prolotherapy for shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand

PRP Treatments for Conditions that result in Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Pain | Scottsdale and Phoenix

Our joint pain doctors apply Prolotherapy, Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy, which can often help heal & restore damaged joints.

Shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand pain — Overuse, injuries, seemingly benign sports like golf and tennis, and the cumulative effects of aging can cause pain, stiffness and swelling, and severely limit the range of motion, muscle strength and stability of your shoulder, elbow, hand or wrist.

Shoulder — The shoulder has an extremely wide range of motion. It is often injured by trauma that tears the rotator cuff or labrum or causes tendonitis or arthritis. Effective treatment requires stabilizing the joint capsule, healing the tendons and cartilage using prolotherapy and PRP therapy on shoulders.

Elbow — Elbow pain from activities such as golf, tennis, climbing, and baseball or from trauma is often a combination of ligament sprain and tendonitis that consistently responds to prolotherapy and PRP.

Hand and wrist — All of the joints in your wrists and hands are held together by ligaments that are often strained or otherwise injured by activities such as golf, yoga or a fall. Wrist, thumb and finger injuries respond to prolotherapy and PRP.

Transcript:

In terms of this kind of joint pain problem, one of our patients said that it directly impacted her employment as a court reporter. She was basically at court typing all day long. She would have to hold her wrists and do things that created a trauma. We were able to do four prolotherapy treatments with her. She was able to renew her court reporting, which then had ramifications in terms of lowering their financial stress as well as giving her sports activities back. So that’s one example.

We have had several patients who have had chronic wrist injuries that prevented them from doing yoga. Sometimes that extreme extension that happens with the downward dog can strain the ligaments of the wrist. And so that’s a very common and usually easily treated condition using prolotherapy in conjunction with other naturopathic medicine modalities.
