Prolotherapy for Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is the most commonly used joint in the body for daily activities. However, it is prone to instability, soft tissue impingement, etc. and this can lead to severe pain and discomfort. But many people ignore shoulder pain and leave it undiagnosed. Many people who experience shoulder pain use medications, physical therapy, etc. to get rid of the pain. But if the shoulder pain is caused by some underlying issue such as shoulder instability, those treatments do not help. The underlying cause needs to be treated to get rid of the pain.

Prolotherapy is one of the effective solutions to treat acute and chronic shoulder pain without the need to undergo surgery. Prolotherapy can treat shoulder pain caused by various conditions.

What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is also known as regenerative injection or proliferation therapy. It involves injecting an irritant solution such as dextrose into the sore joint. This will stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and release immune cells at the injected site. Due to this, the damaged soft tissue in the muscle gets repaired and this relieves the pain.

If you want to have a prolotherapy injection, you should ensure to visit an experienced and reputed doctor.

How Does Prolotherapy Work for Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain is mainly caused by the joint stability. To treat this pain, it is essential to strengthen the capsular and ligamentous structures. The glenoid labrum is the capsular structure for shoulder stability. This allows to hold the humerus bone to the scapula’s glenoid cavity.

Prolotherapy can help to treat this shoulder pain by promoting the body’s natural healing process. During prolotherapy, an irritant solution is injected into the shoulder joint around the tendons and ligaments. The doctor may use ultrasound image guidance during the procedure. Once the irritant solution is injected, the body’s healing system gets stimulated and it releases immune cells. This will help reduce inflammation and promote the growth of new tissue. This will further reduce your pain, and improve range of motion. It also helps to restore the normal functioning of the shoulder joint.

Patients who had prolotherapy for shoulder pain have reported a reduction in their pain without undergoing any surgery.
