Joint Pain

Joint pain can be felt in multiple parts of the body. Age, weight, previous injuries, overuse, and other medical conditions can all be factors of joint pain.

Initial consult includes:

  • Consultation
  • Exam
  • X-rays (If needed)
  • One Treatment Session

Like many others with shoulder pain, Kathleen used to deal with her shoulder pain by getting cortisone injections every time the previous one would wear off. Kathleen had her first PRP treatment just three months ago and is still seeing results!

Her shoulder pain has improved and she can sleep without pain again. Most importantly, she has returned back to her normal life and do most activities she used to be able to do before dealing with shoulder pain!

Joint Pain

Joint discomfort is common and usually felt in the hands, feet, hips, knees, or spine. Pain may be constant or it can come and go. Sometimes the joint can feel stiff, achy, or sore. Some patients complain of a burning, throbbing, or “grating” sensation. In addition, the joint may feel stiff in the morning but loosen up and feel better with movement and activity. However, too much activity could make the pain worse.

Joint pain may affect the function of the joint, and can limit a person’s ability to do basic tasks. Severe joint pain can affect the quality of life. Treatment should focus not only on pain but also on the affected activities and functions.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy

 Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is made from your own blood, which is then injected into your painful joint. Your joint contains a large number of platelets and proteins that have anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects.


Rotator Cuff Tear

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. It is capable of a wide range of motion which also makes it prone to injury. The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint surrounded by a group of four muscles. This structure is critical for stabilizing the upper arm and shoulder and is referred to as the rotator cuff. 

Tears of the rotator cuff are a common cause of shoulder pain. Damage to the rotator cuff is often a result of trauma to the shoulder, such as with a sports injury or vehicle accident, or caused by wear and tear that occurs over time.

A rotator cuff tear can range in severity. The most common indication of a torn rotator cuff is pain or weakness felt in the shoulder, especially when lifting or rotating your arm.
