Shoulder Pain - Overview

Shoulders are the most movable human body joints. The wide motion range is provided by a group of 4 muscles and tendons known as the rotator cuff. However, you may experience shoulder pain if the bone around the rotator cuff changes swells, or is damaged. Hence, you may feel shoulder pain when raising your arm above the head or moving it back or forward.

According to a study published in PubMed Central, shoulder pain is a disabling and common joint complaint. It showed that the incidence of shoulder pain in primary care annually is around 14.7/1000 patients with a 70 percent lifetime prevalence. Recovery in patients is slow than recurrence, while forty to fifty patients report persistent pain.

Shoulder pain may occur due to multiple reasons, diseases, or conditions. However, the most common one is shoulder degeneration.

Shoulder Degeneration

Shoulder degeneration is osteoarthritis of the shoulder. The risk of shoulder degeneration increases with age, especially in people above 50. However, young people are also at risk of this condition due to shoulder injuries such as bone fractures and dislocated shoulders.

There are two joints in the shoulder:

  • The Glenohumeral joint- where the humerus connects with the scapula or shoulder blade.
  • The Acromioclavicular joint- where the shoulder blade’s tip meets the clavicle or collarbone

However, shoulder degeneration is more common in the Acromioclavicular joint. As osteoarthritis of the shoulder develops, the protective cartilage located at the bones end beings to wear away. The function of the cartilage is to facilitate smooth shoulder movement and actions.

Therefore, without this protective lining of the cartilage, the joints start to rub, causing bone-to-bone friction, which is quite painful. Severe shoulder pain can limit or inhibit movements and lower the quality of your life. Furthermore, it can also develop bone spurs.  

These develop when the bone attempts to self-heal. However, if the cartilage wears away, it can’t repair or regrow itself. Hence, the bone spurs cause more friction, weakness, inflammation, and loss of shoulder functionality and motion.

Symptoms of shoulder degeneration may include:

  • Pain when engaging in shoulder movement
  • Pain after shoulder movement
  • Shoulder pain when sleeping
  • Limited arm motion
  • Clicking or crackling noise

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, book an appointment with us, as you could be dealing with shoulder degeneration. Our board-certified physician will evaluate your condition carefully and use multiple techniques for proper diagnosis. We will take your medical history.

Perform a physical examination to determine tenderness, motion loss, and severity of shoulder pain and look for symptoms in the surrounding tissues. This exam will help us determine if the muscle around the shoulder joint shows signs of weakness or atrophy due to lack of usage.

Based on the diagnosis, we’ll determine the best treatment plan for you to minimize pain so that you can enjoy quality living. We are currently taking appointments for our shoulder pain. Book an appointment with us today.

Regenerative Medicine for Shoulder Bursitis

The larger joints of the body contain small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae that provide cushioning between muscles, bones, and tissues, allowing them to move smoothly without friction. Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more of these bursae, and often occurs within the shoulder joint, causing stiffness and making movement painful.

The best treatments for bursitis aim to reduce the inflammation that is causing the pain and stiffness. Regenerative Cell Therapy is a revolutionary treatment protocol that takes concentrated amounts of healing cells and uses them directly in the area of inflammation and damage. This is a non-surgical procedure that can be done in-office, and quickly and naturally alleviates shoulder pain.

Regenerative Medicine for Shoulder Injuries

Sports activities that require repeating overhead movements like lifting weights, swimming, throwing or pitching, and swinging of the arms put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even regular, everyday activities can damage the shoulder such as gardening, hanging curtains, or even scrubbing the floors or walls. Often, injury to the shoulder is difficult to heal, and can easily become a recurring problem, even if the immediate pain has subsided. Once ligaments and tissues have been damaged, scar tissue and inflammation can continue to form and build. It is also common for the same injury to reappear, and flare up at later times.

Sports or other injuries to the shoulder can now be treated with non-invasive, regenerative medicine procedures. like Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.

Regenerative Cell Therapy

Regenerative cell therapy is one of the newest and most cutting-edge therapies for chronic joint pain.

Regenerative cell therapy consists of an injection directly into the painful area. The therapy has the potential to actually alter the course of the condition and not simply mask the pain. This therapy has significant potential for those with shoulder pain and could repair structural problems while treating shoulder pain and inflammation simultaneously.
