Shoulder Pain Relief
In the past, some shoulder injuries required surgery while others healed on their own. Although it is true that the shoulder is an extremely complex joint, our doctors and staff at MedWell offer numerous non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments for shoulder pain relief. Accurate diagnostic testing and a thorough examination are used with advanced imaging to determine the origin and reasons for your shoulder pain. Three bones (the humerus, scapula and clavicle) are connected by cartilage, ligaments, tendons and muscles to create a ball and socket joint. Since your shoulder joint is capable of extraordinary motion, it can cause impingement pain and loss of stability. Ultrasound-guided platelet rich plasma injections, physical therapy, orthopedic exercises and stem cell therapy offer exciting new treatment options for shoulder pain relief.

The shoulder is a ball-and-blade joint with a shallow socket, so any impingement or shoulder pain can limit your ability to move your arm and may prevent you from performing your daily tasks. The most commonly affected soft tissues in the shoulder are the tendons that form the rotator cuff and biceps tendon. Due to the capsular nature of the joint, it is important to seek medical attention for injuries that do not heal quickly or continue to reoccur. Physical therapy, platelet rich plasma injections and stem cell therapy can be useful in the proper healing and release of scar tissue to restore mobility and range of motion when other treatment options have failed. After all, any shoulder pain can greatly hinder your ability to move freely and without discomfort.
