Osteoarthritis can happen at any age because of injuries or overuse, resulting in rotator cuff tendon tears or soreness. This condition is likely to make your daily movements almost impossible and gradually you will start experiencing inflexibility of the joints. There has been tremendous research work for the treatment of osteoarthritis shoulder in Los Angeles. Based on the current research and clinical studies it is said that moderate to severe cases of osteoarthritis and serious tendon injuries can be treated effectively with BMC. BMC is an acronym for Bone Marrow Concentrate. Bone marrow is the elastic tissue found in the vacant interior of bones.

The bone marrow of an adult body is able to produce new blood cells, together with regenerative cells. These cells are taken out from the patient's hip bone and used for BMC therapy whenever needed.

BMC injections are formed of concentrated regenerative cells which are acquired from a patient's own bone marrow. The surgeon extracts a small amount of the patient's bone marrow and rotates it in a very high speed it in a centrifuge for producing a concentrate that is later injected in the injured area. Although extraction of these types of cells are difficult and requires attention, technological improvements have made the process of generating regenerative cells easier with simple laboratory method. Bone marrow cells are considered important for quick healing process as they are able to replicate themselves into an assortment of tissues.
