Shoulder Labrum Repair Stem Cell Treatment
Natural Process. Quick Recovery. Remarkable Results!
The phenomenon of a shoulder labral tear
The labrum of the shoulder is a fibrocartilage structure that works as a glove to help hold and support the arm bone (humerus) into the shoulder socket. A tear in the labrum can result in recurrent deep shoulder pain in addition to micro-instability and inflammation that contributes to shoulder arthritis. Often overlooked, the shoulder joint environment surrounding the labrum can become “catabolic” with a labral tear meaning that it contains an increased level of destructive enzymes that destroy the shoulder joint over time when left untreated.
Downfalls of shoulder labral surgery
Shoulder labral surgery is an invasive procedure that involves cutting, shaving (debriding) the torn labral tear. It makes intuitive sense, and there is evidence to support, that removing tissue within the joint like the labrum causes further arthritis to the shoulder joint in years to come. Complicating factors include prolonged downtime, hardware misalignment and risks such as infection, frozen shoulder, pneumonia, stroke, and heart attack.
A Bio-Restorative Stem Cell procedure for shoulder labral tear
Traditionally, the only treatment for those with shoulder labral tear was band-aid medications, injections, or an invasive shoulder surgery in which the torn labrum is cut, shaved, debrided and taken out. A Bio-Restorative Stem Cell procedure for those with a shoulder labral tear is an ultra-minimally invasive same-day injection procedure designed to alleviate pain, improve function, and slow shoulder joint degeneration with an aim at joint preservation. In addition to being less invasive than surgery, the procedure conveys less risk of complications and in many cases less downtime. Though it is not covered by insurance carriers, out of pocket costs for this procedure are often comparable to shoulder replacement surgery when considering copayments and loss productivity associated with surgery. Most importantly, this joint preserving procedure allows you to keep your own hip labrum tissue rather than having it shaved down or cut out. In other words, the Stem Cells from your own body harness your own body’s healing capability to naturally restore, reduce pain and get you back to doing the things you love.
