Stem Cell Therapy and PRP for Shoulder Injuries
Stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for shoulders may be an ideal nonsurgical alternative for those who suffer from shoulder pain because of a rotator cuff injury or pain related to osteoarthritis, or muscle sprains and strains. Traditional surgery for the shoulder can be difficult because of the complexity of the joint, and it often requires a painful, lengthy rehabilitation process to restore the full range of motion.
Stem cell therapy and PRP may be appropriate for treating:
- Partial rotator cuff tears
- Labral tears
- Mild to moderate osteoarthritis
- Muscle strain/sprain
Stem cell therapy is not able to treat:
- Severe osteoarthritis
- Complete rotator cuff tear
