Shoulder Pain Relief
Your shoulder is made up of joints that combine with tendons and muscles to allow you to use your arm. From reaching for an item on your top shelf to playing baseball with your kids, you use your shoulder for a variety of movements.
Severe shoulder pain can result in discomfort that affects your posture and the way you complete simple daily activities. Your pain may stem from direct impact or trauma to the shoulders. You may also develop a sore shoulder from overuse, wear and tear, or degeneration of ligaments and tendons. Other common pain causes are:
- Rotator cuff and shoulder muscles weakness
- Shoulder blade muscle weakness
- Stiff shoulder joints
- Poor posture
- Slips and falls
- Previous shoulder surgery
Regenerative medicine treatments allow you to lessen pain and regain mobility quickly and effectively without invasive surgery. Our unique, cutting-edge treatments accelerate your body's natural healing and regenerative properties to treat the root cause of your pain and inflammation while restoring health to your joints. Our procedures often successfully eliminate the need for addictive pain medications that only mask the symptoms of the problem. We offer the following treatments for your shoulder arm pain:
Pinched Nerve in Shoulder
A pinched nerve in the shoulder blade is a painful condition that develops when the tissue surrounding the shoulder blade becomes compressed. That causes intense pressure, resulting in shoulder problems such as pain when lifting the arm or shoulder joint pain. Repetitive shoulder movements, overexertion of your arms, obesity, pregnancy, and medical conditions such as arthritis are just a few factors that may cause you to develop a pinched nerve in the shoulder blade.
Common symptoms of a pinched nerve include:
- A painful burning sensation in the shoulder that radiates down the arm
- Weakness in the shoulder and arm muscles
- Numbness and tingling in the shoulder joint that presents as pins and needles feeling
Shoulder Joint Pain Treatment
You may have been told that surgery or pain medication is your only options to address your injured shoulder. Before making your final decision, consider that you could avoid surgical procedures with a more comprehensive approach to your pain relief.
Regenerative Cell Treatment
Our regenerative treatments for shoulder injuries is a same-day outpatient procedure conducted in our medical clinic. We use mesenchymal stem cells derived from Wharton's jelly, donated to regulated tissue banks. Donors are thoroughly screened to ensure your safety. These very young stem cells can transform rapidly into other type cells needed to repair damaged joints in the shoulder and are the body’s natural healers.
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that stimulate your cells, causing them to heal the damaged areas of the shoulder quicker. Our technique involves injecting the highly concentrated PRP directly into the damaged area of the shoulder. Once inserted, the growth factors initiate the process of restoring your joints and muscles in the shoulder.
