How The Two Regenexx® Procedures Work
Stem Cell Treatments
Shoulder stem cell treatments can help give your body the boost it needs to heal a wide range of conditions and ailments. Stem cells can do this naturally, but as we age the number of stem cells we have diminishes. Our procedures can help overcome this.
First, we extract stem cells from your bone marrow. These stem cells tend to develop into cartilage and bone cells, making them ideal for addressing orthopaedic complaints. Once extracted, a concentrated does of these stem cells will be injected to the problem area of the shoulder, assisting with the body’s natural healing process.
Blood Platelet Treatments
If your shoulder complaint is muscle or tissue related, a blood platelet treatment may be able to help alleviate the condition. These are applied in a concentrated dose to the shoulder and act as growth factors – stimulating the stem cells to repair the damaged tissue.
Our blood platelet treatments are purer and more concentrated than the ones made from automated machines. They can be used as a standalone treatment for your shoulders or used in combination with our stem cell treatment for shoulders.
