Rotator Cuff Pain

If you suffer from pain and stiffness in your back or neck, or if you find it difficult to stand up straight or get out of a chair, it’s likely that you are dealing with some form of spinal facet joint pain. To better understand, the facet joints are the connective points between each bone of the spine. They provide much needed limitations to an individual’s movement. For instance, these joints allow the spine to bend and twist, yet not far enough to cause injury. In order to enable free-flowing movements, each facet joint relies on cartilage and synovial (lubricating) joint fluid.

When arthritis, degenerative disease or an injury occurs, inflammation often builds up within the joint, causing pain. This can occur at any point along the spine, and specific symptoms depend on where the affected joint is located. To obtain an accurate diagnosis, an individual’s joint is sometimes injected with an anesthetic or anti-inflammatory. If immediate relief is felt, the condition is called facet joint syndrome.

When it comes to facet joint pain, individuals may experience acute episodes followed by periods of minimal pain or no pain at all. Thus, for the most effective long-term relief, it’s important to perform treatment that will alleviate pain while providing some rehabilitation. This is why physical therapy and lifestyle conditioning is often coupled with steroid injections, cryotherapy and NSAIDS. Posture training is also helpful in a large number of cases, specifically in those where degenerative changes have taken place.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

This place is amazing. I took my aunt to Dr. Dehdari since she was in so much pain to her left knee due to Arthritis Dr. Dehdari explained to us about PRP and after the PRP procedure she has no more pain. When we went there she was using a cane but right now she doesn't use it at all. PRP works miracle.

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Quite simple experience. Showed up to appointment, I was taken right away to room for PRP injection. Doctor was friendly and willing to try to help me, while many other doctors just told me they did not know what I had and told me they couldn't help my pain and sent me away. Nurse was quite nice as well. Will return for second set of injections for more pain reduction.
