What causes shoulder pain? Shoulder pain can be caused by a range of chronic conditions or injuries, including bursitis, osteoarthritis, cartilage damage, dislocation, a torn rotator cuff, or torn labrum. Whether your shoulder pain symptoms are mild or debilitating, natural pain relief treatments will help address the root cause of the discomfort and relieve your pain while improving mobility and range of motion.
The treatments we use at our medical clinic are non-surgical and don’t require any potentially harmful medication, so you can experience long-term pain relief and get back to doing all the things you love.
How to Relieve Shoulder Pain
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an effective way to stop shoulder pain because it addresses the root cause of the pain and doesn’t just mask the symptoms. If you rely on pain medication to relieve your shoulder pain, the results will only be temporary and you will start a cycle of having to take medication to stay comfortable.
Shoulder surgery may seem like a complete solution, but it is highly invasive with long recovery, and rehabilitation times and you may still end up being in pain afterward.
All-natural shoulder pain treatments like PRP therapy treat the cause or the reason for your discomfort. It’s important to remember that the pain you feel in your shoulder is just a consequence of the injury or condition that is taking place beneath the surface. If that condition or injury is cleared up, there will be no reason for the pain to be there any longer. Covering up the pain to continue your daily activities means you are likely making the condition worse, which may lead to even higher doses of medication.
Shoulder Joint Pain Treatment
Whether you have a shoulder injury caused by playing sports or improper lifting or a chronic condition that has degraded the joint or tissue, platelet-rich plasma therapy is an effective solution. The process is simple. It begins with a sample of your own blood. This sample is then spun in a centrifuge which separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components.
The concentrated solution of platelets is the injected into your damaged or injured shoulder. The platelets then rush to the site of damage and begin the healing process. Most patients report little to no discomfort and can usually carry on with their day after the treatment. And since it's your own platelets, there is no risk of an adverse reaction or rejection.
