Regenerative Rotator Cuff Tear Treatment
Basically, your shoulder is a ball and socket joint where the ball of your upper bone fits into your shoulder blade’s socket. The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles that comes together as tendons and forms a covering round the head of the upper bone. This keeps the arm bone firmly attached to the socket of the shoulder blade or the scapula.
A rotator cuff tear is a tear in one or more tendons on the shoulder’s four rotator cuff muscles. This injury can include any kind of overuse or irritation of those tendons or muscle and it is one of the most common issues concerning the shoulder. These tears are the common cause of stiffness, shoulder pain, loss of motion and function and also weakness. Once, surgery was the best one could hope for in rotator cuff tear treatment. Since the advent of stem cell therapy using the patient’s own adult stem cells, however, advanced medical clinics in the U.S. like NSI Stem Cell in Florida provides a safe and highly effective rotator cuff tear therapy that regenerates and repairs damaged tissue.*
Professional athletes have known about and used stem cell therapy for many years, now, to treat joint and muscle injuries like those of the Hand and Wrist or Knee and more, including rotator cuff tear treatment.* Now this regenerative therapy is benefiting pro athletes and regular people alike.
Causes Of Rotator Cuff Tears
Majority of the tears involve the supraspinatus which goes up from the shoulder blade and down to the humerus. The tendons and surrounding ligaments in the should can be a result of the rotator cuff injury. The tears can cause sudden jerking motion while lifting or pulling. It may offer after a fall where the arm is stretched out. The tear causes a lot of pain and often contributes to shoulder joint instability. If the tear is severe, it may result to weakness or the inability to lift the arm.
A rotator cuff tear is among the most common conditions affecting the shoulder. Though this is the most common type of shoulder injury, they are often the most difficult to fix surgically. That’s why the advent of stem cell rotator cuff tear treatment has taken the medical community by storm.
The tears usually develop gradually due to overuse, stress and the natural wear and tear. People who repeatedly lift their arms over their head are more susceptible to overuse tears. These includes but not limited to the following people:
- Tennis players
- Weight lifters
- Basketball pitchers
Stem Cell Rotator Cuff Tear Treatment Versus Surgery
A lot of people look for alternatives to traditional surgery when it comes to repairing a tear because of its ineffectiveness and the long recovery and rehabilitation process. Based on the study presented at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons’ annual meeting in 2012, the failure rate for rotator cuff repair surgery was at 57% in 500 patients. That is more than half of the participants.
The underlying issue when it comes to numerous rotator cuff tears isn’t the injury itself but the lack of stem cells.* The muscles and tissues surrounding the injury have been weakened because of the inadequate blood supply. This means that fewer stem cells are delivered to the area than is needed to help heal and rebuild the tendons.* This issue cannot simply be solved by stitching the bad tissues together.
Surgical treatment involves cutting the tendons and then stitching them together and then these are immobilized for long periods of time to promote healing. However, the downside to this is longer recovery period and it also makes the tendons and muscles weaker. Rotator cuff tear treatments through stem cell therapy is safe, effective, far less invasive and is done on an outpatient basis.
Regenerative Rotator Cuff Tear Treatment
NSI Stem Cell offers an effective and less invasive alternative to other conventional methods of rotator cuff tear therapy and surgeries. We have a same-day outpatient procedure that involves less pain, decreased recovery time and lower risks compared to traditional surgery.
Aside from the stem cell therapy, we also use platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy which has been enhanced and fortified with cytokines and extra natural growth factors.
The stem cells are harvested from the patients’ own adipose “fat” and bone marrow whereas the PRP and cytokines are extracted from the patient’s own blood. Once these are extracted, the the cells are purified and filtered which results to a highly concentrated solution that is directly injected into the rotator cuff where it stimulates the body’s own healing process.
The platelet rich plasma (PRP) releases growth factors that are able to speed up the healing process by stimulating the movement of the stem cells towards the site of injury*. Aside from guiding the stem cells, the growth factor also nourishes the cells throughout the entire process of repairing, rebuilding and strengthening of the damaged area. *This makes the conditions in the injured area more conducive for healing and repair.*
When is Stem Cell Rotator Cuff Tear Treatment and PRP Therapy Applicable?
Basically, rotator cuff tear treatment using stem cell therapy and PRP therapy produces successful results in the following cases of rotator cuff injury as an alternative to the following:*
- Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery
- Regular treatments like cortisone shots, medications and also physical therapy especially if there is decreased range of motion and increased pain regardless of these treatments.
- These are used an alternative revision surgery for those with failed or unsuccessful surgical procedures
If you have rotator cuff tears and injury, call NSI Stem Cell to find out if rotator cuff tear treatment through stem cell therapy and PRP therapy is right for you.
What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic
When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.
Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.
The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.
What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:
1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.
2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.
3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics
4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.
5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.
Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.
