Frozen shoulder treatment with therapy and stem cells.

Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a condition characterized by global stiffness of the gleno humeral joint. Diabetes is a big risk factor. However in non diabetics, other degenerative conditions of the structures within the shoulder joint can give rise to a secondary frozen shoulder. These are partial rotator cuff tears, biceps tendonitis, labral tears, fractures etc. In the MRI below one can identify the pathology. There is thickening of the inferior joint capsule and degeneration of the labral attachment at the top. This is a case of secondary frozen shoulder. A new non invasive treatment is available in my practice to release stiffness in an accelerated manner. Following full mobilization, I propose to inject stem cells into the damaged tendons and labrum. See for more information about shoulder stiffness.
