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.
Regenerative Medicine Therapy for shoulder injuries has statistically been proven to be more effective than most surgeries. 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 over 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 the Regenerative tissues are reintroduced into the affected area, they improve the process of natural repair to combat bone degeneration and injured tendons, ligaments, and arthritic joints. At Bay Area Regenerative Medicine Therapy in San Ramon, 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.
With Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, we utilize your blood to aid healing of the injury that is causing you pain. By concentrating the platelets in the blood more than the body can produce, PRP injections work to promote natural healing in the affected area. We have witnessed improved symptoms in our patients within months after receiving therapy.
Shoulder injuries that can be helped by regenerative medicine therapy and platelet-rich plasma include:
