Shoulder Sprain Treatment

Glenohumeral ligament sprains can cause the shoulder to dislocate. The ligaments in the shoulder play a large role in keeping the complex shoulder joint together while allowing for a full range of movement. Chronic spraining can be treated surgically, but new cell-based, platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments, and regenerative medicine techniques offered by the Institute of Regenerative Medicine are less invasive and can be more effective.

Non-surgical Glenohumeral Ligament Repair

Some forms of shoulder sprains can heal simply through rest or through physical therapy. However, chronic glenohumeral ligament sprains never fully heal. This is why they occur over and over again. The traditional treatment for chronic sprains in the shoulder has always been surgery, but new forms of treatment and regenerative medicine procedures have now been developed which offer several benefits over surgery.

Cell-based therapy and treatments using PRP help the ligaments to regenerate and heal. With more ligament tissue available, they become stronger, greatly reducing the chances of sprains in the future.

Please note that while the above conditions represent most of those that can be treated using either PRP injections or PRP injection in conjunction with repair cell injections, the specific method of treatment will be based on your age and health at the time of treatment, the severity of your condition and other factors. Learn if you are eligible for cell-based therapy.
