What to Know About Stem Cell Therapy for Shoulders

Shoulder injuries are no fun. For one thing, they rarely heal quickly. But shoulder injuries also force you to stop doing what you enjoy. Let’s say that you enjoy playing the outfield in a weekly softball league. With rotator cuff tendonitis, that becomes nearly impossible. The unfortunate reality is that many folks let shoulder pain dictate their lives for decades. At Gateway Rehab & Wellness Center, we don’t believe that should be the case. It’s why more patients in Mission Viejo are coming to us for stem cell therapy. Keep reading as we discuss stem cell treatment for shoulder pain and other ailments.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Chances are that you’ve heard of adult stem cell therapy before. This treatment involves the use of stem cells to repair damaged ligaments, reduce pain, and produce overall joint stabilization. What makes stem cells unique is their self-renewal and self-regeneration properties. So how does stem cell regenerative therapy work? Well, it’s important to first consider that these stem cells are defective and/or dead. Thanks to regenerative therapy, they are replaced with new cells.   

Let’s take a look at two of the more common stem cell shots:

  • Amniotic – Are you tired of undergoing shoulder treatments that simply mask the symptoms? Amniotic stem cell therapy actually promotes repair of the body, helping to restore damaged or degenerated tissue. It’s important to know that amniotic cellular injections also contain hyaluronan, which eases pain and restores mobility by lubricating joints and tendons.
  • Regenerative – Similar to amniotic cell injections, regenerative ones work with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Be aware that treatments classed as regenerative medicine allow our healing process to work more rapidly and effectively. The technologies involved enable regeneration in damaged or missing tissue that would not ordinarily regrow.

Let’s revisit the hypothetical scenario where you are dealing with rotator cuff tendonitis. How would you imagine getting through the day? Maybe several doses of over-the-counter pain medication and keeping physical activity to a minimum? That doesn’t seem like an enjoyable life at all! At Gateway Rehab & Wellness Center, we don’t want patients to simply manage their pain. Instead, we want them to get back to that previously active lifestyle they used to love.

More patients are reaping the benefits of stem cell therapy at our facility. Considering it can be more effective and less invasive than traditional surgery, it makes a lot of sense.
