PRP for Shoulder Pain Treatment?
Herbal Medicine and Cupping Therapy Clinic, F 36, DB Gupta Market, Karol bagh, New Delhi, M 8287833547
Shoulder pain is common in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). It is most often caused by overuse injuries to the muscles and tendons that can occur during wheelchair propulsion, transfers, and other activities of daily living. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment can help people suffering from shoulder pain and provide an alternative to shoulder replacement surgery. Many shoulder injuries are sports-related including dislocations, fractures and rotator cuff damage.
Is PRP a realistic choice?
For many people, PRP is a good and realistic choice for their shoulder pain and injury. How do you know if you are one of these people? An examination by a doctor well experienced in treating such injuries with regenerative therapies is a good place to start.
PRP therapy supports your body’s self-healing processes by using your own cells. Blood is mostly liquid (called plasma) but also contains solid component including red cells, white cells and platelets. The platelets are important for clotting blood but they also contain proteins called growth factors which are important in the healing of injuries.
With a higher concentration of growth factors than typically found in blood, PRP treatment support the restoration of injured tissue and inhibit painful inflammatory processes.
This treatment offers:
- Pain relief
- Reduce swelling
- Increase joint function
- Improve condition of joint cartilage
How often PRP therapy works
PRP therapy currently has a success rate between 80 and 90 percent. Patients typically only require between 2 and 5 treatments, with most patients requiring 2-3 treatments for successful recovery.
Other benefits of PRP therapy
Patients who undergo PRP therapy do not have to worry about the risks or strain associated with shoulder surgery.
At Herbal medicine and cupping therapy clinic, Karol bagh New Delhi, we conduct a thorough physical evaluation to determine the nature and extent of an injury. When pain persists past conventional treatments – and provided the patient is otherwise in good health – we use regenerative natural procedures to naturally repair damage and eliminate related pain. All treatments are natural and non-surgical.
PRP treatment, which may promote healing of the injured tendon, combined with a graduated exercise program, is a potential option for these individuals suffering from shoulder pain or injury or tear.
Additionally, we use innovative manual therapies to realign the shoulder joint to help ensure proper shoulder motion, and also pay careful attention to ligament and joint capsule tissue that is often injured many times.
