An injury to the shoulder can be devastating. You rely on your shoulders every day to perform a wide range of motions like lifting, reaching, and throwing. When an injury occurs, even the smallest movement may cause excruciating pain in the joint or radiating down the arm. This may make it difficult or even impossible to perform everyday activities. Sleep can also be affected, preventing the body from performing vital regenerative processes and slowing recovery time further.
The shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the body, and also one of the most vulnerable. Injuries are especially common in those who perform repetitive or strenuous overhead work and lifting, but they can happen to anyone, regardless of occupation or age. For example, a sudden impact which results in a fracture or dislocation may cause lingering pain and stiffness in the joint for several weeks, even after surgery.
Stem cell therapy is an effective option for the treatment of shoulder injuries. Using adult adipose stem cells collected from the patient in a comfortable, minimally-invasive procedure, the treatment can aid recovery and alleviate pain and discomfort in the affected area.
When injected into the site of injury, stem cells are able to differentiate into specialized cells like muscle or cartilage. This allows them to assist in the healing process, and encourages other cells to join the effort. Their presence also promotes circulation and increases the release of important growth factors needed for the damaged tissues to repair.
Since the cells are taken from your own body, the risk of allergies or adverse reactions is minimal. Many patients report a gradual decrease in pain and improvement in the joint’s range of motion after just one injection. Stem Cell Therapy can be combined with other treatments like IV Vitamin Therapy as well as gentle physical therapy to promote a fast recovery and restore the natural balance of your body.
