Read on to learn how Buchanan Health Center in Leesburg, FL, can help you find relief.
Muscle manipulation is a great way to start to recover from shoulder pain. This type of treatment is what many people think of when they hear the term classical chiropractic care. With muscle manipulation, the chiropractor works to move muscles that have moved out of position back to their proper healthy places. By doing this, the muscles will move so that there is significantly less pressure on the nerves that are sending pain signals to the brain.
Muscle manipulation will be different from patient to patient, but it almost always takes several sessions before results last more than a few hours. Muscle manipulation is a therapy that can complement traditional medicine, and it can be performed in conjunction with other types of physical therapy.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are a relatively new type of therapy for shoulder pain. A single PRP injection has been shown to help with muscle healing, and eventually alleviate pain. PRP injections are usually used over the course of a few sessions, though many patients claim they experience pain relief immediately after that first session.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy works by using the platelets and growth factors from a patient's blood to encourage the production of stem cells within the tissues or the affected area. Stem cells are special types of cells that have the potential to grow into any type of tissue in the human body. In PRP therapy, it is believed that these stem cells work to repair shoulder injuries or inflammation. Through the course of several treatments, the stem cells can repair damaged tissue and lead to healing and pain relief.
