Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can manifest in many forms and can be attributed to a multitude of factors.

The symptoms you experience may range from a mild inconvenience to severe disruptions in your ability to perform daily activities. Common indicators include discomfort while lifting objects, stiffness that limits your range of motion, and pain that worsens at night, potentially interrupting your sleep.

Overuse injuries are prevalent among individuals engaged in repetitive motions, such as athletes or manual laborers. Conditions like bursitis or tendinitis can develop, characterized by inflammation in the shoulder's cushioning pads or tendons. Accidents or falls can result in acute injuries like fractures or dislocations, presenting immediate and intense pain. Additionally, wear and tear over time may lead to degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, contributing to a gradual onset of pain and stiffness.

​​​​​​​Our non-surgical shoudler pain treatment options include:

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections involves concentrating platelets from your own blood and injecting them into the affected area, encouraging natural healing processes. The high concentration of growth factors in platelets can significantly enhance tissue repair, offering a cutting-edge alternative for those seeking relief from chronic shoulder issues.

PRP injections are particularly beneficial for treating tendinopathies, ligament sprains, and muscle injuries, providing a regenerative boost to the healing process. PRP injections work by harnessing the body's inherent ability to heal itself. This method has gained traction due to its minimally invasive nature and the potential for quicker recovery times, making it an attractive option for athletes and active individuals.

Trigger Point Injections

For individuals experiencing myofascial pain syndrome, where pain originates from trigger points in the muscles, Trigger Point Injections (TPI) can offer relief. These injections involve administering medication directly into the trigger points, which are tender areas within the muscle. The medication, often a local anesthetic or corticosteroid, works to alleviate pain by relaxing the muscle and reducing inflammation.

TPI is particularly effective for those whose shoulder pain is linked to muscle tension or knots. The procedure is relatively quick and can be performed in a healthcare provider's office, making it a convenient option for immediate pain relief. The benefits of TPI include not only pain reduction but also improved flexibility and range of motion, which are essential for regaining full functionality of the shoulder.

​​​​​​​Frequently Asked Questions

Which of these injections is right for me?

The choice of treatment depends on various factors. At ReAlignMed, we take many things into account to ensure you receive the best possible hip pain treatment. We consider the underlying cause of the hip pain, the severity of the condition, and your preferences.

For instance, if you have osteoarthritis, our experts may recommend hyaluronic injections. They can provide cushioning and lubrication, which reduces pain and improves mobility.

PRP, hyaluronic acid, and trigger point injections are among the most recommended musculoskeletal injection therapies. Their safety and effectiveness have been extensively studied.

What happens during my hip injection treatment?

During your treatment for hip pain, your doctor will position a state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine over your hip. This incredible equipment is perfectly safe, and it gives the doctor a live video image of the inside of your hip. This means the doctor can see under the skin into your hip to find the troubled areas and guide the gel precisely to cover the sore spots 100% of the time where the gel will provide maximum relief.

The live video image means our injections are ALWAYS accurate. You’ll be able to see that for yourself on the monitor during your treatment.

This is so important as studies* have concluded that without the use of this live video, the gel can be placed incorrectly up to 1/3rd of the time. This is very unfortunate as the gel must be placed directly into the joint to offer any therapeutic benefits.

* Accuracy of needle placement into the intra-articular space of the hip​​​​​​​

Will I feel anything during the injection in my hip?

Many patients wouldn’t believe we had even started the procedure if they hadn’t watched a live video of the whole thing on the monitor. The procedure is so gentle because we use a fine needle and an anesthetic spray to numb your hip. As a result, you’ll feel nothing but relief.

How quickly will hip injections take away my pain?

Hip injections provide pain relief in your hips in three ways, starting immediately.

First, the injection soothes the raw surfaces of your distressed cartilage. The relief is so immediate, you’ll feel better the moment you stand up from the doctor’s chair.

This first wave of relief rolls into the second wave of relief, a robust anti-inflammatory effect. This effect continues to work independently over the next few days, reducing and treating the painful inflammation in your hip.

Your third wave of relief comes as the gel itself begins to form a comfortable pillow inside your hip joint. This pillow delivers long-term relief by reducing the friction that caused your inflammation in the first place. You’ll enjoy anywhere from six months up to a few years of freedom from pain as your hips feel young again with this fresh pillow inside.

How long will my relief from hip pain last?

The hip pain relief lasts between 4 and 6 months. Patients often come back after 6 months for another treatment.

How long your relief lasts depends on your hips and your body, so we can tell you more about your specific situation when you come in for your No Obligation Consultation.

How do you make sure the treatment is as effective as possible?

As a result of their osteoarthritis, our patients often suffer from bursitis as well. Bursitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation and buildup of fluid in the bursa. Not only does this cause the patient more pain, it can dilute the effectiveness of our gel injections too.

If this is happening to you, again, we use our live video X-ray equipment to see right into your hip and drain the bursa to give you more immediate pain relief, treat your bursitis and ensure the gel treatment is most effective!

Are there any side effects from hyaluronic acid injections?

Side effects may include potential short term, minimal pain.

Are hip injections covered by Medicare and insurance?

Hip injections are not covered by insurance.
