Shoulder Pain Q & A
What is shoulder pain?
Shoulder pain is any type of pain that you feel in the joints, muscles, tendons, tissues, or ligaments in or surrounding your shoulder. The shoulder naturally has a wide range of motion, so damage to any part of this ball-and-socket joint can inhibit its function and cause severe pain.
What causes shoulder pain?
While shoulder pain often develops from overuse or muscle strain, it can also occur due to an underlying condition, such as:
- Frozen shoulder
- Rotator cuff injury
- Ruptured tendon
- Torn cartilage
Shoulder pain is common in adults, but injuries typically worsen over time. To avoid surgery, oral pain medication, or injections of pain medication, SC Stem Cell offers a variety of alternative and regenerative therapies.
How is shoulder pain handled?
Physicians typically shoulder pain with medication to mask the symptoms or use invasive surgeries. Fortunately, the team at SC Stem Cell offers scientifically proven that actually repair damage at the injury site, including:
Stem cells are human cells that can become specialized cells. This means doctors can inject them into nearly anywhere on the body to create muscle cells, brain cells, blood cells, and more. Their regenerative nature allows stem cells to stimulate your body’s natural healing process.
During regenerative therapy, SC Stem Cell performs a bone marrow aspiration by removing bone marrow from your hip. They then run this material through a centrifuge to isolate the potent stem cells and inject them directly into your injury site. Over time, regenerative therapy leads to lasting pain relief and tissue repair.
While your body delivers oxygen-rich blood to your muscles, tissues, and joints, these sites often require more oxygen than your body can provide when they’re damaged. To supply your damaged tissues with a healthy amount of oxygen, SC Stem Cell offers hyperbaric chambers.
This involves sitting in a pressurized chamber while you breathe in pure oxygen to promote faster healing. You can combine the hyperbaric chamber with stem cell therapy for the best results. The SC Stem Cell team recommends three hyperbaric chambers sessions a week for a total of 25 to 40.
SC Stem Cell offers lymphatic, Swedish, and deep tissue massages to reduce inflammation and tension, relieve pain, and improve the range of motion in your shoulder.
