A complex overlap of tendons & nerves

There are many different causes of shoulder pain, including injury, infection, and arthritis. The shoulder is one of the most complicated joints in the body with various muscles, tendons, nerves, and ligaments that all play a role in its function.

The risks of shoulder surgery

Shoulder pain can be caused by a number of factors, poor posture, repetitive strain, poor techniques in sport or work and even referred pain from the neck.

While shoulder surgical procedures are common, recovery can be painful, requiring a lengthy rehabilitation.

Possible surgical complications should also be considered such as frozen shoulder, nerve pain, infection risk, nerve injury and Chondrolysis (a rare but serious complication which causes damage to the cartilage of the joint and can lead to early progression of arthritis). Those seeking alternatives to surgery may choose Stem Cell therapies.

Alternatives to surgery for shoulder pain:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®)
  • Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Common shoulder conditions include: Rotator Cuff Tear, Shoulder Labrum Tear, Shoulder Osteoarthritis, Shoulder Bursitis, Rotator Cuff Tear.

Stem cells may stimulate cellular proliferation and local repair processes, and by reducing inflammation, resulting in pain relief and improved function of the shoulder.
