Non-Surgical Therapy for Shoulder Conditions
Do you suffer with pain due to any of the following shoulder conditions?
Rotator Cuff Tears
Shoulder Degeneration and Arthritis
Non-Surgical Therapy For Shoulder Injuries
Sports activities that require repeated overhead movements like lifting weights, swimming, throwing or pitching, and swinging of the arms put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even regular, everyday activities can damage the shoulder such as gardening, hanging curtains, or even scrubbing the floors or walls. Often, injury to the shoulder is difficult to heal, and can easily become a recurring problem, even if the immediate pain has subsided. Once ligaments and tissues have been damaged, scar tissue and inflammation can continue to form and build. It is also common for the same injury to reappear, and flare up at later times.
Shoulder injuries can now be helped with non-surgical therapies. Depending on the type of injury, Atlas’ Program uses one or more of the following therapies: platelet rich plasma, advanced laser therapy, and physiotherapy. Our program is no longer exclusive to the elite athlete. It is for anyone suffering from shoulder injuries and are looking for alternatives to prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.
Non-Surgical Therapy for Shoulder Pain due to Rotator Cuff Tears
Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint in which the ball of your upper arm bone fits into the socket of your shoulder blade. The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles that come together as tendons forming a covering around the head of the upper arm bone keeping the arm bone firmly attached to the socket of the shoulder blade (scapula).
Rotator cuff tears usually develop gradually due to stress, overuse and natural wear and tear. People who repeatedly lift their arm overhead are more vulnerable to overuse tears. These include athletes such as tennis players, swimmers, weight lifters and baseball pitchers. Those with arthritis in their shoulders also have a higher propensity for rotator cuff tears. Unfortunately, rotator cuff tears produce a lot of pain and also contribute to instability in the shoulder joint. If it is severe, there may be weakness or an inability to lift the arm.
Atlas Medical Center’s Program uses a combination of non-surgical therapies to aid in the recovery of rotator cuff injuries. Platelet rich plasma therapy, physiotherapy, and advanced laser therapy can all be used to help relieve pain and enhance your body’s own natural healing abilities.
Non-Surgical Therapy For Shoulder Pain due to Arthritis
Degeneration of the shoulder joints is usually a progressive condition that evolves and worsens over time. Shoulder degeneration occurs when the cartilage that protects and surrounds the bones begins to wear down. Without this cushioning between the bones, movement causes friction within the joint. This friction causes pain, inflammation, swelling, and can lead to the development of bone spurs.
Our Program uses one or more of the following therapies: Platelet Rich Plasma, Advanced Non-Surgical Laser Therapy, and Physiotherapy. This combination allows us to help get you out of pain and enhance your body’s own natural healing abilities.
Non-Surgical Therapy for Shoulder Pain due to Bursitis
The larger joints of the body contain small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae that provide cushioning between muscles, bones and tissues, allowing them to move smoothly without friction. Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more of these bursae, and often occurs within the shoulder joint, causing stiffness and making movement painful.
The most effective therapies for bursitis aim to reduce the inflammation that is causing the pain and stiffness. Atlas’ Program uses PRP along with Laser therapy and other physiotherapies to help relieve inflammation. These non-surgical procedures have the potential to help get you of pain, and enhance your body’s own natural healing abilities.
