At Regenerative Sport, Spine and Spa, 7x Top Doctor Award winner, Pallavi Cherukupally, MD, takes an innovative approach to shoulder pain that helps you rebuild from within using the human body's own natural resources. Called regenerative medicine, Dr. Cherukupally relies on two treatment protocols to bring you long-lasting relief from shoulder pain without the long term harmful effects of steroid injections or potential downtime and complications from surgery.
The platelets in your blood are largely responsible for clotting and stopping bleeding, but their job doesn't end there. Your platelets and blood plasma also contain growth factors that help trigger the healing and rebuilding process in our bodies. By drawing your blood and mechanically separating the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells, we can inject them into areas where you need to stimulate tissue healing in your shoulder.
Stem cells are largely responsible for being the building blocks of our bodies. They help us grow into the adults we are now and aid in the repair of damaged tissues and bones. The problem is that as we age they become less active and the majority of them reside inside of our bone marrow. By harvesting these little building blocks from your body, we can then inject them directly into the damaged tissues of your shoulder and provide those tissues with a concentrated dose of little workers to aid in the repair of those tissues.
The goal of these therapies is to avoid invasive surgical solutions and repetitive use of steroid injections, which can cause collateral tissue damage and long rehabilitation processes. By relying on regenerative medicine, Dr. Cherukupally helps your shoulder heal naturally for the best long-term results.
