Shoulder Conditions

One of the most frustrating things to deal with is nagging pain. This is made even worse if the pain is located in a frequently used and relied-on area.

Whether it be physical therapy, medication, or more advanced treatment, our interventional pain management doctors at the Advanced Relief Institute can help you improve the feeling and use of your shoulder so that you can begin living a pain-free life.

Which Shoulder Conditions Can Interventional Pain Management Treat?

While we tend to think of shoulder pain as limited to a single type of injury, it is important to realize that numerous factors can cause this pain. By understanding the type of pain and its cause, we are better able to help treat the issue so that you can begin the healing process.

Interventional pain management can help relieve discomfort in the shoulder from (but is not limited to):

How Do You Diagnose Shoulder Pain?

While many men and women wait until the pain becomes extreme, it is important to seek help whenever you feel discomfort. Whether your shoulder is only beginning to hurt or it has been causing you chronic pain for a while, schedule a consultation at the Advanced Relief Institute.

At your consultation, one of our doctors will evaluate your condition through various physical exams, which may include X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. From these exams, our team will work to identify the cause of your pain and develop a treatment plan.

What Are My Interventional Pain Management Treatment Options?

It used to be that shoulder pain, whatever its root cause, was treated with either physical therapy or surgery.

However, with the advent of many new interventional pain management treatments, you can get back to feeling like your old self through the use of various therapies.

Whether the pain is chronic or is the result of an injury, you can trust our team at the Advanced Relief Institute to improve your quality of life through minimally invasive therapies.

For many patients, this involves a multidisciplinary approach, which may involve interventional injections, nerve blocks, and nerve stimulation.

Treatments may include (but are not limited to):
  • Intra articular joint injection (using cortisone, PRP, amniotic fluid, stem cells)
  • Rotator cuff injection (using cortisone, PRP, amniotic fluid, stem cells)
  • Peripheral nerve stimulation of the suprascapular nerve
  • Collagen and hyaluronic acid injection of the shoulder joint
  • Ultrasound-guided suprascapular nerve block (SSNB) and tricompartmental injection

It is important to understand that interventional pain management does not always cure pain; however, it can significantly reduce it. During your consultation at the Advanced Relief Institute, our specialists will help develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

What Are My Regenerative Therapy Options?

One of the many treatment options offered at the Advanced Relief Institute is regenerative therapy. With this type of treatment, stem cell therapy, PRP therapy, and amniotic fluid therapy can help to promote repairs within the injured tissue. These outpatient treatments contain high volumes of growth factors that activate healing.

At your consultation, one of our specialists will be happy to explain your options to help you choose the best treatment possible. Some patients even choose to combine regenerative options with interventional pain management, while other patients choose to follow their interventional pain management treatment with regenerative therapy.

Is There a Recovery Period After Interventional Pain Management for Shoulder Pain?

One of the best parts of interventional pain management therapy is that these treatments are often non-surgical, meaning that they require little to no downtime, and there is no need to worry about scarring. Patients may experience bruising, swelling, and sensitivity at the treatment site, but these side effects should dissipate within a few days.
