Shoulder Pain – Regenerative Medicine

How common is shoulder pain?
Shoulder pain can be relatively common in a lot of people. Whether it’s caused from degenerative changes or an injury.

What causes shoulder pain?

There are 3 top reasons to have shoulder pain:

  • Osteoarthritis – Is one of the most common types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is diagnosed when cartilage surrounding the joints begin to show degenerative changes and break down. Joints at this point feel stiff and begin to weaken.
  • Rotator Cuff Damage – There are different groups of muscles and tendons that connect the arm to the shoulder, they are called the rotator cuff. The muscles are more prone to become inflamed and tend to bruise very easily. Damage to the rotator cuff comes mainly from wear and tear over the years. This can be easily diagnosed through a MRI. If left untreated it can cause constant pain.
  • Bursitis – Bursitis is inflammation (swelling) around the Bursa. The Bursa is tissue-tiny sacs of fluid that help in cushioning the bone along with the muscles and tendons. These tiny sacs help in diminishing irritation and absorb shock when the joints maneuver. Bursitis is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain. It is caused from doing constant overhead motions and in addition aggravates the bursa causing inflammation.

What are the treatment options?
Conservative – Conservative methods to treating shoulder pain is non-surgical types of treatments. Such as Physical therapy, injections and medications.

Interventional – Interventional pain management is a different approach that uses more of minimally invasive methods. Such as facet joint injections and nerve blocks.
