Shoulder pain isn’t just a common problem, it’s also a significant health challenge because the problem recurs in 25% of patients. Additionally, 40%-50% of patients still have ongoing shoulder pain for at least a year after conventional medical treatment.

Your shoulder joint has a greater range of motion than other joints in your body, yet all the movement is supported by only four muscles, called the rotator cuff. That’s why rotator cuff injuries are one of the most common causes of shoulder pain.
The conditions that frequently result in acute or chronic shoulder pain include:
Anyone can end up with shoulder pain, but your chances increase if you engage in sports or have a job that requires overhead activities. Pitchers, weightlifters, and painters are just three examples of people who are susceptible to shoulder pain.
Problems in your shoulder cause symptoms in addition to pain, such as:
If your shoulder pain doesn’t improve with conventional medical care, it’s time to consider regenerative medicine.
If your shoulder pain does not improve, it's time to consider regenerative medicine. Many medical research studies show that people with rotator cuff injuries and shoulder arthritis significantly improve with regenerative medicine treatment. Their shoulder pain diminishes and optimal shoulder function is restored.
One of the most important steps you can take is to seek immediate treatment for shoulder pain. If you keep using your shoulder, the damaged tissues get worse and you can end up with chronic joint instability.
Treatment at the Center for Pain Management and Rehab quickly relieves your pain by accelerating healing. Your treatment plan may include:
Your provider may recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP), platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), stem cells, or prolotherapy for your shoulder pain. These therapies trigger the natural healing response, and regenerate the new tissues needed to heal your shoulder pain.
Interventional therapies focus on relieving the pain by using minimally invasive pain-relief technicques. Trigger point injections quickly relax knotted muscles. If you need relief from severe pain, other interventional procedures block nerves that transmit pain signals to your brain.
We'll coach you in physical rehab techniques to further relieve your shoulder and prevent chronic shoulder instability by rebuilding strength and restoring movement.
