Shoulder Pain: Non-surgical Therapy
Have you been told that drugs, steroid injections or surgery are your only options to treat your shoulder pain? LifePlus Stem Cell therapies provide a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair damage.
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.
