A Multi-Tier Approach to Shoulder Pain

Written By OptiLux Wellness Center on October 9, 2019

Man with shoulder pain Shoulder pain treatment should be equal parts restorative, long-lasting, and sustainable. In other words, the treatment for chronic pain must not only quickly relieve discomfort, but it should provide lasting relief without reliance on risky painkillers or unnatural quick fixes. 

At our New Kensington office, we also believe in lifelong learning – and we’re constantly striving to adapt to the latest techniques and treatment options. For our shoulder pain patients, treatments may include cutting-edge stem cell technologies known to promote regeneration on the molecular level. 

What’s more, we offer a variety of services to treat pain holistically, including; traditional chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, and other targeted services. 

PRP Treatments for Pain

One shoulder pain treatment Optilux Wellness routinely offers to patients is known as Platelet Rich Plasma, or “PRP” therapy. While the science behind this treatment is revolutionary, the molecular biology is surprisingly straightforward and all-natural. 

For shoulder pain patients, we begin this treatment with a safe and minimally-invasive blood draw. Then, the patient’s own blood is spun in a specialized centrifuge designed to separate valuable plasma from other blood products. This plasma contains a concentration of cells known as platelets, which are re-injected into the shoulder pain patient

How PRP Treatments Work

Following the injection of platelet-rich plasma, the stem cells begin to work quickly – promoting regeneration of compromised muscle tissue. Over time, these cells divide and grow, leaving shoulder pain patients with a feeling of rejuvenation and increased range of motion. Of course, PRP treatments take time to work, and shoulder pain treatments can last several weeks or longer. 

An Eye on the Future

At Optilux Wellness, we incorporate not only PRP treatments derived from a patient’s own blood plasma, but another cutting edge treatment utilizing irreplaceable umbilical cord cells known as Mesenchymal stem cell therapy. Astoundingly, these specialized umbilical cord stem cells have the ability to transform into a wide array of particular cells, providing additional relief options from painful shoulder discomfort.
