If you have a torn rotator cuff, you may suffer severe pain in your shoulder and find your range of motion is restricted.
One of the options available to you is stem cell therapy for a torn rotator cuff. Stem cell therapy may be an option if you want to avoid surgery and recover more quickly from your injury.
Let’s look in more detail at the rotator cuff’s function, and the impact it has on your life if you suffer a tear. We’ll also examine how stem cell therapy for a shoulder injury is performed, and the benefits it may bring in supporting your recovery.
The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and tendons in your shoulder that work together to enable you to lift and rotate your arms.
As you can easily imagine, given the range of movements it supports, your rotator cuff is an important part of your body – and a tear in it can restrict your quality of life on a daily basis.
A torn rotator cuff is a common injury. You can suffer a rotator cuff injury during sporting events that use the shoulders – such as tennis, swimming, rowing, or baseball.
Alternatively, if you have a job that puts pressure on your shoulders, including lifting, cleaning, and painting, over time the wear and tear can cause your rotator cuff to be damaged.
There are two types of rotator cuff tears. A partial tear occurs when one of the muscles in the area becomes worn or damaged over time. A complete tear happens when one of your tendons becomes detached from your shoulder bones.
Evidence suggests that stem cell therapy supports shoulder injury healing, thus improving shoulder mobility and quality of life.
Umbilical cord stem cells are undifferentiated cells that signal the body to repair, regenerate, and heal. At Stemwell, we use only ethically sourced umbilical cord stem cells from healthy donors.
Those cells can be directly injected into the affected area (targeted stem cell treatment) as well as intravenously. They quickly go to work in reducing inflammation and, crucially, supporting tissue healing.
Many patients over the years have experienced improved shoulder movement and decreased pain thanks to stem cell therapy for shoulder injuries. The fact that this treatment does not involve invasive surgery also means that recovery time may be shorter.
