Regenerative Therapy for Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can have an enormous impact on quality of life and everyday activities. Traditional treatments typically include medications, physical therapy or surgery as appropriate – however regenerative therapy offers hope to those living with shoulder discomfort.

Regenerative medicine is a breakthrough area of healthcare that seeks to repair or regenerate damaged tissue in the body. Techniques such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections or tissue-derived allografts therapy utilize natural substances to kickstart the body’s own healing mechanisms. For shoulder pain, these methods aim to promote healing and alleviate discomfort.

What is regenerative medicine for shoulder pain?

PRP injection is an advanced regenerative therapy technique involving injecting concentrated doses of platelets – cells vital to healing processes – into an injury site to release growth factors which promote new cell and tissue formation. PRP has proven successful at relieving various musculoskeletal ailments including shoulder pain.

Tissue-derived allografts therapy involves the injection of allografts, cells that can differentiate into various cell types. These allografts can stimulate the regeneration of damaged tissues, thus promoting healing in the shoulder. Adult tissue-derived allografts, which can be harvested from various tissues in the body, can differentiate into specific cell types found in the tissues they originate from.

How long does it take for regenerative therapy to work?

Regenerative therapy’s efficacy depends on several factors including treatment protocol, severity of injury or condition and individual patient biology. Some may feel relief within days while for others it could take several weeks or months before reaping full rewards of their treatments – your timeline will depend entirely on you and any treatments prescribed by healthcare practitioners.

Examples of regenerative medicine for shoulder pain:

PRP Injections: PRP injections stimulate the body’s natural healing processes through the administration of a concentrated dose of platelets into the injured area. These platelets release growth factors that promote the production of new cells and tissues.

Tissue-derived Allografts Therapy: Tissue-derived allografts therapy involves the injection of allografts, capable of differentiating into various cell types, to stimulate the regeneration of damaged tissues and promote healing in the shoulder.

Other Treatments: There are other regenerative medicine options one can consider,  besides PRP injections and tissue-derived allografts therapy, for example, Prolotherapy, which involves the injection of a solution to stimulate collagen production and repair damaged tissue, and Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT), a method that injects a mixture of natural substances to stimulate the body’s healing process.

Regenerative medicine, encompassing techniques like PRP injections and tissue-derived allografts therapy, offers a promising treatment option for shoulder pain. These treatments may offer relief to those who have not found success with other therapies. Consult with a qualified healthcare specialist, such as Dr. Ilana Etelzon, to determine if regenerative therapy is right for you.

Who is a candidate for regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine for shoulder pain is not suitable for everyone. The best candidates are those who have tried other treatments without success or those with specific injuries or conditions that may benefit from this kind of treatment. A consultation with a qualified healthcare professional is necessary to determine if regenerative therapy is the best course of action for you. Your specialist will take into account the severity of your condition, your overall health and medical history, and your treatment goals when deciding if regenerative therapy is a viable option.

What Conditions Does Regenerative Medicine Treat?

Doctors use regenerative medicine for a broad range of pain-causing conditions. More uses keep emerging with new research. Diseases and injuries that benefit from regenerative medicine procedures include:

  • Rotator cuff tears. If you’ve damaged the tendons and ligaments supporting your arm at the shoulder joint, your doctor may recommend regenerative therapy.
  • Knee conditions. Your knee is the largest and most complex joint in your body. Dr. Etelzon uses regenerative medicine procedures to treat painful conditions in your knee, such as knee osteoarthritis, ACL or PCL partial tears and meniscal injuries, as an alternative to knee injections. <Link to Knee Injections>
  • Spinal conditions. Most spinal conditions cause debilitating pain. Your pain management specialist may recommend regenerative therapies for such conditions as arthritis of the spine and sacroiliac joint.
  • Other joint problems. Regenerative medicine works for painful conditions in the hips, wrists, elbows and ankles.

After a diagnosis, your NYC pain management doctor discusses the underlying condition and the best treatment approach. Dr. Ilana Etelzon uses a unique approach by combining many of these regenerative procedures to form a more potent result for your condition.

  • Dear Doctor Etelzon, Thank you again. I am starting to feel more like myself again...I couldn't say the problem is totally gone, but a big weight has been lifted...Today...I decided to go and do my nails which I did not do for a long time after the incident. I also asked my daughter if we could go to the park. These are things I normally enjoy but forgot about them for a few months now.
