Shoulder pain has a way of creating serious limitations in your life that can leave you unable to perform daily tasks, exercise, play sports, or even reach your arms over your head. If you have shoulder pain that’s affecting your quality of life and are looking for a non-surgical, drug-free solution, our regenerative treatments may be able to help.
Regenerative tissue injections and platelet-rich plasma help treat the underlying cause of your shoulder pain for real pain relief that lasts. Book a free consultation today to find out more.
What Are Common Causes of a Painful Shoulder?
There are several different causes of shoulder pain that include both acute injuries and chronic, degenerative conditions.
Some of the most common causes that we use regenerative treatments for include:
- Cartilage damage
- Dislocated shoulders
- Torn rotator cuff
When you have chronic or severe shoulder pain and want a non-surgical solution, it’s important that the treatment you choose addresses the underlying cause of the pain. Pain medication is often prescribed as a way to alleviate painful shoulders, but that is only a temporary fix that needs to be repeated again and again indefinitely. There is also the potential for dangerous side effects when you get into a cycle of pain medication.
How Does Regenerative Medicine Effectively Treat Chronic and Severe Shoulder Pain?
Our regenerative medicine treatments for shoulder pain can help your body’s own healing process get to the root cause of the pain and resolve the issue for relief that lasts.
Wharton’s Jelly-derived regenerative tissue injections contain a wide range of powerful healing properties that are highly potent and still at the height of their healing power.
- Amino acids
- Growth factors
- And more
The tissue we collect is ethically sourced from donated umbilical cords after a scheduled C-section. The mothers are carefully screened ahead of time to ensure the collected tissue is of the highest quality. These regenerative tissue treatments are minimally invasive, consisting of a standard injection, and they are done on an outpatient basis. Because the tissue has yet to form its own immune system, the likelihood of rejection is virtually zero.
Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is another regenerative treatment for painful shoulders that can help you experience long-lasting relief. After a small sample of your own blood is drawn, the platelets and red blood cells are separated in a centrifuge. This results in highly concentrated platelets that contain healing properties. This will help your body resolve underlying shoulder issues to promote pain relief. Like regenerative tissue injections, PRP therapy is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime with almost no chance of rejection.
