Shoulder Pain: Rotator Cuff Tears Treated With Regenerative Medicine
Chronic shoulder pain is a common problem due to many different possible causes. Many patients are interested in shoulder pain problems that may be treated with stem cell therapy. Frequent shoulder problems such as rotator cuff injuries, glenoid labral tears, rotator cuff tears, supraspinatus tears, biceps tendinitis, impingement syndrome, and shoulder bursitis have been treated with stem cell therapy. Stem cells exert an anti-inflammatory effect by the nature of their ability to regulate cell signaling, which left uncontrolled results in degenerative osteoarthritis. This is one mechanism of how Stem Cells exert a therapeutic effect.
Shoulders are essentially a ball and socket joint. Shoulders are placed under tremendous strain and loads, with the various extreme movements of the arm in the ball and socket movement. This is certainly true in sports. Overhead sports such as tennis players and baseball pitchers place enormous stress on their shoulder joints.
Stem Cell Therapy For Shoulder Pain
The escalating use of Stem Cell Therapy strategies to assist in shoulder repair and healing is a desirable option for many patients. No two patients are alike, and therefore a personalized approach to using stem cells is needed. The use of Stem Cell treatments may be a viable option for patients seeking to avoid shoulder surgery and shoulder joint replacement.
