Traditional medical treatment of shoulder problems usually consist of anti-inflammatories, steroids and physical therapy. If these measures fail, surgery is often the next step. Unfortunately, none of these measures help the body heal or regenerate and often lead to scar tissue, further surgery and ultimately a less functional joint. At Solutions, we have excellent results with shoulder pain and injuries using regenerative medicine treatments, chiropractic and focused rehabilitation. For acute injuries to the shoulder, human tissue cellular allograft injections help greatly by rapidly reducing inflammation. For rotator cuff muscular or ligament tears, PRP is also a great addition to promote healing of the damaged tissues.
A trigger point is defined as a hyperirritable spot within the musculature, usually found in the back muscles. They are a palpable nodule in the taut bands of the skeletal muscles' fascia. When pressed, the nodules are often tender and can also cause referred pain (pain in a different location). These problems occur because of imbalances in the body’s structure or muscular system that occur from either pinched nerves in the spine and/or repetitive motions. Trigger points that become chronic (longstanding) develop adhesions and scar tissue that can compound spinal problems and contribute to further imbalances and pain syndromes.
When you get a misalignment in one of your joints, one of the body’s first responses is inflammation. The initial inflammation following injury is good – the swelling reduces range of motion so you don’t continue to injure and it also activates the immune system for healing to begin. Whether it’s just an alignment issue, sprain/strain or torn ligament, there is inflammation and pain, so non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are one of the most common treatments. While these drugs are effective and extremely easy to get, they tend to be used frequently (in many cases, constantly) and this takes a toll on the body. NSAIDs may reduce pain and inflammation, they do nothing for actual repair or realignment of the joint. When the pain is less, this allows you to continue to use the injured joint, possibly causing further damage.
