Shoulder Pain Treatments
If you’re suffering with chronic shoulder pain related to shoulder injury, rotator cuff tears, shoulder degeneration, arthritis, or bursitis, our regenerative treatments may be able to help.
If you’re suffering from shoulder pain related to a repetitive motion injury or an overextension, the team at Infinite Regeneration Medical Group is ready to help you. We are ready to treat any and all symptoms related to tears, degeneration, arthritis, bursitis, and injury.
Sports activities that require repeating overhead movements like lifting weights, swimming, throwing or pitching, and swinging of the arms put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even regular, everyday activities can damage the shoulder such as gardening, hanging curtains, or even scrubbing the floors or walls. Often, injury to the shoulder is difficult to heal, and can easily become a recurring problem, even if the immediate pain has subsided. Once ligaments and tissues have been damaged, scar tissue and inflammation can continue to form and build. It is also common for the same injury to reappear, and flare up at later times.
Sports or other injury to the shoulder can now be treated with non-invasive, regenerative medicine procedures like Regenerative Cell Therapy. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.
Rotator Cuff Tears
Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint in which the ball of your upper arm bone fits into the socket of your shoulder blade. The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles that come together as tendons forming a covering around the head of the upper arm bone keeping the arm bone firmly attached to the socket of the shoulder blade (scapula).
The rotator tears usually develop gradually due to stress, overuse and natural wear and tear. People who repeatedly lift their arm overhead are more vulnerable to overuse tears. These include athletes such as tennis players, swimmers, weight lifters and basketball pitchers. A tear in the rotator cuff produces a lot of pain and also contributes to instability in the shoulder joint. If it is severe, there may be weakness or an inability to lift the arm.
Infinite Regeneration Medical Group’s healthcare partner providers use regenerative cell therapy, which has been fortified and enhanced with cytokines and additional natural growth factors to aid in the recovery of rotator cuff injuries. After injection directly into the rotator cuff, these cells combine with the body’s own natural immune cells and aid the body in repairing the tear.
Degeneration of the shoulder joints is usually a progressive condition that evolves and worsens over time. Shoulder degeneration occurs when the cartilage that protects and surrounds the bones begins to wear down. Without this cushioning between the bones, movement causes friction within the joint. This friction causes pain, inflammation, swelling, and can lead to the development of bone spurs.
Regenerative Cell Therapy takes a high concentration of immune cells, and uses them to target specific areas with damaged tissues. Inflammation and aging slows down the natural production of these cells, and the development of scar tissue limits the range of motion needed for proper rehabilitation. Using concentrated levels of Regenerative Cell Therapy, these cells can quickly reduce pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. This supports the immune system in healing damage within the shoulder joint.
The larger joints of the body contain small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae that provide cushioning between muscles, bones and tissues, allowing them to move smoothly without friction. Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more of these bursae, and often occurs within the shoulder joint, causing stiffness and making movement painful.
The best treatments for bursitis aim to reduce the inflammation that is causing the pain and stiffness. Regenerative Cell Therapy is a revolutionary treatment protocol that takes concentrated amounts of healing cells, and uses them directly in the area of inflammation and damage. This is a non-surgical procedure that can be done in-office, and quickly and naturally helps to alleviate shoulder pain.
