Shoulder Pain Treatments

If your shoulder is hurting, chances are that you have a fracture, instability, dislocation, arthritis, tendonitis, or a rotator cuff problem. As the shoulder joint is built to rotate in several directions, it is prone to injuries that can trigger a lot of pain. 

As with all pain in any part of the body, you should start with conservative treatments like RICE and Physical Therapy (written in the Home Remedies section). Following that, if the pain persists, consult a pain doctor who specializes in minimally-invasive procedures. The specific treatment necessary will depend on your specific condition and the root cause of your shoulder pain.

Best Treatments for Shoulder Pain Relief

Besides the below-mentioned treatments, your shoulder pain treatment doctor can use physical therapy and strength workouts along with home remedies like rest and reduction of activities that led to the current pain you are experiencing.

• Cortison injections: If your doctor notices that conservative care treatments are not good at treating your rotator cuff tear, they might administer steroid-based cortisone injections in the shoulder bursa area–just above the tendon. These injections are able to reduce discomfort, break continuous bursal irritation, and get rid of swelling. At the same time, cortisone injections enable people to do strengthening exercises. Normally, victims receive 3 shots per shoulder every six months. These are often combined with physical therapy.

• Platelet Rich Plasma therapy: Simply called a PRP therapy, this method entails a treatment where a patient is injected with their own blood platelets and growth factors. These platelets and growth factors are known to start a repair process where stem cells are incentiated to initiate natural healing.

• NSAIDs: These are anti-inflammatory medicines and their work is to decrease pain, swelling and inflammation. They provide relief by blocking the production of given body chemicals that trigger inflammation. Once you control pain, you can continue functioning normally until your rotator tears heal.

Am I Getting the Right Shoulder Pain Treatment?

If your goal is to find the best shoulder pain doctor near you, then look for a specialized shoulder pain doctor. Too often, shoulder pain sufferers rely on a primary care physician or a chiropractor to treat their pain. In fact, a board-certified pain physician is by far the bestoption for a successful shoulder pain treatment. Only a pain specialist can take a comprehensive approach to your shoulder pain. Our shoulder pain treatment locations.
