What causes shoulder pain?

Shoulders are some of the most complex parts of our bodies—an intersection of several joints that combine with tendons and muscles, allowing us an incredibly diverse range of motion. As a result, shoulders often become a problem area due to:

  • Tendon inflammation or tendon tear. Activities that put a lot of pressure on our shoulders, frequently, are among primary causes for bursitis—an inflammation in the bursae—and tendonitis an inflammation in the tendon. With extreme trauma, a tear of the tendon is possible, too, resulting in sharp pain during motion and shoulder instability.
  • Shoulder instability. Another common cause for shoulder pain is the looseness between the ligaments, tendons and muscles around the shoulder. Instability is as likely to be caused by gradual shoulder overuse as by a sudden trauma.
  • Arthritis. The most common type of arthritis found in shoulders is osteoarthritis, otherwise called the “wear and tear arthritis.” As the name suggests, the condition is mostly related to your age, with the symptoms of swelling, stiffness and pain starting to show during middle age.
  • Fractures.In rarer cases, the pain in your shoulder could be caused by a fracture. This is, however, fairly easy to diagnose, as the pain is sharp, and the bruising and swelling around the shoulder area are pronounced. Fractures usually happen as a result of an unsuccessful fall from standing height.

Interview with Dr. Otten: What Causes Shoulder Pain, and How to Treat It?

Shoulder pain can significantly interfere with everyday activities, and the traditional orthopaedic response would be to undergo a surgery. However, as much as 80% of all shoulder surgeries are unnecessary and can be avoided. Dr. Otten explains why surgery is not the way to go, and what to do instead.

Why is shoulder surgery a bad option?

All surgeries carry serious risks. These involve the possibility of an infection, an unexpected reaction to the anesthesia, or one of dozens of other possible complications. Previously, it has been thought that surgeries are the only way to ease your shoulder pain. New evidence suggests otherwise:

  • Subacromial decompression, a popular form of surgery aimed to tackle chronic shoulder pain, has been found to be no more effective than placebo treatment by the University of Oxford professor David Beard
  • According to Le et al, 2014, the chance of re-tearing a shoulder rotator cuff after a repair surgery can go as high as 94%

CELLAXYS Shoulder Therapy® employs only non-invasive treatments that enhance your body’s ability to heal itself—like stem cell therapy. Instead of engaging in risky surgeries that are highly doubtful in their effectiveness, our doctors use stem cells—the natural building block of our bodies—to naturally regenerate the damaged shoulder area.

Stem Cell Therapy Powering Top Athletes

For years now, forms of stem cell therapy have been used by top athletes in adjunction to traditional orthopaedic measures—such as surgery and injections—to heal quicker and grow stronger. Since the late 1990s, a number of leading athletes, including Tiger Woods and Alex Rodriguez, have publically lead the transition away from traditional orthopaedic alternatives such as cortisone (which reduces pain quickly, but damages the joint tissue irreversibly.) With high complication risk and long recovery times of surgery, stem cell therapy has become one of the go-to therapy methods for the sports elite.

With roots in top-level athletics, stem cell therapy focuses on safety and efficiency. Since stem cells are the natural building blocks of our body, there is virtually no risk of rejection; and, since the method is non-invasive, the recovery time is minimal (4-6 weeks).

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Human bodies are made out of small particles called cells—nerve cells, bone cells, blood cells, muscle cells, and so on.

Stem cells are the natural ‘repair’ cells of our bodies. Their ‘job’ is to morph into a type of cell that is damaged and replace it. For example, when you suffer an injury, it is your stem cells that are trying to regenerate the damaged tissue. Stem cells are involved at every stage of human life—right from the conception.

During CELLAXYS Shoulder Therapy®, stem cells are harvested from your body, processed into a more concentrated form, and re-injected precisely into the location of the injury (to repair the damage).

This way, your body’s natural healing resources are right where they’re needed most.
