Your shoulders are one of the more complex joints in the body, capable of a significant range of motion and a key part of your upper body strength. It’s because of their complexity that shoulders are prone to injury. Our modern lifestyle of sitting at desks and tables has ruined our natural posture, and as such, we have become used to allowing our shoulders to roll forwards. Our shoulders are meant to sit back, where they are most stable and move within the joint naturally. If you attempt to add loaded weight to your shoulders when they are improperly set, you can seriously injure the joint, ligament, surrounding muscle as well as the rotator cuff.
According to this study, updated in 2020, by the National Institute of Health, rotator cuff injuries are the most prevalent tendon injury that is sought treatment for with approximately 30% of adults age over 60 experiencing a tear, and 62% of adults over 80. The specialists at Stem Cellutions have provided treatment for patients of all ages with regenerative medicine therapies like platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy.
Leading Causes of Shoulder Injury
Like the other joints in the body, your shoulders can fall victim to traumatic impacts like falls or car accidents, or more chronic injury due to degrading joint health due to age-related wear and tear. The following is a list of common causes of shoulder injury:
A fall or forceful impact
Isolated damage to your arm bone, shoulder socket, or collar bone
Cartilage damage or degeneration
Problems with nerves and vessels
Issues with muscles, tendons, or ligaments
Arthritis in the shoulder joint

Symptoms of Shoulder Injuries
If you are experiencing one or a combination of the following symptoms, you should consult with a specialist as soon as possible
Persistent dull ache
Pain when making specific movements
Grinding or crackling when moving the arm
Limited range of motion
It is important to get these symptoms diagnosed and treated, otherwise an underlying condition could be allowed to worsen.
What the most effective shoulder therapy is will depend on the severity and type of injury you are suffering from. Pulled or lightly torn muscles may only require over the counter medication paired with physical therapy. But any joint or ligament centered injury will require a more comprehensive form of therapy. The specialists at Stem Cellutions help our patients avoid unnecessary surgery by providing cutting edge regenerative medicines like PRP and stem cell injections.
Stem cells can be extracted from adipose (fat) or bone marrow and are packed with unprogrammed cells that, once introduced to an injury site, stimulate the process of cellular regeneration.
PRP uses an extract from your blood that has been separated and condensed into a concentrated dose of plasma. Packed with the building blocks for cellular growth, it provides an injury site with everything it needs to replace damaged tissue.
