Anyone who has suffered a torn shoulder ligament or some other condition that produces debilitating shoulder pain such as a labral tear, osteoarthritis or an overuse injury knows how it impacts their quality of life.
Even so, thousands of people each year decide they must learn to “live with it” because they think risky and invasive shoulder surgery procedures or other ineffective forms of shoulder pain treatment are the only answer. They never realized another intervention is available: Cell Therapy Ortho-Biologics for shoulder pain.
Did you know that research suggests 75% of rotator cuff repair surgeries yield results comparable to no surgery at all and labral tears were no better than sham treatments. Before you make the decision to go under the knife, we suggest you weigh your non-surgical shoulder pain treatment options — such as regenerative injections — first. One of our patient care coordinators will work with you to determine if you are a candidate and take the next steps toward recovery.
COMMON SHOULDER CONDITIONS
Cell Therapy Ortho-Biologics is used to heal shoulder pain and injury caused by a wide variety of conditions and situation. Below are various shoulder injury examples.
Rotator cuff injury
Arthritis in the shoulder
Thoracic outlet syndrome
Labral tears or degeneration
Tendonitis & tendonosis
AC joint injury
Recurrent shoulder dislocation
Acromioclavicular joint separation or arthritis
Orthobiologics for Shoulder Pain
Orthobiologics Associates offers a new, minimally invasive stem cell procedure for shoulder pain. Cell Therapy Ortho-Biologics is a revolutionary approach to relieving your Nerve Pain. A stem cell’s primary function is to repair and regenerate damaged tissue, and we put them to work! When applied as part of a neuropathy pain treatment, we can now provide healing directly to nerves, leading to improved function.
After receiving PRP for shoulder pain and/or stem cell injections for shoulder pain, patients experience relief as tissues heal while inflammation and pain are reduced. This relief allows patients to increase their daily activities and movement, getting them back to a healthier, happier life.
Treat Shoulder Pain to Prevent Further Complications
Shoulder pain can affect people of all ages and occupations, from athletes and weekend warriors to largely sedentary persons and aging individuals. Research suggests that roughly 26% of all adults will experience shoulder pain at some point, and without treatment, the underlying cause of that pain may lead to further complications over time.
Common problems associated with a lack of appropriate shoulder pain treatment include:
- Chronic Pain
Without timely, targeted treatment, acute shoulder pain can grow more persistent. As the discomfort become chronic, it can compromise a person’s ability to perform several activities.
- Soft Tissue Weakness
Persistent shoulder pain can easily cause a person to decrease use of the affected shoulder, which may lead to muscle, tendon and ligament atrophy or weakness over time. As these soft tissues weaken and deteriorate, the shoulder as whole becomes more vulnerable to injury and further dysfunction.
- Joint & Muscle Dysfunction
When shoulder pain goes untreated, the shoulder joint and surrounding soft tissues may gradually grow stiff and limit a person’s range of motion. Decreased shoulder mobility can make performing even the simplest tasks — such as lifting objects or reaching overhead — difficult or even impossible.
- Compensation & Overuse Injuries
When a person lives with a painful, injured or dysfunctional shoulder, they often develop unhealthy movement patterns to compensate for the discomfort and lack of function. Whether those patterns involve the injured shoulder itself or increased use of the non-injured shoulder, overuse injuries can result, which will produce additional pain and further dysfunction.
Persistent shoulder pain may be a preliminary sign of arthritis, which requires prompt, progression-limiting treatment. Even when shoulder pain isn’t indicative of joint deterioration, certain untreated shoulder conditions and injuries can contribute to the development of arthritis without timely diagnosis and treatment.
- Decreased Quality of Life
Chronic shoulder pain and dysfunction that prevent a person from doing the things they love or even engaging in activities of daily living can trigger mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. Even in the short term, these issues can quickly lower a person’s quality of life and, over the long term, they can seriously affect overall mental well-being.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Shoulder Pain Treatment
Non-surgical therapies for shoulder pain, such as PRP and stem cells for shoulder injuries and dysfunction, offer several benefits over invasive and pharmacological treatments. They include:
Customizable, Multidisciplinary Treatment
Non-surgical treatments for shoulder pain can be customized to each patient’s unique condition and needs. Cellular therapy for shoulder pain can be combined with physical therapy, bracing and other forms of treatment to provide a truly holistic, integrative solution for addressing discomfort and dysfunction.
Preservation of Maximal Function
Surgical treatments for shoulder pain may limit joint and soft tissue mobility and overall function. Minimally invasive therapies, on the other hand, aim to help patients maintain maximum function of the shoulder as healing occurs.
Natural, Non-Pharmacological and Low Risk
Unlike surgical treatment options and/or pain medications, minimally invasive PRP injections or stem cells for shoulder tears and other injuries are completely natural. Treating pain and dysfunction using a natural approach not only lessens patients’ risk of medication dependence but also their risk of suffering complications during the healing process.
Positive Long-Term Treatment Outcomes
Non-surgical treatments for shoulder dysfunction and pain can illicit long-term pain relief and improvements in joint and soft tissue function. Such treatments can also help patients manage chronic pain over the long term without the need for pharmaceutical interventions.
Minimally invasive and non-invasive shoulder pain treatments are typically less costly than surgical treatments and allow patients to avoid lengthy post-treatment downtime and extended recovery periods.
