    Platelet Rich Plasma / Shoulder

    Im in my 50's, about 190lbs, 5'9"s and in pretty good shape. I've augered on my left shoulder enough times since i began riding MTB in my mid 30s that now its become a permanent injury that seems to be getting progressively worse. Reading that last sentence i had to say to myself "**** dude what do you expect?"..but anyway. I've tired stabilizing it and muscles around it using weights, rest and heat/cold before and after workouts and rides but over time its proving not to be working. Whatever gains i was experiencing with the lifting are diminishing, the injury is becoming more frequent and the recovery periods are getting longer. I have yet to have it evaluated in order to see if PRP is even in the cards but i'd like to hear from anyone, first-hand please, who might have had this done so that when i do get it evaluated and am told what my choices might be i can make a educated decision based on my research on the subject. TIA.

    Well you've come to the right place. One of my best friends is an expert MD regarding this - Dr. Bill Cimikoski. The KEY is to get it done with STEM CELLS! That way it actually regrows degenerated cartilage. Same shoulder - awesome results for me. In fact we rode Park City the day after my surgery. I make a cameo appearance in this vid during my surgery which was filmed for their infomercial:

    Highly HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! You won't be sorry!

    Have FUN!

    PS - I had 3 prior laproscopic shoulder surgeries, by renown sports surgeon Dr. Jonathan Greenleaf, to repair torn ligaments beforehand (thanks to tearing out my repairs in the park/pipe before fully healing). My shoulder was TORE UP to say the least. This was the best thing that happened to me as I no longer have chronic pain. It's still not 100% but it's to where I can totally live with it now!
