    Shoulders and Arms

     

    Shoulder pain is a common problem that frequently recurs and becomes a chronic issue, even after conventional medical treatment.

     

    If you have chronic shoulder pain, don’t wait to meet with the experienced providers at California Stem Cell Treatment Center.

     

     

    Our specialized providers offer restorative treatments that stimulate healing and provide substantial pain relief.

    To learn more, call one of the offices in Beverly Hills or Rancho Mirage, California, or book an appointment online today.

     

    Additionally, there are several conditions that commonly lead to pain in different parts of the shoulder.

     

    • Osteoarthritis
    • Bursitis
    • Tendonitis
    • Fractures
    • Rotator cuff tears
    • Biceps tendon tears
    • Shoulder dislocations
    • Chronic instability
    • Labral tears (injury to the ring of cartilage around the joint)
    • Frozen shoulder (inner part of the rotator cuff becomes stiff and tight)
    • Shoulder impingement syndrome (arm and shoulder bones rub the rotator cuff)

     

    Sometimes, having a pinched nerve or another problem in the neck can lead to shoulder pain, so it is important to see a specialist that can correctly diagnose your problem.

    What causes shoulders and arms to be in pain?

     

    Shoulder pain can be caused by various factors.
    The shoulder is a complex structure composed of three bones, four joints, multiple ligaments, and the rotator cuff.
    While issues can arise in any of these components, rotator cuff injuries are often associated with pain.
    The rotator cuff comprises a group of four muscles and their tendons, which connect the shoulder blade to the top of the arm bone.
    This cuff-like structure plays a crucial role in stabilizing the joint and facilitating arm movement.
    Due to regular use, the rotator cuff tendons can experience tears and inflammation, resulting in discomfort.

    If you have shoulder pain, chances are you will also experience one or more of the following symptoms:

     

    • Arm weakness
    • Pain when using your arm
    • Difficulty using your arm
    • Muscle spasms
    • Joint clicking
    • Limited range of motion
    • Bruising and swelling
    Shoulder dislocations and labral or rotator cuff tears can lead to chronic shoulder instability and recurrent dislocations.

    How can stem cells help shoulders and arm pain?

     

    California Stem Cell Treatment Center has developed a shoulder joint SVF deployment protocol that attempts to exploit the healing effects of SVF (adipose derived stem cells from your own body).

     

    SVF is injected into the affected joint and radiographic imaging techniques are used to ensure accuracy.
    This is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 3 hours.

    Arm Pain

     

    Most cases of shoulders and arms in pain can be attributed to sudden trauma, such as a sports injury, or overuse injuries that develop gradually due to repetitive arm movements.

     

    These repetitive motions can lead to tears and inflammation in ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

     

    Various conditions can cause arm and elbow pain, including:

     

    • Arthritis
    • Bursitis
    • Tendinitis
    • Fractures
    • Tennis elbow
    • Golfer’s elbow
    • Thrower’s elbow
    • Brachial plexus injury
    • Ligament sprains
    • Biceps tendon rupture
    • Ulnar nerve entrapment

     

    Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, for instance, occur when the tendons connecting forearm muscles to the elbow become inflamed (tendinitis), although each condition affects different tendons.

     

     

    It’s important to note that sudden pain in the left arm could be a potential sign of a heart attack, especially if it is accompanied by chest pain, shortness of breath, or pain in the jaw, neck, or back.

     

    In some cases, arm pain can also originate from neck problems, as a pinched nerve in the neck can cause symptoms such as pain, tingling, burning, or numbness that radiate down the arm.

    Other accompanying symptoms of shoulders and arms in pain may include:

    • Swelling
    • Bruising
    • Tingling
    • Numbness
    • Joint stiffness
    • Weak grip
    • Loss of arm strength
    • Limited movement
    If these symptoms are severe or fail to improve within a few days, it is advisable to seek evaluation and treatment for the underlying issue.

     

    Treatment for arm pain can involve conservative medical care like medications, injections, arm bracing, and physical therapy.

     

    However, it is important to have a specialist diagnose your condition.

     

    Once diagnosed with shoulders and arms in pain, our providers will determine if you are a candidate for treatment with stem cells or you need to be referred out for another treatment.
