How is shoulder pain diagnosed?
To identify the underlying cause of your shoulder pain, your specialist at McKenna Orthopedics conducts a comprehensive examination.

What treatments can improve my shoulder pain?

The team at McKenna Orthopedics specializes in stem cell therapy and may recommend it as part of your treatment plan for shoulder pain.
How can stem cells improve my shoulder pain?
Stem cell therapy may help improve your shoulder pain by reducing inflammation and helping your body regenerate new, healthier tissue to replace diseased or damaged tissue. The specialists at McKenna Orthopedics combine your bone marrow stem cells with an amniotic tissue allograft that contains more than 100 different growth factors and 60 times more prostaglandins than other forms of stem cell therapy, including WNT4, which is the single most important molecule needed for wound healing.
The prostaglandins in the stem cell therapy significantly inhibit inflammation, which allows the body to move on to the tissue regeneration phase a lot faster for a quicker recovery.
The team at McKenna Orthopedics offers stem cell therapy as a nonsurgical injection or as a stem cell enhanced surgery.
