The shoulder joint has the capability for a wide range of movement but is also vulnerable to damage from injury and normal wear and tear. People who play sports or participate in regular strenuous activity are at high risk for shoulder conditions, but they also can develop from overextending a stretch, a vehicular accident or overuse at work. Chronic shoulder pain can be felt in the upper back, arms, wrists, and fingers and can hinder your ability to perform basic movements. Shoulder pain symptoms include:
Pain when flexing or moving the arm
Throbbing pain when at rest
Weakness in arms and shoulders
Chronic shoulder pain could be the result of several common conditions including osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder, and joint degeneration. Early detection and treatment are ideal but there are effective treatment options available to address many degrees of shoulder conditions and relieve chronic shoulder pain.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder injuries can worsen over time causing extreme pain and continued damage, so you need safe and effective treatment as soon as possible. Loss of shoulder function and mobility to chronic pain could rob you of your independence but regenerative medicine therapy can help you maintain your quality of life while addressing the underlying cause of your shoulder pain. Traditional treatments for common shoulder pain causing conditions require an extensive physical and mental commitment. Pain management approaches based on pain medications and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories expose patients to risks like dependency and side effects including heart disease and kidney issues. Surgical approaches carry their own risks of further complications and require months of downtime and a long painful recovery. Our Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-invasive treatment approach that gives patients the option for effective shoulder pain solutions with none of the risk of traditional treatment. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is non-surgical and works with your body’s natural healing capability to repair damage and restore your shoulder.
Rotator Cuff Tears
A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that help the shoulder function properly. Rotator cuff tears are common but serious injuries that affect the vital tendons that serve as the connection between the muscles and shoulder joint. An untreated rotator cuff tear could compromise the overall stability of the shoulder joint and could lead to restricted mobility or limited arm function. Symptoms of a rotator cuff tear include:
Pain in the top of the shoulder
Radiating pain down to the elbow
Weakness in the shoulder and arm when lifting
Limited range of motion
Rotator cuff tears can be caused by injury, overuse or strenuous physical activity. Your tendons can also become more vulnerable to rotator cuff tear injuries from natural degeneration. The progression of the condition is usually gradual with symptoms increasing in intensity over time. Some rotator cuff tears present with no symptoms at all and others can be slight. If you think you may have a rotator cuff tear pay close attention to minimal changes in the arm and shoulder strength.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Rotator Cuff Tear?
Treatment for rotator cuff injuries can be difficult because the shoulder is a highly active joint. Most treatment approaches center around pain medication and immobilizing the joint to improve healing conditions. Pain medications carry serious side effects including dependency risks and immobilization can be nearly impossible during normal daily activity. Surgery for rotator cuff tears can be unsuccessful because reattaching and repairing tendon is an extremely difficult process. Recovery from a rotator cuff tear surgery is a grueling, painful process and the tendon has the potential to be reinjured without proper time to recover. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-surgical rotator cuff tear treatment that offers patients a safe and effective way to restore health and function to their shoulder joint. Amniotic Regenerative Cell therapy works to utilize the body’s natural growth factors and healing capability to regenerate damaged tendons and connective tissue. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a safe and effective non-invasive solution for your rotator cuff injury with proven successful results.
Shoulder Degeneration / Osteoarthritis
Our shoulders are responsible for almost constant movement and over the course of a lifetime that high demand for lifting, flexing, carrying, pushing and pulling can break down the cartilage cushioning the shoulder joint. Shoulder degeneration and shoulder osteoarthritis gradually worsen over time and nearly one in three people over the age of sixty have some degree of shoulder degeneration. Symptoms of shoulder degeneration and shoulder osteoarthritis include:
Stiff shoulder joint
Tenderness to the touch
Grinding or rubbing sensations with movement
Shoulder degeneration can be caused by injury or particularly strenuous physical activity but is usually the result of normal wear and tear from aging. The vital cartilage lost as shoulder degeneration progresses causes the bones that should slide along in your joint comfortably to rub together and put you at risk for further injury and chronic pain. Shoulder degeneration can make arm movements increasingly difficult and can cause constant chronic pain during both waking and sleeping hours.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Shoulder Degeneration?
Healthy shoulder joints are essential to maintaining independence and maintaining the ability to perform basic tasks relating to self-care. Many patients struggle to find comfort in traditional treatment approaches that seem to manage pain as the condition worsens but regenerative medicine offers an effective alternative that focuses on healing and rebuilding cartilage and restoring health. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive solution to address inflammation, chronic pain, and damage from shoulder degeneration. Instead of masking the pain with medication Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy repairs the cause of the pain in the shoulder joint. This holistic shoulder degeneration therapy approach requires no downtime and no painful recovery as you reclaim the healthy function of your shoulder.
Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that prevent friction in your shoulder joint. Healthy bursae are thin and lubricated to ease the movement of your bones and cushion the impact of normal stress and strain. When shoulder bursitis develops the bursae become inflamed and swell with extra synovial fluid crowding the space your shoulder joint needs to function properly. Common symptoms of shoulder bursitis include:
Gradually worsening shoulder pain
Tenderness to the touch
Radiating pain to the elbows and wrists
Difficulty moving arms and lifting
Difficulty putting arms overhead
Bursitis causes constant chronic pain while standing, sitting, lying down and moving the arm in any way. Bursitis affects people of all ages and can be the result of normal wear and tear or direct injury. Repeated overuse, repetitive movements, and overexertion can also be responsible for causing the bursae to become inflamed. People of all ages who participate in any level of physical activity can be at risk for shoulder bursitis and the condition can also be a complication of rheumatoid arthritis.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Shoulder Bursitis?
Timely treatment for shoulder bursitis is vital to prohibit continued damage from inflammation. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a safe, effective and non-invasive approach to helping your body naturally regulate excessive inflammation and begin repairing the damage in the shoulder joint. Traditional treatment for shoulder bursitis use methods that come with concerning side effects and often less than ideal results. Both pain medications and non-inflammatory medications mask the pain of the shoulder bursitis condition but also raise the risk of patients becoming dependent and increases the chance of heart, liver and kidney dysfunction. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy works with your body naturally to help facilitate healing and repair.
