Shoulder Rotator Cuff


Treatment Starts with a Diagnosis…

Seeking medical attention to get a diagnosis for any joint pain is your first move toward a healthy lifestyle. Remember self-care and immediate attention to pain are the answers to solving a lifetime of physical suffering and exorbitant medical costs. In most pain management cases involving joints, Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy from Florida Stem CellMD in Fort Lauderdale may be your answer to no operations and relieving daily discomfort. Dr. Neel Amin’s innovative treatments have an 85% chance of complete recuperation with only one 15-minute injection of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Amniotic Cells, and/or Mesenchymal Stem Cells.



DIAGNOSIS: Rotator Cuff Tears

Your rotator cuff in not a cuff; it’s a group of four tendons and muscles that form a protective shield over the top of your arm bone in your shoulder socket. It also helps you lift and rotate your arm. If you tear even one tendon in the rotator cuff, whether partially or fully, it cannot attach properly. The damage always gets worse if not treated. And the longer you leave a rotator cuff injury untreated, the worse the consequences get. Rotator cuff tears are common in adults.

Fortunately, PRP, amniotic cell therapy, and stem cell therapy offer alternative options. As an effective therapy that promotes rotator cuff healing, these treatments help you avoid further complications, because they treat the problem at its source.

Persistent Shoulder Pain

Thoracic outlet syndrome is the term used to describe a group of disorders. Your thoracic outlet is the space between your lower neck and upper chest, where you a group of nerves and blood vessels combine. When those nerves and/or blood vessels are compressed, irritated or injured, you feel pain.

The anti-inflammatory property of regenerative cell therapy for shoulders is beneficial. Reduced swelling means relieving compression and taking pressure off your nerves and blood vessels.

Painful AC Joint Separation

Acromioclavicular (AC) joint separation occurs when your collarbone and shoulder blade have separated. When a disruption in your AC joint exists, resulting in pain and instability in your entire arm, sleeping on your affected side or attempting overhead movements cause severe pain.

Physiology of the Shoulder


The ball and socket joint of your shoulder is notoriously unstable, because it is relatively shallow. Your labrum is a soft rim of cartilage that lines your socket, making it a little deeper. When this cartilage tears or begins to weaken over time, it has the potential to compromise the joint. Labral tears or degeneration also weaken tendon attachments.

Our regenerative medicine treatments involve injecting mesenchymal Stem Cells into your shoulder, where they promote your body’s own healing process and begin reproducing stem cells for use in repairing the injury. Not only do they strengthen the joint, reduce pain, and improve mobility, the stem cells also promote the growth of new cartilage.

Stem cell therapy done properly by Dr. Neel Amin, M.D. can dramatically ease your pain and discomfort. This minimally invasive procedure strengthens and stabilizes your ligaments and encourages correct healing in the entire joint.

Shoulders play such a huge role in everyday activities that you may take them for granted. Rotator cuff tears, arthritis of the shoulder joint, thoracic outlet syndrome, labral tears or degeneration, rotator cuff tendonitis, AC joint separation and recurrent shoulder dislocations play havoc with your life when they strike.


Regenerative medicine for the shoulders can lead to remarkable results when provided by an experienced pain specialist who understands shoulder pain. Your shoulders are the more complicated joints in your body. You probably never took time to appreciate everything your shoulders but they can easily become the source of your pain. A functioning shoulder joint is involved in almost every move your arm makes. To work properly, every part of your joints needs to work together properly and efficiently.

Your shoulder is only as strong as its weakest component. A single problem left untreated can lead to a domino effect of problems down the road. This is where the versatility of stem cell therapy comes in handy. An experienced pain specialist such as Dr. Neel Amin, M.D. can safely treat a variety of shoulder problems with regenerative therapies and break the cycle of further damage.

The Problem Is

The problem with complex joints is that they have a lot of moving parts. Anything can go wrong. Many different ways exist to get hurt, including:

  • A fall or forceful impact.
  • Isolated damage to your arm bone.
  • Shoulder socket
  • Collar bone.
  • Cartilage damage or degeneration.
  • Problems with nerves and vessels.
  • Issues with muscles, tendons or ligaments
  • Arthritis in the shoulder joint

Our Treatment For pain

Regardless of the location or the severity of your shoulder pain, mesenchymal stem cell therapy can address it in a simple and effective way. A minimal outpatient procedure that takes less than 15 minutes can decrease your pain and help your body heal itself. And while the results aren’t always immediate, they can last a lifetime. Today’s studies show an 80-85% success rate for stem cell rejuvenation therapy.

Sometimes, the simple solutions work best. A minimally invasive stem cell treatment encourages your body to do exactly what it was designed to do: heal itself. Stem cells are the building blocks of your body. Though as you get older, stem cell begin to get lazy and complacent. This is when regenerative medicine can reactivate these “dormant stem cells. They ease the pain and help heal:

  • Rotator cuff tears.
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Arthritis of the shoulder joint
  • Arthritis of the shoulder joint
  • Labral tears or degeneration.
  • AC joint separation.
  • Labral tears or degeneration.
  • AC joint separation.
  • Recurrent should dislocations.

When It Keeps Happening

Dislocating your shoulder means you have separated your arm bone from your shoulder socket. Not only is this a traumatic injury, but also after you have dislocated your shoulder once, it is easier to do again. This condition is known as recurrent shoulder dislocations.

Without stem cell injections, the damage and instability caused by the dislocations will never fully heal. Regenerative therapy treats the entire shoulder dislocation—tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone, and all.

Wear and Tear Problems

Osteoarthritis, often called a wear-and-tear condition, causes swelling and stiffness in your joints. It is a degenerative condition that can affect any joint. If left untreated, arthritis of the shoulder joint has the potential to wear away the smooth cartilage that serves to cushion and protect your shoulder.

Traditional treatment for osteoarthritis in the shoulder may rely on joint replacement surgery or pain medications. Without cartilage, the bones of your joint continue to rub directly against each other. Stem cell therapy for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis can regenerate your cartilage, reduce your swelling, and relieve your pain.
