The shoulder is a combination of several joints that work synchronously with tendons and muscles to allow arm movements. The shoulder joints offer more mobility than all other joints in the body, leading to an increased risk of shoulder joint injuries and shoulder pain. Marin Regenerative Health diagnoses and treats the root cause of shoulder pain in Marin County using cutting-edge regenerative treatments.
No Surgeries, No Drugs
Marin Regenerative Health is firmly opposed to prescribing medications and surgical procedures for shoulder pain. Thanks to recent advancements in medical science, we can now harness your body’s innate regenerative properties to heal injuries and disorders. Our medical providers study, investigate, and treat the root cause of shoulder pain, paving the way to a pain-free life where you don’t have to rely on medications to get through the day.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
Rotator Cuff Injury
A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. These muscles and tendons help to lift the arm. A rotator cuff injury can occur when these muscles and tendons are strained or torn. This type of injury is often seen in athletes who participate in throwing sports.
Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa. The bursa is a small sac of fluid that cushions the joint. Bursitis can be caused by overuse, infection, or arthritis. It is often seen in people who repeat the same motion over and over, such as tennis players or factory workers.
A frozen shoulder is a condition in which the shoulder joint becomes stiff and painful. It is often seen in people who have had an injury to the shoulder or who have a medical condition that affects the shoulder and causes shoulder pain in Marin County, such as arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that affects the joints. It is caused by the breakdown of cartilage, which is the tissue that protects the joint. Osteoarthritis can occur in any joint in the body, but it is most common in the shoulders, knees, hips, and hands.
Treatments for Shoulder Pain
Shockwave therapy is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive treatment for conditions like ED and musculoskeletal issues. Using pain-free high-energy sound waves, it accelerates tissue healing through natural cellular regeneration. This drug-free alternative to traditional treatments is safe, effective and provides a natural solution for medical conditions. Don’t let the name intimidate you, shockwave therapy is a hassle-free, innovative solution.
PRP is derived from your own blood and contains a high concentration of platelets, which are cells that help with tissue regeneration. PRP injections can reduce inflammation and promote the healing of the tendons and ligaments in the shoulder. PRP is particularly effective as a treatment for rotator cuff tendinopathy.
Treatment With Growth Factors
Treatment with growth factors involves using growth factors, which are cells with the ability to develop into other types of cells, to help repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Growth factors are usually drawn from the bone marrow and injected into the damaged tissues. They can facilitate natural healing to improve shoulder pain and function.
Chiropractic care focuses on correcting alignment problems in the spine and other joints in the body. This can relieve pain and improve function in the shoulder and other joints. Chiropractic care is particularly effective in treating issues related to joint dislocation and shoulder pain in Marin County.
Orthobiologics are a type of treatment that involves using natural substances to promote healing, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), growth factors, and other growth factors. Orthobiologics channels your body’s innate regenerative properties to heal shoulder injuries, rotator cuff injuries, and tendinopathy.
