Pinpointing the root cause is the best way to help your provider effectively treat your condition and ease ongoing discomfort.
To find the cause of shoulder pain, the A+ Athlete Sports Medicine team checks your vital signs and examines your shoulder joint. They also review your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle habits.
You might need blood tests, joint-fluid testing, X-rays, an MRI, an ultrasound, or another imaging procedure to ensure your sports medicine specialist properly treats your condition.
A+ Athlete Sports Medicine offers nonsurgical methods to alleviate shoulder pain. They may suggest home remedies, such as ice or heat packs, resting the injured joint, or wearing a sling. Your provider offers medication prescriptions, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, lubricating gel injections, and inflammation-reducing corticosteroid injections.
They also provide acupuncture, osteopathic manual manipulation, massage, nutrition counseling, injury-specific exercises, and physical therapy.
If you need shoulder surgery because of a severe injury, your A+ Athlete Sports Medicine specialist refers you to a highly trained surgeon.
