Shoulder pain can result from injury or the tear and wear that come with age and usage. It is a pain that causes progressively intense discomfort that makes it hard for you to lead a normal life.
Shoulder impingement syndrome is a common enough cause of shoulder pain. This syndrome results from constantly rubbing your rotator cuff against the humerus and top outer edge of your shoulder. The rotator cuff is the compilation of tendons and muscles that surround your shoulder joint.
Shoulder impingement syndrome has been attributed to repetitive and aggressive use of the arm or due to age. Sports like baseball, cricket, or swimming, where the arm is regularly thrown above the head, have been singled out as culprits.
The result is a dull pain that doesn’t go away and intensifies when the arm is used. For the best pain therapy in Orlando, check out Innovative Pain Solutions.
Pain Therapy Orlando
Your doctor diagnoses your problem by taking your pain history and palpating around the shoulder to feel tenderness. He may require that imaging tests are done. The results of that inform his treatment plan.
He may prescribe NSAIDs or corticosteroids for acute pain that can go away, which you take orally or are injected into your shoulder. For non-healing pain, however, he may recommend physical therapy.
Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP Therapy Orlando)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection is an innovative pain therapy gaining popularity amongst sportspeople. This regenerative medicine therapy uses your body’s ability to heal itself to heal your shoulder pain. It is a popular therapy effective against balding as well.
A shot of PRP is prepared by taking a quantity of your blood and running it through a centrifuge. This separates the plasma rich with platelets from the other blood components. Plasma is the protein-laden part of your blood, while platelets are its clogging factor with healing capabilities.
The concentrated plasma is injected into the injured tissue at several points. The PRP then breaks down and releases a regenerative factor that stimulates the production of the cells that help your body heal. Ultrasound technology is used to make the delivery of the plasma more precise. PRP’s effectiveness is such that it is a realistic alternative to surgery.
Innovative Pain Solutions provides the best PRP Orlando. The therapy consists of a single shot every month for up to three months. You can expect to see changes about a month after the treatment starts.
The effects of PRP last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. This period depends on how long the therapy lasted.
Likely side effects from using this therapy include soreness and ache in the area of application. You may develop an infection on the site of injections. You may likely have an allergic reaction. Blood clots and skin discolorations are also to be expected.
It would be better if you inform your doctor of any of these signs, and he will know what to do.
