Shoulder Pain Treatment

If you suffer from chronic shoulder pain due to arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis or an old injury, or you’ve recently injured your rotator cuff or suffered a ligament or tendon sprain or tear, then you may benefit from physical therapy, traditional orthopedic care, and/or non-surgical stem cell injections.

Can stem cells heal shoulders?

Biologic augmentation of rotator cuff repair with mesenchymal stem cells during arthroscopy improves healing and prevents further tears: a case-controlled study.

This was a controlled 10-year study of rotator cuff repair in which the doctors repaired rotator cuffs in 90 patients. One half of the patients received their own concentrated bone marrow in the shoulder while the other half did not.

The patients who received their own concentrated bone marrow faired significantly better than those who did not. At six months the 100% of the patients who receive bone marrow were healed completely versus 67% in those who did not.

Ten years after the treatment 87% of the patients in the bone marrow group still had intact rotator cuffs compared to 44% in the other group. (see Figure 1)

Among the bone marrow group the more cells that received more mesenchymal stem cells and other progenitor cells (quality of the bone marrow was better) had better and more complete repairs.

Lastly, MRI imaging confirmed that the rotator cuffs of patients treated with stem cells were much thicker that those who did not receive any stem cells.

What do our patients say?

I am a Master Swimmer and I really need my shoulder! The good news: The doctor predicted that, with the help of my own stem cells and amniotic tissue product, I would be doing the breaststroke at 8 weeks and freestyle at 12…..and he was right! Oh — and did he mention cross-country skiing? No…..but I tried it anyway, and felt pretty good at the 8-week mark.

I feel remarkably well and I am very grateful to the doctor, as well as his kind and supportive staff. Living in South Dakota, I have valued the phone consults and encouraging words immensely.

I have been downhill skiing at Grand Targhee this week in deep powder with minimal discomfort (only during use of my polls in flat spots) — but mostly having a blast! – Ann S.
