Many of our patients have chronic issues with shoulder arthritis, dislocations and their rotator cuffs, particularly baseball players. It is possible through stem cells and PRP to repair this muscle tissue damage that is the basic cause of one's pain and immobility.
In the newspaper, athletes like Kobe Byrant and Alex Rodriguez discuss the benefits of PRP and it's effect on their playing ability. Not only can a PRP injection and/or a Stem Cell injection reduce shoulder pain and restore muscle and joint mobility but also acts as a reliable and effective alternative to surgery.
Patients onc told that they need surgery may not have to undergo that grueling process anymore because of the accelerated recovery process involved in Stem Cells and PRP treatments.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cells are everywhere in the body and have a central role in how the body repairs itself. When activities from walking to exercising to accidental traumas damage the body’s cells, stem cells repair and replace these cells. If muscle tissue is damaged, stem cells transform themselves into muscle tissue and replace the damage. One is again like “new”.
When there is a severe injury, there aren’t enough stem cells to quickly repair the damaged tissue. The injury therefore takes much longer to heal and may include long-term complications. At Cross Bay PMR, we add a boost of stem cells to the damaged area. With the area increasingly healed, one has more mobility and suffers less pain.
Stem cells work over several months to heal the injury long after the treatment ends.
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a dense organic material composed of the platelets found in the blood. Platelets are largely responsible for repairing blood vessel damage and in PRP, an additional 30+ growth factors are activated to restore the area of injury.
When PRP is injected into the damaged area, the platelets are signaled to respond and move directly to the injury to repair tissue and blood vessel damage. The result is an area increasingly healed and the activation of a powerful healing process.
Both PRP Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy have high success rates to significantly reduce pain. They help new injuries as well as chronic ones. These treatments are more and more becoming the staple of orthopedic injuries as well as arthritis treatment.
