Have you ever dislocated, separated, or broken your shoulder? Are you employed in an occupation that requires repetitive twisting, turning, or bending of the upper body? Do you have bone deformities from trauma or other conditions that may eventually interfere with the normal function of one or both of your shoulders? You could be at risk for degenerative joint disease, also known as osteoarthritis (OA) of the shoulder. According to the CDC, OA is the most common form of arthritis. Sadly, with OA, the cartilage padding (which provides a smooth, gliding surface, for the bones interact at the joint) progressively erodes as we grow older, and the symptoms can be devastating. Specifically, when the articular cartilage of the shoulder wears down this causes swelling, pain, and sometimes even bone spurs.
acCELLerate™ combined Stem Cell and PRP therapy, concentrates your platelets and stem cells, to deliver a potent mixture of cells that won’t be a foreign surprise to your body – we have a 0% treatment rejection rate, and a 99% treatment success rate with all of our procedures.
Anatomically speaking, the shoulder is made up of two joints – the acromioclavicular (AC) and the glenohumeral joint. Studies show that OA primarily affects the AC joint, as opposed to the latter. Females are also more likely to be diagnosed with OA than males. According to the CDC, “about 80% of patients with OA have some degree of movement limitation.” If you suffer from pain, decreased or limited range-of-motion, or chronic swelling from OA, we may be able to help you!
