The shoulder has relatively a wide and versatile range of motion. When something goes wrong with the shoulder than it hampers with your ability to move freely and can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort. Shoulder pain is one of the most common complaints in young athletes and older individuals. It can be brought on by chronic injury or overuse of shoulder.

PRP and shoulder pain

In the past some years, doctors have learned that the body has the ability to heal itself. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a form of regenerative medicine which is using to harness those abilities and amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal injured tissue.
Platelet rich plasma has been found to significantly enhance the healing process by releasing necessary growth factors. Using a PRP for shoulder pain caused by rotator cuff tears, for Achilles tendon ruptures and for other soft-tissue injuries is becoming more common day by day.
PRP for shoulder has also been demonstrated to improve function and reduce pain in people who have tendonitis or chronic tendinosis conditions such as golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow.
Some of the key advantages of PRP injections for shoulder are that they can reduce the need for anti-inflammatories or stronger medications like opioids.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the process of healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.
The best part of PRP for shoulder are that the side effects of PRP injections are very limited because, since the injections are created from your own blood, your body will not react negatively to them or will not reject them.

How does it work?

PRP treatment involves taking a small blood sample from the person who is being treated and then that sample will be put into a centrifuge or other specialized device that spins at high speed. The process separates the platelets from all other blood components. The concentration of these platelets is then injected into the area of the injured shoulder that needs to be treated.
Because the PRP injection contains a high concentration of platelets, which can be from 5 to 10 times more than the untreated blood, doctors theorize that the platelets will speed up healing.
