Shoulder Stem Cell Therapy Nashville & Franklin TN
Dr. Gil Center for Back, Neck, and Chronic Pain Relief
Your shoulder joint is one of the most essential joints in the body. It also happens to be one of the most mobile joints as well as the most powerful. Shoulders are used for nearly every task we perform throughout the day.
Unfortunately, shoulder injuries are common, and people with these injuries or age-related wear and tear often experience pain even with small movements such as washing their hair or reaching for a coffee cup.
Shoulder surgeries often aren’t successful in treating these conditions. However, stem cell shoulder repair Nashville TN allows patients to forgo invasive surgery and heal their shoulder at the source of their pain, eliminating the need for further treatment.
What Is Stem Cell Treatment for Shoulders?
Our bodies heal themselves every day. As old or damaged cells die, new cells come into being. However, when a shoulder injury or degenerative condition such as arthritis happens, the dying process of these injured cells begins to exceed the new cells that are being born.
Stem cell treatment simply accelerates the natural healing process of your body by injecting healthy new cells into the area of your pain or injury. Stem cells provide shoulder pain treatment for patients to avoid shoulder surgery and have a successful treatment with a faster recovery.
What to Expect During the Procedure
First, a consultation, examination and x rays will be performed to determine the severity of your condition. The doctor will review the examination findings with you in detail and answer the questions you may have. On the day of your actual stem cell procedure you will meet with the medical staff who will answer any additional questions. You will then receive a stem cell injection treatment. Due to the large number of cells injected, only one treatment is needed.
There’s no need for harmful medication or general anesthesia, just Nashville stem cell injections for your shoulder to help your body repair itself. We take the utmost care to make the treatment comfortable for our patients. Afterward, you’ll be able to drive yourself home, and we recommend resting for the first day after the procedure.
After this, you’ll need to limit movement of the shoulder for the first two weeks before you begin to exercise and extend your range of motion. During this time, you should experience decreased shoulder pain and increased healing!
Conditions That Can Be Treated
Stem cell treatment for shoulder can treat several conditions, including:
Rotator Cuff Tears
The rotator cuff consists of four different muscles that come together in the shoulder to form tendons. The rotator cuff can be partially torn or completely torn due to degeneration of the tendons or a rotator cuff injury.
For people who have complete rotator cuff tears, stem cell therapy may not be the best option. However, people who have partial rotator cuff tears are some of the best candidates for regenerative stem cell treatment.
In order to determine if you’re a candidate, your chiropractor in Nashville at Dr. Gil Center for Back, Neck, and Chronic Pain Relief and Middle TN Stem Cell Institute will examine your shoulder to help you discover your options for alleviating your pain.
During stem cell therapy for rotator cuff tears, concentrated stem cells are introduced into your rotator cuff where they help your body to repair the tear naturally and accelerate the healing process.
The labrum is a disk of cartilage that helps anchor the ball and socket joint of your shoulder. It not only stabilizes the joint, but it prevents excessive range of motion that could be damaging to the joint. The labrum is a secure yet flexible piece of cartilage that helps the shoulder to move pain-free.
Labrum tears can happen due to injuries that result in abnormal movement or repetitive trauma, such as is seen in people who play sports for years.
Nashville stem cell therapy for torn shoulder labrum can help. Approximately one million stem cells are injected into the labrum and the cells become healthy, new cartilage tissue to repair the tear and stop painful symptoms. Stem cell shoulder cartilage repair can help you feel better!
When the cartilage in your shoulder begins to deteriorate, you experience swelling, pain, and even bone spurs if the degeneration is severe enough. Eventually, you may experience limited movement of your shoulder due to the bone remodeling to compensate for the loss of cartilage.
Stem cell shot for shoulders can help treat arthritis pain in the shoulder with no serious side effects! Your cartilage can begin to heal and repair with stem cell therapy for shoulder arthritis. This will help facilitate healthy range of motion in your shoulder and stop your discomfort.
Shoulder tendonitis is swelling of the tendons in your shoulder, which, like most joint issues, can be caused by an injury or wear and tear. Shoulder tendonitis also encompasses swelling of the rotator cuff or the bicep tendon.
This pain may range from mild to severe; if the tendons are swollen, they can thicken and be painful and stiff. Stem cell shoulder treatment can alleviate pain without invasive surgery to help repair the damaged tissue with a single injection.
A bursa is a small sac filled with fluid that protects your arm bone and the tendons of your rotator cuff from rubbing together. Injury of the shoulder bursae are common and are also associated with conditions such as gout and arthritis.
Nashville TN chiropractors and their medical staff Scan help your damaged bursa with stem cells, which can regenerate healthy bursa tissue to effectively reverse your injury and inflammation.
Additional Information about Stem Cell Therapy
Dr. Gil Center for Back, Neck, and Chronic Pain Relief and Middle TN Stem Cell Institute use stem cells that are taken from umbilical cord tissue of donors that are considerably screened. This tissue comes from mothers who have healthy C-section deliveries. The reason we use this tissue is because it provides a higher concentration of stem cells which makes a single treatment more effective than numerous treatments with your own stem cells.
In addition, these stem cells are undifferentiated, meaning they have the potential to become any cell in the human body, including cartilage and bone. What this means for you is that they can repair practically any tissue, even a shoulder sprain or strain.
Stem cells from umbilical cord tissue (also called Wharton’s Jelly) also provide zero risk for rejection, as there’s no immune reaction for undifferentiated cells between donor and recipient.
We engage in practices that are rigorously strict under extensively trained medical personnel. All tissue we used is extensively screened and tested through the American Association of Tissue Banks. We never use fetal tissue for our stem cell treatments, and it is illegal in the United States to do so.
