Is chronic shoulder pain and discomfort preventing you from enjoying your everyday activities? We offer non-surgical regenerative medicine options to get you the all-natural relief you need to resume your normal life. Painkillers and complicated shoulder joint surgery are no longer your only option to get pain relief from shoulder injuries. Led by our board-certified, experienced doctor in Charleston, Illinois, our clinic provides regenerative medicine alternatives to treat your pain at its source so that you recover faster.
Shoulder Pain Relief
A shoulder injury is often caused by trauma to the shoulder joints or degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Anti-inflammatory drugs and other pain management medication address your symptoms, rather than the causes. Regenerative medicine uses your body’s biological ability to self-renew and promote healing in order to repair the damaged tissue in your shoulder. This approach helps you to eliminate shoulder pain causes and not just the symptoms.
Pinched Nerve in Shoulder
When surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons place excessive pressure on a nerve, you may develop a pinched nerve. If you experience any of the following symptoms, a pinched nerve may be the source of your sharp shoulder pain:
- Shoulder blade pain
- Hand, arm, or shoulder weakness
- Dull aches, numbness, or tingling
- Pain aggravated by neck movements
Shoulder Joint Pain Treatment
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy is an advanced treatment option for your shoulder pain. Our clinic uses mesenchymal stem cells derived from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical tissue. Birth tissue contains numerous stem cells that can be used to treat your shoulder problems. When these young cells are injected into your shoulder joint, they activate your body’s natural anti-inflammatory responses and begin to repair injured nerves, muscles, cartilage, and other tissues.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Platelet-rich plasma injection or PRP therapy is another regenerative medicine treatment option for your shoulder arm pain and pain in your shoulder joints. PRP injections promote healing in muscle and tendon injuries that can cause shoulder pain.
After taking a small sample of your blood, our medical staff processes it to concentrate the platelets, which are rich in healing and therapeutic growth factors. This serum is then injected into the muscles and tendons of your shoulder. Like stem cells therapy, platelets help your body to heal without any adverse side effects.
Other Therapeutic Techniques
Following your diagnosis, our chiropractor can recommend chiropractic care focusing on spinal adjustments to help you get relief from shoulder joint pain. Trigger point injections can also target muscular pain in the shoulder with natural anti-inflammatories for fast pain relief. Laser therapy sends safe beams of light to your injured shoulder to promote healing.
The regenerative medicine alternatives offered by our medical center can help you get fast effective pain relief while avoiding surgery and pain medication. Our shoulder treatments are same-day, outpatient procedures that require no downtime and no lengthy painful rehab. A proper diagnosis of shoulder pain is essential in determining the cause of the injury and patient candidacy for regenerative cell treatment.
