a supply of stem cells available that could repair your injured and degenerated tissue. It is very easy for these stem cells to be retrieved in order to use them on your shoulder for therapeutic purposes. Remember that a shoulder injury can be extremely painful, especially since we use the shoulder for a wide range of motion each day. To help repair your injury – and reduce the amount of pain associated with the shoulder injury – stem cell therapy is used.

We can withdraw stem cells from your body fat or bone marrow, and then we will re-inject them once they have been concentrated through a centrifuge process. When these stem cells are re-injected into the body, the natural healing and repairing process begins.

If you have a shoulder injury, we may be able to use this regenerative procedure to help repair your shoulder, and alleviate the pain you are experiencing as a result of the injury. With this type of therapy, you are less likely to experience infections and blood clots, as well as other risks associated with surgery. Although no guarantees can be made, many patients have experienced alleviated pain, and improved range of motion in their shoulder after one injection. Some patients will need multiple injections before a change is noticed.
