IMAC Successfully Treats the 5 Major Causes of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be caused by a wide variety of issues. This is because the shoulder is comprised of several key structures, including tendons, cartilage and bone. The shoulder itself is a ball-and-socket joint, which allows a wide range of movement.

The doctors at IMAC Regeneration Centers know people can experience different types of shoulder pain. It may  start out as stiffness, mild pain, and progress to limited range of motion that keeps you doing the things you love, and may start creating inconveniences in your daily life. If you are struggling to brush your hair, get dressed, carry grocery bags, etc. seek help for your shoulder pain from the experts at IMAC Regeneration.

Our talented team will evaluate your shoulder, spine, supporting muscle and bone, and local nerves to truly find the root of your problem. IMAC Regeneration focuses on non-surgical, non-opioid treatments including regenerative medicine techniques like platelet rich plasma, regenerative cellular therapy, hands-on manual physical therapy, and chiropractic to restore function, movement, and get you back to doing the things that make you happy!

Five common causes of such shoulder pain include:

  1. Shoulder Arthritis: This can be caused by everyday wear and tear.
  2. Frozen Shoulder: If you have frozen shoulder, the inner lining of your shoulder has become inflamed and tight, preventing you from having full motion and also causing pain.

  3. Shoulder Dislocation: A dislocation is when the ball slides out of the socket. This is most commonly caused by an athletic injury or fall.
  4.  Shoulder Fractures: A shoulder fracture is another word for a broken shoulder. It can be a break of the ball, socket or scapula.
  5. Rotator Cuff Injuries: The rotator cuff is where the four tendons that encompass the ball of the shoulder meet. Injuries to the rotator cuff can cause shoulder pain.

IMAC Uses PRP for Shoulder Pain

With our help, your body can heal! IMAC doctors use platelet rich plasma to heal micro tears in the structures that support the shoulder joint. Over time, wear and tear causes small tears in the ligaments that provide stability and strength to the joint. You may not be experiencing pain, but may have lax ligaments that are contributing to the arthritis process in the joint.

Who is a candidate for PRP for Shoulder Pain?

An in-depth evaluation will determine the root of your problem, which may benefit from platelet rich plasma (PRP). Our medical team will collaborate to create a personalized treatment plan that may include platelet rich plasma, injections to unbrace tight muscles, skilled physical therapy to add stability then strength, and/or chiropractic care to keep the joint functioning properly.
