What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain can severely limit arm movement, hindering everyday tasks like reaching for objects in overhead cabinets or lifting items above shoulder level. Simple actions such as getting dressed, washing hair, or carrying groceries can become challenging and painful, significantly impacting daily life and independence.

Shoulder pain often stems from various underlying causes, such as:

Reason #1

Rotator Cuff Injuries

Tears or strains in the rotator cuff muscles due to overuse, trauma, or degeneration.

Reason #2

Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

Compression of tendons and bursa in the shoulder joint, typically caused by repetitive overhead motions.

Reason #3

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

Stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint, often resulting from inflammation and thickening of the shoulder capsule.

Reason #4


Degenerative changes in the shoulder joint, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.

Reason #5


Inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the shoulder joint, usually caused by repetitive motions or trauma.

These conditions manifest through a range of symptoms, including inflammation, tenderness, limited range of motion, pain during movement, difficulty using the arm, weakness in the shoulder and arm, audible crackling sensations, and, in cases of infection-induced bursitis, additional signs such as redness and fever.

For What Kind Of Shoulder Pain Is Cellular Therapy Beneficial?

Cellular therapy for shoulder pain, utilizing cellular Biologics treatment, is witnessing rapid growth for its potential to address pain at its source, offering not just temporary relief but also the prospect of long-term healing for damaged tissues.

Our expert team explores cellular therapy as a viable option for various causes of shoulder pain, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Tendinitis and tendinosis
  • Shoulder bursitis
  • Labral injuries (SLAP and Bankart tears)
  • Rotator cuff injuries

While osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis stem from degeneration and autoimmune factors, other conditions on this list often result from repetitive motions, overuse injuries, high-energy activities like pitching, or acute traumas such as shoulder dislocation.

How Do Cellular And Acellular Therapies Provide Relief From Shoulder Pain?

Cellular Biologics possess a remarkable ability for self-renewal and cellular regeneration. Distributed throughout your body, adult stem cells play a pivotal role in healing processes. When an injury occurs, they swiftly migrate to the affected site, undertaking various crucial tasks, from generating new tissues for repair to modulating inflammation and releasing healing-promoting biochemicals like exosomes and cytokines. In cellular therapy, a concentrated dosage of potent cells is precisely injected into the injured tissues of your shoulder. These cells alleviate your pain and actively facilitate tissue healing and regeneration, providing comprehensive relief for your shoulder condition.

Why Is Cellular Therapy A Preferred Treatment Over Joint Replacement Surgery?


Cellular therapy involves injections, avoiding the need for invasive surgical procedures.

Reduced Risk

Cellular therapy carries lower risks with no incisions or anesthesia than surgery.

Faster Recovery

Patients often experience shorter recovery times with cellular therapy, allowing a quicker return to normal activities.

Preservation of Natural Tissue

Cellular therapy promotes tissue regeneration and repair, preserving the integrity of natural structures in the hip joint.

Potential for Long-Term Relief

Cellular therapy offers the potential for long-lasting pain relief compared to surgical interventions by addressing underlying causes and promoting healing.

Hi - I want to leave this review because this facility has one of the most informative, intelligent, kind, and helpful staff by name of Amanda. Amanda is a gem. She spent a lot of time explaining the benefits of the treatments that I was seeking, but also was so HONEST and CONSIDERATE that stated that due to my medical condition, I should not yet seek the desired treatment they office at their facility. Amanda was not only kind, concern, and honest and spoke with much integrity about how I am vulnerable to receive the treatment, but also she offered many many other alternatives that are available and could be helpful. She honestly took such a long time to explain several options, which some did not even was something they offered, but due to my medical condition could be simple and very useful. I may not be able to use their services now and hopefully later, but I am sure going to refer this facility to anyone who is looking to get stem cell treatment.

My mother got a stem cell injection in her hip a few months before her 76th birthday instead of getting another hip replacement. She is so happy with the results and has been living pain free for the past 6+ months. She keeps telling everyone she knows about Dr. Fishman and Stem Cell Institute of Los Angeles and thinks the drive from Riverside County to Encino is worth every penny!

Our Comprehensive Cellular Therapy Process
for Shoulder Pain Relief

Discover how our dedicated team provides a holistic approach to relieving shoulder pain through our comprehensive cellular therapy process. Each step is meticulously designed to address your needs and promote optimal recovery.

Initial Consultation and Evaluation

Your journey into cellular biologic therapy begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Bruce Fishman and Dr. Stem Cell. During this crucial meeting, Dr. Fishman will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays and potentially additional imaging, such as MRI or CT scans, to pinpoint the source of your pain. This comprehensive evaluation helps determine if you’re a suitable candidate for Biocellular therapy.

Preparatory Treatment

Upon approval for cellular biologic therapy, you’ll undergo a preparatory process to optimize your body’s response to the treatment. Two days before your scheduled procedure, you’ll receive a unique IV infusion treatment containing essential vitamins, peptides, and proteins. This infusion enhances cellular function and prepares your body for the upcoming therapy.

Cellular Biologic Injection Procedure

Dr. Fishman will perform the cellular biologic injection procedure using advanced techniques such as fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance to target the damaged tissues causing your pain precisely. Depending on your condition,  cells may be combined with other biologics, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from a sample of your own blood, to accelerate healing and promote tissue repair. Following the procedure, you’ll undergo a second session of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment to enhance the healing process.

Post-Procedure Recovery and Follow-Up

Allowing your body time to rest and recover is essential after the cellular therapy procedure. Most patients experience improvements over the following months as your stem cells work to rebuild tissues and rehabilitate the injury. You’ll have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Fishman four weeks after the procedure for a check-up. If appropriate for your condition, you may receive your first FDA-approved muscle-building Emsculpt treatment at this time. Regular follow-up appointments at 3, 6, and 12 months will monitor your progress and ensure continued improvement.
