Shoulder Injury Regeneration

By Steven Meier

As the most active and overused joint in the body, virtually everyone is at risk for a shoulder injury at some point, from professional athletes to sedentary office workers. There are different types of shoulder injuries, and as every patient and injury are different, the treatment options and severity of symptoms, as well as the recovery process, will typically vary from patient to patient.

Some of the most common shoulder injuries include:

  • Arthritis and shoulder joint degeneration
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Cartilage tears
  • AC joint separation
  • Shoulder instability
  • Shoulder decompression
  • Shoulder capsule release

Shoulder Injury Regeneration

Traditionally, the treatment options for this type of injury have primarily consisted of conservative treatments, such as rest, physical therapy, and medication for pain management, followed by surgery in instances where the injury did not respond to conservative treatment. In cases where the patient suffered irreversible degeneration of the shoulder joint, surgical transplantation of an artificial joint or connective tissue was sometimes used, as connective tissue and cartilage does not regrow or regenerate on its own once it has eroded.

Shoulder injury regeneration treatments are a new option for patients suffering from shoulder pain and chronic injuries. Dr. Steven Meier, an orthopedic surgeon and regenerative medicine expert at Meier Orthopedic Sports and Regenerative Medicine in Beverly Hills, is an industry leader and pioneer in the use of regenerative medicine to heal shoulder and orthopedic injuries and conditions. Whether a patient has suffered a torn rotator cuff from years of playing sports, like tennis or basketball, suffered trauma in a car accident, or through the progressive wear and tear on the shoulder joint associated with osteoarthritis, regenerative medicine can offer new treatment approaches using stem cells and platelet-rich plasma, a substance that naturally occurs in the human body and can be used to differentiate into connective tissue, or infuse the body with enhanced healing properties.
