Regenerative Treatment for Shoulder Pain & Shoulder Bursitis
Are steroid shoulder injections or surgery the only options for shoulder pain treatment?
The shoulder joint is one of the most mobile joints in the human body. The mobility of this joint makes it susceptible to several injuries, especially in athletes who regularly overuse shoulder joint with repetitive overhead movements or athletes who participate in a contact sport. Shoulder injuries, tend to heal slowly and managing shoulder injury is difficult with conventional treatment. Non-surgical Regenerative Cell Therapy for the shoulder is the next-generation treatment that treats the cause of pain, not just the symptoms. Regenerative Therapy is an alternative treatment option for the shoulder pain that has been proven successful by researchers and doctors. The doctors utilise this treatment for a variety of conditions, including rotator cuff tear, shoulder pain arthritis treatment, osteoarthritis, labral tear, shoulder bursitis treatment, frozen shoulder and overuse injuries. Regenerative treatment for shoulder pain is a viable alternative to shoulder replacement surgery.
Shoulder surgery and post-surgical recovery can be painful, requiring a lengthy rehabilitation period to restore strength and mobility. We, at Medica Stem Cells Clinic, provide an alternative to alleviate shoulder pain with Regenerative Treatment procedures like Stromal Vascular Fraction Therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP Therapy. Patients typically experience little or no downtime after Regenerative treatments.
The non-surgical Regenerative Therapy utilises biologic material harvested directly from the patient’s body to help self-heal disease and injury by accelerating healing, regenerating tissue and combatting pain, thus reducing dependency on pain medication or surgery.

Please contact us for a consultation and complete assessment to determine whether or not your condition can be treated with these minimally invasive, non-surgical regenerative procedures.
With so many options out there, you may be wondering what benefits choosing Non-surgical Regenerative Treatments provides. Over all Regenerative Treatments are minimally invasive, non-surgical same day procedures with no risk of rejection, minimal recovery time and minimal worry. You are fully awake and ready to go home within a few hours after injections in the affected area.
Following are the top benefits of Regenerative treatment for Shoulder pain:
Avoid surgery and its risks and many complications
Regenerative Therapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, which gives patients an alternative to painful shoulder surgery and lengthy recovery. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and only takes a few hours. No general anaesthesia is required and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication. Also, resume physical activity much faster than after invasive shoulder surgery.
Minimal post-procedural recovery time
One of the most time consuming factors of any injury is not always the treatment itself, but actually the recovery time. With Regenerative therapies, there is far less risk involved than surgery and recovery time is much shorter compared to surgery.
No use of general anaesthesia
Do you not like the way general anaesthesia makes your feel? Or do you simply get anxious at the thought of being put under? Regenerative Therapy may be just what you need as it does not require the use of general anaesthesia. It provides a safe increasingly effective non-surgical alternative to treating medical conditions using the body’s own natural ability to repair itself without the use of medication.
Same day procedure
The best part, after comprehensive examination and review of your case, blood tests & radio-imaging scans are done to establish a baseline for your pre-existing condition, is that our Regenerative Therapies are a non-invasive treatment and an outpatient same day procedure, where the Consultant will decide which line of Regenerative Therapy is most suited to your case. In certain cases it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol. For some patients however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions.
Safe procedures with No risk of rejection and No communicable disease transmission
Your immune system has no reason to attack your cells and there is no risk of contracting a transmittable infectious disease from a donor patient also. In fact, studies thus far have indicated no safety issues with fat-derived autologous (from self) cells. Because they are your own cells, the risk of rejection is eliminated.
Like any procedure, there is a minute risk of infection at the sample collection and at the shoulder injection site. To minimize that risk the procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions.
In general, Regenerative therapies can be utilised by anyone, regardless of age, race, or gender. However, in order to determine if you are a good candidate and will benefit the most from Regenerative Treatment, you will need to schedule an appointment with our Clinic to have an assessment done by our Consultant, who will review your medical records and determine if you are a qualified candidate for our therapy. The choice of treatment is then at the discretion of the Consultant and is based on your unique case.
There are a number of studies that have been published in the field of Regenerative medicine demonstrating positive results from Regenerative Treatments.
Regenerative therapies have now been utilised in clinical practice to treat degenerative knees, hips, shoulders and other joints for more than five years and are demonstrating excellent results. Patients are seeing a marked reduction in pain as well as improvement in cartilage quality. A variety of well-founded clinical trials have been conducted on Regenerative therapy for management and treatment of chronic pain. The trials concerning Regenerative therapies are widely published online (ex. on PubMed) and readily available for all to access. The use of Regenerative Treatments has proven to be both a safe and effective means of treating many conditions. These treatments allow the body to heal and regenerate in ways that were thought impossible before. Regenerative technology provides a natural alternative to the use of medication and surgeries, which may be more harmful and invasive.
Regenerative Therapy procedures are quickly becoming a first-line treatment for chronic pain, degenerative joint disease, like arthritis or osteoarthritis, providing a minimally invasive option to avoid invasive surgical repair and other various conditions. There are many Medica Stem Cell patient testimonials on our website who have experienced significant improvements in their condition for You to view.
Regenerative Therapy only takes a few hours to complete and is performed in an outpatient setting, no general anaesthesia is required and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication. Patients will be able to go home almost immediately after the injection is done. Since this therapy is an orthobiological treatment that requires time for the cells to restore the damaged areas, patients will not feel the effect of the injection immediately. Most patients will experience reduced pain and improved mobility over time. This is due to the strong anti-inflammatory effect and the growth factors associated with adult mesenchymal cells and SVF.
The first day after the treatment, you might experience mild discomfort at injection site which should not be restrictive, mild pain in the treatment area may persist for a day or two. This can be alleviated by rest and if needed simple pain killers may be prescribed.
Hand, wrist or finger injuries or conditions may or may not require repeat treatment. Typically it is best to wait 3-6 months before considering it.
You will be asked during the period of follow up to keep an accurate record of your progress to compare to your starting point.
The final outcome of the treatment and extent of improvement varies from one patient to another depending on type and severity of the condition, age, etc…
