Shoulder Pain Treatment Without Surgery

The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in your body. But this mobility comes at a price. The body’s constant struggle to keep the joint stable can cause problems when there’s an injury or degenerative disease.
Most patients considering surgery for a shoulder injury, degenerative condition, or osteoarthritis are looking for pain relief. However, research shows that shoulder surgery isn’t all that effective for many patients. 1 While your shoulder MRI could indicate a tear or degeneration, it may not be the cause of pain. 2

Can I Avoid Shoulder Surgery?

In many cases the answer is yes. Rejuvenexx has alternatives to shoulder surgery that help your body use its healing abilities to treat pain and promote a more speedy recovery.

Rejuvenexx procedures are non-surgical alternatives that use precise image-guided injections of your body’s own natural healing agents to treat shoulder injuries. These procedures utilize either platelet-rich plasma or your own bone marrow concentrate (contains stem cells) to help you avoid shoulder surgery. Once you’ve been evaluated, your physician will customize a treatment plan based on your specific needs.
