Shoulder Arthritis Treatment
Arthritis in the shoulder will usually require physiotherapy to loosen up the joint and improve rotation. However, with platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment, the damage to the joint and surrounding muscles is treated with a precision guided injection carried out by Dr. Dehdari of the Advanced Healing Institute.
This treatment option delivers platelet rich plasma into the affected area, which supports the body’s natural repair mechanisms. Treatment does not involve spending hours at a physiotherapy clinic or invasive surgery. Dr. Dehdari uses the patient’s own blood as a source of PRP, which can then be injected into the areas around the shoulder that are painful or swollen.
What are the Symptoms and Causes of Shoulder Osteoarthritis?
The symptoms of shoulder arthritis include pain and swelling around the shoulder joint. Wear and tear are observed in x-rays of the shoulder when osteoarthritis is present. In severe cases, the shoulder will effectively dislocate due to swelling. The condition is caused by damage to the bones and cartilage in the shoulder, either through normal wear and tear or as a result of trauma.
Secondary symptoms of osteoarthritis of the shoulder may manifest as pain in the neck, collar bone or shoulder blades. Many sufferers report feeling tightness or a burning sensation between the shoulder blades that may radiate into the neck.
