Many conditions can cause shoulder pain, including rotator cuff tears, labral tears, frozen shoulder, osteoarthritis, impingement syndrome, dislocation, and joint instability. These conditions can be caused by trauma or injuries from repetitive motion, sports or accidents, or triggered during activities of daily living as simple as gardening, painting a wall, or grabbing something off a top shelf.
When these injuries don’t heal properly, you can develop chronic shoulder pain that doesn’t seem to improve despite traditional methods of treatment like non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), rest, ice, and even cortisone injections.
This is where Prolotherapy and Platelet rich plasma (PRP) are beneficial. Prolotherapy is an injection technique used to stimulate the repair of injured tissue and eliminate chronic pain. By addressing the cause of pain (damaged ligaments and tendons), Prolotherapy allows you to return to your daily life pain free. If you are thinking about surgery as your last viable option, or tired of taking pain medication, consider this non-surgical alternative to joint repair!
