The shoulder joint consists of several possible internal pain generators:
If you are suffering from shoulder pain, you may be experiencing either injury, degeneration, inflammation, bursitis, tendonitis or arthritis of any of the above possible pain generators.
Persistent pain in the shoulder that may radiate to the elbow or into the neck are possible symptoms related to injuries within the shoulder. If your pain does not go away with rest, ice, anti-inflammatories, and physical therapy, make an appointment to see the Interventional Pain Doctors team of orthopedic and pain management specialists who can diagnose the source of your pain.
If you have shoulder pain, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to help your body heal itself. PRP can help your shoulder feel better and work better.
The Interventional Pain Doctors team of orthopedic and pain management specialists can diagnose the cause of your shoulder pain during a comprehensive history and physical examination. In addition, we may also request diagnostic tests such as an MRI, X-ray, or ultrasound.
