Regenerative medicine offers effective treatment of shoulder and rotator cuff damage via one of the most potent methods known to science: stem cell injection therapy.

If pain, inflammation, and reduced mobility are making it difficult or impossible to move your arm and shoulder, you may have injured your shoulder or rotator cuff. This injury is common in patients whose occupation or hobby requires repetitive overhead arm motions. Desperate patients often turn to surgery.

The vast majority of rotator cuff patients aren’t aware that often their surgery does not fully repair all of their damaged tissue – despite the pain relief and improved range-of-motion they feel… for a while. Long-term outcomes, however, aren’t always so good when damaged tissue is left behind.

Regenerative medicine offers effective treatment of shoulder and rotator cuff damage via one of the most potent methods known to science: stem cell injection therapy. This advanced method may help repair your shoulder or rotator cuff without the need for costly surgeries or potentially dangerous medications.

FAQ

Repetitive overhead motions put stress on your shoulder and rotator cuff, straining the muscles and tendons and causing a dull, aching pain that may radiate down to your upper chest or back. This condition, that develops slowly over time, is called a degenerative tear. Symptoms include:

  • difficulty sleeping due to pain
  • arm weakness
  • severely reduced range of arm motion
  • difficulty reaching behind your back or over your head

While this injury is more common among people who do repetitive motions, a hard fall on your arm, lifting something heavy with a quick jerking motion, or a car accident injury can also damage your shoulder or rotator cuff. This type of injury occurs quickly and is called an acute tear. Symptoms include:

  • sudden pain in your upper arm or shoulder after impact or heavy lifting
  • arm weakness that starts suddenly
  • reduced range of arm motion
  • difficulty reaching behind your back or over your head

If your pain started suddenly, call your medical provider or get emergency care right away.

Unlike costly, time-consuming surgeries or risky medications, our stem cell product may power up your body’s own restorative potential, minimizing or eliminating your pain and stimulating a natural healing response in your muscles and tendons.

Unlike surgery, which removes skin and bone, regenerative therapy injects harvested live cells directly into your pain site. These stimulate your native cells to regenerate. Your provider will use live x-ray or ultrasound imaging for guidance, so the injection will be delivered precisely to your damaged cells.

When your injured cells bond with stem cells, they may regenerate your tissue and restore your range of movement, allowing you to once again participate in your usual activities.

The live-nucleated cells injected by your provider may generate human growth factors for weeks, sometimes even months. How long they remain active depends on your age, body type, genetics, and type of injury. Treatment success also varies depending on these factors.
