Shoulder Conditions

If you suffer with any of the following shoulder conditions, the treatments available at Regenerative Medicine of Raynham can restore your health and help you live pain-free!

Shoulder Degeneration

Foot and Ankle Pain

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. Allograft injections containing cells target specific areas with damaged tissues. Inflammation and aging slows down the natural production of our own cells, and the development of scar tissue limits the range of motion needed for proper rehabilitation. Using these restorative procedures can quickly reduce pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. This supports the immune system in healing damage within the shoulder joint.

Rotator Cuff Tear

The rotatory 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 rotatory 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 rotatory 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. Regenerative Medicine of Raynham uses restorative therapies to aid in the recovery of rotatory cuff injuries. After injection directly into the rotatory cuff, these cells combine with the body’s own natural immune cells and aids the body in repairing tears.

 

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 medicine injection therapy is a revolutionary treatment protocol that takes allograft tissue from healthy C-section umbilical cord tissue 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.

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, restorative medicine procedures using allograft injections containing cells. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.

“I had my first tissue transplant injection to my right hip on October 1st, 2019. The procedure was done in the office, it was painless, and within a short period of time I went from limping in constant pain to walking without a limp and being pain free. The results for me have been exceptional.”
