Regenerative Medicine in Lexington, KY for Shoulder Injuries

Sports activities that require repetetive overhead movements such as weightlifting, swimming, throwing or pitching, and swinging of the arms put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even common, everyday activities can damage the shoulder, including activies like 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 injuries, and other types of injuries, can now be treated with non-invasive, regenerative medicine procedures like Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.

Regenerative Medicine For Treating Rotator Cuff Tears

Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint. The ball of your upper arm bone fits into the socket of your shoulder blade. The rotator 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 rotator tears typically develop gradually due to stress and overuse as well as natural wear and tear. People who continuously lift their arm overhead are vulnerable to overuse tears. These include athletes like tennis players, swimmers, baseball pitchers and weight lifters. ;A tear in the rotator 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.

Millpond Integrative Health and Wellness Center’s healthcare partner providers employ regenerative cell therapy, which has been fortified and enhanced with cytokines and other natural growth factors to assist in the recovery of rotator cuff injuries. After injection directly into a rotator cuff, the cells combine with the body’s own natural immune cells and assist the body in repairing tears.

Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Degeneration

Shoulder joint degeneration is usually a progressive condition that develops and worsens over time. Shoulder degeneration happens when the cartilage that protects and surrounds bones wears 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.

Regenerative cell therapy and stem cell therapy take a high concentration of immune and stem cells, and uses them to target specific areas suffering from damaged tissues. Inflammation and aging slows down the natural production of these cells, and the development of scar tissue limits the range of motion needed for proper rehabilitation. Using concentrated levels of Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy, these cells can quickly reduce pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. This supports the immune system in healing within the shoulder joint.

Regenerative Medicine for Shoulder 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 seek to reduce inflammation that causes pain and stiffness. Regenerative Cell Therapy is a revolutionary treatment protocol that takes concentrated amounts of healing cells, 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.

Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy

Amniotic regenerative cell therapy is one of the newest and most cutting-edge therapies for chronic joint pain. Amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy offers patients 3 essential properties for healing and restoring joint health:

  • A high concentration of regenerative cells
  • Hyaluronic Acid for joint lubrication as well as movement
  • Anti-inflammatory cytokines and cellular growth factors necessary for building new joint tissue

Since amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy is not derived from embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue, there are no ethical issues with the treatment.

The amniotic regenerative cell therapy consists of an injection into the affected area. The therapy has the potential to alter the course of the condition instead of simply masking the pain. This therapy has significant potential for those in pain, and could actually repair structural problems while treating pain and inflammation simultaneously.

When the amniotic cell material is gathered, it comes from consenting donors who have undergone elective c-sections. The fluid is processed at an FDA regulated lab, and is checked for a full array of diseases by FDA guidelines. This amniotic material has been used over 60,000 times in the US with no adverse events reported. It acts as an immunologically privileged material, meaning it has NOT been shown to cause any rejection reactions in the body, meaning there isn’t a graft versus host problem.
