Repair Injured or Deteriorated Shoulders at Better Life Clinics
Need PRP Therapy for Shoulders? Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a remarkable treatment for shoulder injuries or other orthopedic issues involving the shoulder.
Shoulders can take a lot of abuse, especially by active people! Sports injuries, wear and tear, and age all can take their toll on the joints and tendons of the shoulder. Unfortunately, these issues have only limited ability to heal on their own.
Conventional treatments are usually steroid shots, and surgery. Steroids have been found to destroy the cartilage and the ‘life’ of joints. So having the pain come back is usually inevitable, especially for osteoarthritis (OA).
We specialize in regenerative treatments such as PRP that provide a better quality of life for patients with shoulder pain or injury without drugs or surgery.
Platelet-rich plasma uses the growth and healing factors in your own blood to stimulate healing, return range of motion, and reduce the root cause of your knee pain.
