REGENERATIVE CELL THERAPY FOR SHOULDER CONDITIONS
If you suffer with the Following Shoulder Conditions; learn more about how Regenerative Cell Therapy can help restore your health and help you live Pain-Free!
Rotator Cuff Tears
Shoulder Degeneration and Arthritis
Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Injuries
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 Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.
Regenerative Medicine For 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.
Pittsburgh East Health Center’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.
Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Degeneration
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 Amniotic 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.
Regenerative Medicine for Shoulder Bursitis
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 alleviates shoulder pain.
Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy
Amniotic regenerative cell therapy is one of the newest and most cutting-edge therapies for chronic joint pain. Amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy offers patients 3 essential properties for healing and restoring joint health:
- A high concentration of regenerative cells
- Hyaluronic Acid for joint lubrication and movement
- Anti-inflammatory cytokines and cellular growth factors essential for building new joint tissue
Since amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy is not derived from embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue, there are no ethical issues with the treatment.
The amniotic regenerative cell therapy consists of an injection directly into the painful area. The therapy has the potential to actually alter the course of the condition and not simply mask the pain. This therapy has significant potential for those in pain, and could actually repair structural problems while treating pain and inflammation simultaneously.
When the amniotic cell material is obtained, it comes from consenting donors who have undergone elective c-sections. The fluid is processed at an FDA regulated lab, and is checked for a full slate of diseases per FDA guidelines. The amniotic material has been used over 60,000 times in the US with no adverse events reported. It acts as an immunologically privileged material, meaning it has NOT been shown to cause any rejection reaction in the body. This means there is no graft versus host problem.
