The shoulder joint is what doctors call a “ball-and-socket” type of joint. It is made-up of three bones: the collarbone (clavicle), the shoulder blade (scapula), and the upper arm bone (humerus). All of these bones work together to allow your shoulder to be the most movable joint in the body. That is why shoulder injuries can have such a major impact on people’s lives.
Clinical studies support Regenerative Medicine Therapy for shoulder injuries to be effective. In fact, a recent study indicated that nearly 60 percent of patients who receive surgery for rotator cuff injuries do not fully recover. However, the same report indicated that approximately 72 percent of patients who received Regenerative Medicine Therapy for their rotator cuff injury made significant improvements to functionality and range of motion, ultimately, making a nearly full recovery from their shoulder injury. When regenerative medicine is injected into the affected area, it improves the process of natural repair to combat bone degeneration and injured tendons, ligaments, and arthritic joints. At Central Coast Regenerative Medicine in San Luis Obispo, we have helped many patients recover from rotator cuff and other injuries that impede their everyday lives, and we may be able to do the same for you.
Shoulder injuries that may be improved by Regenerative Medicine Therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection Therapy include:
