How Is Stem Cell Therapy an Effective Shoulder Pain Treatment?

Written By West Georgia Regenerative Medicine on October 22, 2018

From multiple sclerosis to autism, stem cell therapy is an exciting new branch of medicine that’s grown in reverence in recent years. 

But did you know it can also be used as a shoulder pain treatment, providing quick and effective relief without the need for medication? 

Furthermore, it may significantly reduce the chance of you requiring surgery in the future. 

You see, regenerative medicine is growing in popularity and availability. This is due to its effectiveness at treating a plethora of conditions, including knee and shoulder pain caused by the onset of arthritis. 

So in cases where certain tissues were deemed irreparable, there’s now hope, thanks to stem cells. 

What’s Involved in Stem Cell Therapy? 

Stem cells have the innate ability to develop into a variety of different cells, which makes them unlike any other cell in our body. They can become specialized cells, such as cartilage or brain tissue, or they can turn into blood cells or muscle cells – to name but a few. They can also renew and divide constantly over an extended period. 

Where do they come from? 

They can be harvested from a number of places, including your own bone marrow and fat tissue. However, with continued research, scientists are finding even more places to obtain stem cells from, often with a higher concentration than what is already in our bodies. This includes the amniotic sac that’s often discarded during a baby’s birth when the mother is undergoing a C-section. 

While there is still some controversy and ethical debate surrounding some sources of stem cells, one thing’s for sure, they are giving people hope where there previously was none. 

What Are the Benefits of This Shoulder Pain Treatment? 

With stem cell therapy, you’re giving your body the chance to regenerate the shoulder using a natural healing method. You could use it to treat any degeneration resulting from osteoarthritis or to heal a rotator cuff tear, for example.

Not only will the injections help stimulate the growth of new cartilage and help mobilize existing cartilage but they’ll also reduce any inflammation, providing great pain relief. And by repairing any tissue that’s causing your shoulder pain, it may reduce your chances of needing surgery while helping prevent any problems in the future as well. 

Furthermore, all of this can be done from the comfort and convenience of your chiropractic clinic in Columbus.
