Causes of shoulder pain?
Pain in the shoulder can have a variety of causes and some of the most common causes include:
- Injury to your shoulder
- Rotator cuff tear
- Overuse of the shoulder joint
- Shoulder arthritis
- Frozen shoulder
- Surgical history of the shoulder
The severity of shoulder pain can vary from acute to chronic, episodic to constant, and mild to severe. Painful shoulders are often accompanied by restricted mobility, which can inhibit a person’s ability to wash their hair, drive, and perform other simple tasks. Even sleeping becomes difficult when a person has certain shoulder conditions.
Shoulder pain treatment
Shoulder pain can be treated in a number of ways. The best treatment option for your shoulder problem depends on various factors like the nature & severity of the symptoms, the underlying cause, the treatment you prefer, and other health factors.
The shoulder is commonly treated through injection therapy or surgery in many patients. However, some patients might prefer more natural and less invasive alternative treatment options. For those patients, PRP injection therapy may be a suitable treatment option.
How does PRP alleviate shoulder pain?
PRP means platelet-rich plasma, a natural component that is present in your blood. PRP is rich in concentrated growth factors in addition to its regenerative properties, making it an excellent treatment of choice for shoulder pain & its associated symptoms along with other joint injuries.
A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm as part of PRP therapy for the shoulder. A centrifuge is then used to spin the blood so that it can quickly separate the PRP component from other blood components. Once PRP solution is prepared, it is then injected into the damaged area of your shoulder joint with a syringe. Anaesthesia may be given during the procedure.
Consequently, the PRP injected promotes the body’s natural healing abilities, which eventually helps to decrease inflammation, restores the damaged tissues and thereby relieves joint pain. As a matter of fact, PRP therapy is commonly used as a non-surgical treatment option for helping sports personalities to avoid surgery or to recover more quickly from surgery.
In addition to shoulder pain, PRP therapy can also be used to treat a variety of conditions, which include:
- Injuries to the muscles
- Torn tendons
- Ligament tears
- Muscle strains or sprains
- Joint sprains
- Knee joints pain
- Arthritic pain
- Boosts delayed healing following surgery
- Inflammation of the joints
