We know that suffering from shoulder pain can be very debilitating, affecting day-to-day at different levels. That is why at Dr. Nash´s Progressive Pain and Rehabilitation, we are committed with providing preventative and regenerative care to those patients suffering from this medical condition by applying diverse treatment options thanks to the experience of experts like Dr. Edward A. Nash, a Houston native with deep roots in the community.
Therefore, without further ado, here are some great therapeutic methods for you to consider if you have shoulder pain:
- Growth factors. It consists of administering a local injection of a prepared solution of growth factors, which are naturally produced proteins that are able to positively influence cellular differentiation and proliferation, enhancing cellular growth.
- Myofascial trigger point injection. Shoulder pain does not happen due to an articular dysfunction, instead, it may have a muscular origin produced by a fall, overuse, or an exaggeration of the joint range of motion, leading to the appearance of tight muscular knots, also known as trigger points. This technique specifically focuses on these by injecting a solution to relieve the pain directly into them.
- 100% pure amniotic fluid. Although not containing living stem cells, this processed solution contains a wide range of natural and regenerative elements, such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, cytokines, etc., that have the ability to help cellular regeneration, improve tissue repair, and reduce inflammation.
- Nerve root block. This is a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure based on the injection of a numbing anesthetic solution into the nerve that is producing the shoulder pain. After identifying the affected nerve through a physical examination or an x-ray, the solution is injected, experiencing pain relief in a matter of minutes or even seconds. This also helps to reduce the inflammation process surrounding the lesion.
- Exosomes. Normally produced by stem cells, these extracellular vesicles serve a function of transportation and communication of genetic data between cells. By securing these processes, they also secure the healing mechanism carried out by the cells, improving, at the same time, the natural ability of the body to repair itself. By injecting these into the affected area, stem cells´ job of regenerating the tissue is guaranteed.
