We're often asked how to relieve shoulder pain? The answer to that question depends on the source and severity of the pain. Do you have a rotator cuff injury, or torn labrum? Is your pain simply from overuse or sleeping in an awkward position? The first step for us to make is a thorough shoulder diagnosis.
Ask us about alternatives to rotator cuff surgery and other surgeries for shoulder injuries. We treat shoulder pain and injury without surgery or addictive painkillers.
Shoulder Pain Relief
To determine the most appropriate treatment, we will thoroughly examine your shoulder and investigate any swelling, inflammation, or abnormalities. Our doctor will also test your shoulder for strength and range of motion.
Certain shoulder conditions can be difficult to recover from without proper intervention. Depending on the severity of your condition, we may recommend a regenerative treatment to help your body heal a tear or damaged tissue, chiropractic care, or a many other options.
Pinched Nerve in Shoulder
A pinched nerve is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain, but there are several other common causes as well. Typical conditions include rotator cuff injury, labral tear, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), shoulder impingement, arthritis, and bursitis.
Shoulder Joint Pain Treatment
Regenerative medicine offers the most advanced and versatile treatments for shoulder pain. Virtually any painful shoulder condition will respond well to regenerative treatments because they promote the body’s innate ability to heal itself, the way nature designed it to do.
Trigger point injections are an effective treatment for shoulder pain involving muscular pain. Our doctor will identify the muscle’s precise trigger point responsible for the pain and inject a plant-based anti-inflammatory called sarapin directly into the trigger point. The sarapin soothes inflammation and allows the muscle to relax, resulting in rapid pain relief.
Laser therapy is another effective treatment for certain shoulder injuries. The laser directs a specific wavelength of light into the affected area of the shoulder, where it stimulates blood flow to help promote the natural healing process.
Regenerative cell therapy introduces natural growth factors and young stem cells from the umbilical cords of newborns into the affected shoulder tissue. The growth factors and stem cells can help rebuild or replace shoulder tissue including, muscle, cartilage, connective tissue, and bone. When this treatment of natural growth factors, cytokines, and mesenchymal stem cells is injected into your shoulder, the treatment components have an immediate effect on inflammation and then begin to enhance your natural ability to regenerate damaged tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma works in a similarly to regenerative injections. Platelets stimulate the body’s natural healing power as they contain cytokines and growth factors. The injection is prepared by separating the platelets from a small sample of your blood, drawn by the medical technician during your appointment. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into your shoulder. Platelet-rich plasma is often an effective stand-alone treatment, but it is also frequently combined with regenerative cell injections as part of a customized treatment plan.
