If you injure your shoulder, shoulder joint or if you have tendons or ligaments that have become inflamed, stem cell therapy may help. It uses your body’s own stem cells to help heal shoulder damage. It may help you avoid surgery.
Collecting and Injecting
Stem cell therapy takes advantage of the special healing quality of stem cells. Stem cells are found in your bone marrow, fat, tissues and other specialized cells. Stem cells are recovered post-natally from the umbilical cord, including the umbilical cord blood cells, amnion/placenta, umbilical cord vein, or umbilical cord matrix cells. These stem cells are capable of forming many different cell types (i.e., they are “multipotent” or “pluripotent”). For this procedure, our premium stem cells have been rigorously pre-processed, certified, then, injected into the area to be treated.
After the Injection
The injection triggers your body’s healing response. The stem cells help repair soft tissues in and around the joint. They can help decrease inflammation.
After the procedure, you can go home. Your doctor will ask you to come back to the office several times to monitor the healing process.
