Chronic Shoulder Pain Rotator Cuff Tear Treated With Stem Cells
Chronic shoulder pain may be due to a variety of causes. Some shoulder pain problems are amenable to treatment with stem cell therapy. Stem cells have been used to treat rotator cuff injuries, glenoid labral tears, supraspinatus tears, biceps tendinitis, Impingement syndrome, shoulder bursitis, and a host of other shoulder pain syndromes. Stem cells have been used to repair and regenerate injured tissue.
Shoulders are placed under great strain with the nature of the various movements of the arm. This is especially true in athletics. Overhead sports such as baseball pitchers place extreme stress on their shoulder ligaments, cartilage and tendons.
The increasing use of Regenerative Medicine strategies to aid in shoulder repair and healing is a much desired therapy. Stem cells may possess great promise for shoulder ailments and arthritis. The application of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy may be a viable option for patients seeking to avoid shoulder surgery and shoulder joint replacement.
