Treatment for Shoulder Pain in Marietta
Most people experience some type of shoulder pain at some point in their
lives. However, most cases of shoulder pain tend to resolve themselves
rather quickly. If you are suffering from serious shoulder pain that doesn't
seem to be going away on its own, you should have an experienced orthopaedic
doctor take a look. The team at Non-Surgical Orthopaedics—located
in Marietta—has the experience and knowledge necessary to identify
your source of pain and make life more comfortable. We can help bring
your pain under control so you can regain use of your shoulder.
Types of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is caused by bones, ligaments, or tendons that somehow become
damaged. Generally speaking, shoulder pain falls into one of two categories.
Acute Pain: If you feel pain as a result of a sudden injury, you're likely feeling
acute pain. Acute pain refers to any pain that lasts shorter than six
months. For example, a person who gets into a car accident might suffer
acute pain as he or she recovers. If acute pain goes unaddressed, there's
a chance it could lead to chronic pain.
Chronic Pain: Any type of pain that lasts longer than six months is considered chronic
pain. Osteoarthritis can cause chronic pain—as can tendinitis or
a rotator cuff injury that goes unaddressed. It's never too late to
address shoulder pain. Simply reach out to the team at Non-Surgical Orthopaedics,
and we'll present you with our pain management options.
Alternatives to Surgery
Surgery is far from the only shoulder pain solution—in fact, most
doctors consider it a last resort. Surgery is inherently risky, it can
put your life on hold, and it can cause more pain before alleviating it.
We're proud to offer effective alternatives to surgery.
Platelet Rich Plasma Injections: Using the stem cells from your own blood, our doctors can help strengthen
and repair your injured shoulder. Most patients experience significant
pain reduction and increased range of motion within four to six months.
Prolotherapy Injections: When administering prolotherapy, a doctor injects a sugar solution and
local anesthetic into the injury site. This pain management method is
ideal for slow-healing shoulder injuries. Studies show that prolotherapy
has an amazing success rate.
