Whether the result of a minor injury or a long-term condition, shoulder pain can make even simple everyday activities difficult and excruciating to perform. Fractures, rotator cuff injuries, and joint disorders like osteoarthritis are just some of the problems that lead to shoulder pain, and for many patients, pain persists even after surgery. This is often compounded with a lingering feeling of stiffness and a reduction in the joint’s range of motion, preventing you from living life to the fullest.
If you are looking for relief from shoulder pain, regenerative medicines can provide effective, long-lasting results. Safe and minimally invasive, these alternative therapies help your body to repair itself naturally.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy is used worldwide and can provide noticeable results after just one session. In a comfortable procedure performed under local anesthesia, stem cells are obtained from your body and, after being isolated, are injected into the site of injury.
As stem cells are capable of differentiating into specialized cells like muscle and bone, they can speed up the healing process. Relief from pain tends to be slow but steady, and multiple injections may be needed for a patient to benefit fully from the treatment.
When used alongside other treatments like IV Vitamin Therapy, Stem Cell Therapy can be very effective in the treatment of shoulder pain, restoring both the joint’s range of motion, and the natural balance of your body.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Found in human blood, platelets contain proteins and growth factors necessary for your body’s tissues to repair and regenerate. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, allowing it to aid in the healing process.
Often combined with Stem Cell Therapy for the treatment of shoulder pain, PRP is a simple and non-surgical procedure. Blood is drawn from the patient and centrifuged to concentrate the necessary platelets. Under local anesthetia, the solution is then injected into the affected shoulder joint. The growth factors in the platelets send signals that encourage other cells to come to in the injured area, speeding up healing and reducing your pain.
