Is a sore shoulder keeping you from enjoying the things you like to do? Whether you have been in a car accident, were injured in the workplace, have arthritis, or aren’t even sure why your shoulder hurts, we can help. Our doctors will examine your shoulder, offer or confirm a diagnosis, and recommend a treatment plan to get you back into the swing of things.
Treatment for Shoulder Injuries
Before our doctors can recommend the most appropriate form of treatment, a thorough exam must take place to diagnose or verify the cause of your shoulder pain. Our doctors are thorough and will test for strength and range of movement and check for any apparent abnormalities, such as inflammation, swelling, or malformation. Depending on your condition, the doctor may recommend one or more of our clinic's treatment options.
Some of the more frequent shoulder injuries we successfully treat include:
- Tendon tears or tendonitis
- Adhesive capsulitis or “frozen shoulder”
- Rotator cuff injury
- Labral tear
- Shoulder impingement
- Dislocated shoulder
- Fractured collarbone
- Shoulder instability
Our all-natural pain relief treatments are effective for all of these conditions and more.
Effective, Non-Surgical Treatments for Shoulder Pain
The concentrated growth factors and cytokines found in platelets enhance the body’s innate ability to repair damaged tissue. This makes platelet-rich plasma highly adept at relieving shoulder pain. Platelet-rich plasma is prepared from a sample of the patient’s blood. We further concentrate the platelets so that they supply growth factors to the painful muscle, bone, or other tissues in need of a healing boost when they are injected into the damaged shoulder tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma injections are highly effective for many shoulder injuries. One of the reasons is that the injection is made from the patient’s own blood, rather than donor tissue. We prepare the injection here in our clinic.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections treat the muscles of the shoulder. The doctor administers a shot of sarapin (a natural, plant-based anti-inflammatory) directly into the muscle at the precise spot of a trigger point or muscle knot that’s causing your shoulder pain. Sarapin attracts blood flow and fluids to the site, relaxing the muscle and easing your shoulder's pain.
In many cases, chiropractic adjustments are all that’s needed to address a shoulder problem. The doctor’s gentle technique corrects spinal misalignment, which frequently affects the shoulder. A chiropractic adjustment can have far-reaching effects, restoring balance to the whole body.
Don’t let shoulder problems interfere with your life. Our all-natural pain relief therapies will help you get back to doing all the things you love to do, pain-free!
