Revitalize Your Shoulders: The Power of Regenerative Injection Therapy

Are you tired of the constant shoulder pain that’s been nagging you for what seems like forever? Have you tried everything from physical therapy to cortisone shots, but to no avail? Well, it’s high time you give your shoulders the care they deserve. Let’s explore how you can revitalize your shoulders with the power of regenerative injection therapy.

The Common Culprits of Shoulder Pain

Rotator Cuff Tears

A tear in the rotator cuff, a group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder, can cause aching pain and limit your arm’s mobility. It’s a common injury among athletes and the elderly.


Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac that reduces friction in your joints. When it flares up in the shoulder, it can cause pain and stiffness.


Arthritis in the shoulder can result from wear and tear, autoimmune disease, or a previous injury. It can cause chronic pain, swelling, and reduced range of motion.

Labral Tears

A tear in the labrum, the ring of cartilage that surrounds the shoulder socket, can cause pain, instability, and a catching sensation in the shoulder.


Shoulder impingement occurs when the top of the shoulder blade puts pressure on the underlying soft tissues when the arm is lifted away from the body. Over time, this can lead to pain and limited movement.

Frozen Shoulder

Also known as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. It typically begins gradually, worsens over time, and then resolves, usually within one to three years.

Regenerative Injection Therapy: A Ray of Hope

If you’ve tried traditional treatments and they’ve fallen short, don’t lose hope. Regenerative injection therapy could be the solution you’ve been looking for. This innovative treatment uses your body’s own healing mechanisms to repair damaged tissues and alleviate pain.

Revitalize Your Shoulders: The Power of Regenerative Injection Therapy

Regenerative injection therapy is a game-changer for those suffering from chronic shoulder pain. It’s not a one-size-fits-all solution, but a personalized treatment plan designed to address your specific condition.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection

PRP therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. This treatment is particularly effective for conditions like tendinitis, bursitis, and minor tears.

Super Concentrated Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection

At the esteemed Centeno-Schultz Clinic, the inception of Regenexx’s Super Concentrated PRP interventions ushered in a new era of enhanced PRP therapy. Regenexx’s Super Concentrated PRP procedures are an advanced form of PRP treatment that utilizes lab-processed PRP mixtures that have been shown to deliver up to an impressive 10 – 40x times more platelet concentrations than the standard “bloody” PRP.  In fact, our Super Concentrated Platelet-Rich Plasma, because of its concentration levels of platelets, takes on an amber color.

Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMAC) Injection

For more severe conditions like moderate to severe arthritis or tendon tears, BMAC injections can be a powerful treatment. BMAC is a concentrate of regenerative stem cells obtained from your own bone marrow. These cells have the ability to develop into different types of cells, which can help to regenerate and repair tissues.

The Regenexx Advantage

At our state-of-the-art Regenexx laboratory, we ensure that our PRP and bone marrow concentrates are of the highest quality. All injections are autologous, meaning they are derived only from your body’s tissues. We always perform injections with image guidance, including ultrasound and fluoroscopy (X-ray), to ensure precision and effectiveness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is regenerative injection therapy?

Regenerative injection therapy is a form of treatment that uses the body's own healing mechanisms to repair damaged tissues and alleviate pain.

What conditions can be treated with regenerative injection therapy?

Regenerative injection therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including rotator cuff tears, bursitis, arthritis, labral tears, impingement, and frozen shoulder.

What is the difference between PRP and BMAC injections?

PRP injections use a concentration of a patient's own platelets to accelerate healing, while BMAC injections use a concentrate of regenerative stem cells obtained from the patient's own bone marrow.

Why are Regenexx PRP Mixtures are better than Standard PRP?

In many clinics that offer PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments, the usual way of making PRP is by taking some of a patient's blood and spinning it in a simple machine right beside the bed. This machine works to separate the plasma and gather up blood platelets, which are then immediately taken out and used for the injection. However, these machines aren't very good at getting rid of unwanted cells from what ends up being mixed together. Our lab tests show that white and red blood cells can get in the way of the stem cells that the platelets are trying to help, and might cause too much inflammation or swelling after the injection.

Our type of PRP is better because it's purer, has more concentrated platelets, and can be adjusted to meet individual needs. That's because it's made in a lab by a trained technician who can separate and concentrate all the good stuff in the blood and get rid of the bad stuff.

Are these treatments safe?

Yes, these treatments are generally safe as they use substances derived from your own body. However, as with any procedure, there can be risks and side effects. It's important to discuss these with your doctor.

How long does it take to see results?

The timeline for seeing results can vary depending on the specific condition and the individual's overall health. Some patients may see improvement in as little as a few weeks, while others may take several months.

Are these treatments a replacement for surgery?

In many cases, regenerative injection therapy can help patients avoid surgery. However, it's not a guaranteed solution for everyone. It's important to discuss your options with your doctor.
