What is Shoulder Pain?

Your shoulders are a complex network of tendons, muscles, ligaments, and bones. Together, these tissues work to support the shoulder in all its mobility, allowing you to move your arms and upper body however you need. When the tissues of the shoulder become disrupted, it can cause symptoms like pain, weakness, and even a loss of movement. This can make it difficult to do the things you love – and even impact your day-to-day life when pain prevents you from focusing on the things important to you.

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Some of the most common causes of chronic shoulder pain are injuries to the joint capsule or surrounding connective tissue like the rotator cuff muscles, although factors like osteoarthritis and overuse also cause shoulder pain. In most cases, shoulder pain is caused by inflammation and loss of cartilage that lines and surrounds the joint, resulting in a disruption in the gliding movements that give your shoulders their mobility. Many small connections of shoulders, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels surround the shoulder girdle and often respond very well to regenerative therapies. 

Active patients are most likely to experience shoulder pain, especially from certain activities that require regular shoulder movements, often overhead and externally rotated. In these cases, stem cell therapies can be an effective way to help manage inflammation, decrease pain, and regenerate damaged tissue. Stem cells can help you get back to your active lifestyle sooner.

How Can Stem Cells Help Shoulder Pain?

Stem cells can help ease symptoms of shoulder pain by reducing inflammation within the tissues and joints. Additionally, stem cells can help regenerate new tissue in the joints and surrounding areas to heal injuries and provide better support. Our patients in Kirkland and St. Petersburg have reported faster injury recovery and reduced pain after stem cell treatment for shoulder pain.

Stem Cell Therapy for Shoulder Pain

Stem cell therapy for shoulder pain works by injecting stem cells into the joint and surrounding muscles and ligaments. There, the stem cells can begin regenerating new tissue and reducing inflammation. Stem cells can be provided by a screened donor source or taken from your own body, reducing the chance of adverse reactions. Stem cell therapy is performed at our offices, and you can return home the same day as your therapy. During a consultation with our stem cell experts at our Kirkland and St. Petersburg offices, our team can explain what you can expect.
