If you suffer with the following shoulder conditions and live in Hurst, TX read on to learn more about how Stem Cell Therapy or other Regenerative Therapy options can help you live a pain-free life!
Rotator Cuff Tears
Shoulder Degeneration and Arthritis
Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Injuries
Sports activities that require repeated overhead movements like lifting weights, swimming, throwing or pitching, and swinging of the arms put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even regular, everyday activities can damage the shoulder such as gardening, hanging curtains, or even scrubbing the floors or walls. Often, injury to the shoulder is difficult to heal, and can easily become a recurring problem, even if the immediate pain has subsided. Once ligaments and tissues have been damaged, scar tissue and inflammation can continue to form and build. It is also common for the same injury to reappear, and flare up at later times.
Shoulder injuries can now be treated with regenerative medicine. Depending on the type of injury, Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ uses a combination of two or more of the following: Stem cell therapy, amniotic cell therapy, platelet rich plasma and advanced laser therapy. Our program is no longer exclusive to the elite athlete. It is for anyone suffering from shoulder injuries and seeking a more permanent solution to shoulder pain and alternatives to prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.
Regenerative Medicine For Rotator Cuff Tears
Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint in which the ball of your upper arm bone fits into the socket of your shoulder blade. The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles that come together as tendons forming a covering around the head of the upper arm bone keeping the arm bone firmly attached to the socket of the shoulder blade (scapula).
Rotator cuff tears usually develop gradually due to stress, overuse and natural wear and tear. People who repeatedly lift their arm overhead are more vulnerable to overuse tears. These include athletes such as tennis players, swimmers, weight lifters and baseball pitchers. Those with arthritis in their shoulders also have a higher propensity for rotator cuff tears. Unfortunately, rotator cuff tears produce a lot of pain and also contribute to instability in the shoulder joint. If it is severe, there may be weakness or an inability to lift the arm.
Atlas Medical Center’s JointRenew Program™ uses a combination of regenerative cell therapies to aid in the recovery of rotator cuff injuries. Regenerative Cell Therapies such as platelet rich plasma therapy, stem cells, and amniotic cell therapy take a high concentration of growth factors and cytokines, (cells that are vital in the repair process) and use them to help repair the rotator cuff muscles. Inflammation and aging slows down the natural production of these cells, and the development of scar tissue limits the range of motion needed for proper rehabilitation. Using concentrated levels of these cells can quickly reduce pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. Most importantly, these cells can help aide in the repair of these damaged tissues ultimately allowing you to avoid shoulder surgery.
Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Degeneration
Degeneration of the shoulder joints is usually a progressive condition that evolves and worsens over time. Shoulder degeneration occurs when the cartilage that protects and surrounds the bones begins to wear down. Without this cushioning between the bones, movement causes friction within the joint. This friction causes pain, inflammation, swelling, and can lead to the development of bone spurs.
Our JointRenew Program™ is an advanced regenerative medical procedure that uses two or more of the following treatments: Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma, Amniotic Cell Therapy and Advanced Non-Surgical Laser Therapy to optimize healing. This combination allows the greatest number of regenerative cells and the latest technology to work for you-to get you out of pain, regenerate the joint, and improve your mobility.
Regenerative Medicine for Shoulder Bursitis
The larger joints of the body contain small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae that provide cushioning between muscles, bones and tissues, allowing them to move smoothly without friction. Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more of these bursae, and often occurs within the shoulder joint, causing stiffness and making movement painful.
The best treatments for bursitis aim to reduce the inflammation that is causing the pain and stiffness. Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ is a revolutionary treatment protocol that takes concentrated amounts of healing cells, and uses them directly in the area of inflammation and damage. These non-surgical procedures are considered a safe and effective way to naturally alleviate shoulder bursitis pain.
Since 2001, we have been helping patients get relief from shoulder pain even after other conventional treatments such as medications, cortisone injections, physical therapy and surgery have failed. Atlas’ unique, regenerative JointRenew Program™ is customized depending on your age, health, diagnosis and severity of your condition. The program can include a combination of two or more of the following treatments: Stem Cell Therapy, Amniotic Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, and Advanced Cold Laser Therapy. The integration of treatments allows us to help accelerate the healing process by increasing the number of regenerative cells and improving blood flow to the area; which ultimately help relieve pain and aid in repair, rebuilding and regenerating the tissues in the joint. Unlike ‘traditional’ treatments that simply just mask the pain and are temporary, regenerative medicine treats the root of the problem and has sustainable results. We have a very high clinical success rate with treating even some of the more difficult conditions. In addition, our Board Certified, skilled, and experienced Medical professionals perform all injections under ultrasound or Fluoroscopy guidance leaving you confident that the regenerative cells are being injected into the TARGETED area— which allow for the greatest chance for success!
