Vulcan Shoulder supports are commonly used for dislocated shoulder, frozen shoulder, broken collar bone, and rotator cuff injuries. In concept the neoprene support provides therapeutic heat, support and shoulder pain relief. The compression and warmth can also provide pain relief following shoulder surgery.
How does it work?
The support fastens securely around the shoulder with the Velcro straps to provide support and re-assurance following injury. If the injury is mild and you are of good health and not taking any know toxins to your own stem cells, it is possible for some of these injuries to improve. Unfortunately as we age, the vitality of our stem cells and their ability to mount a successful response to injury declines. The result is continued pain due to incomplete healing. Immobilizing the joint also goes against the finding supported by Sen who demonstrated mechanical stress led mesenchynmal stem cells to change into cartilage and bone as opposed to fat.
At the Centeno-Schultz Clinic we are committed to identifying and correcting the underlying program. Prolotherapy often used successfully to treat rotator cuff injuries, AC joint and shoulder dislocations if damaged has occurred to the supporting ligaments.
A non-surgical alternative for partially torn rotator cuff tendons, dislocation of shoulders and acromio-clavicular injuries is the use of your own stem cells. At Regenexx a patient’s own bone-marrow-derived stem cells are isolated, expanded and then injected exactly into the area of damage under intermittent x-ray guidance.
Utilizing your own stem cells (autologous) prevents the transmission of disease.
