Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Treatment for Rotator Cuff Injury
This non-surgical procedure treats rotator cuff injury with an injection of the patient's own blood platelets. The concentrated platelets promote the natural healing of damaged ligaments, cartilage and tendons.
Rotator Cuff Tears
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that cover the head of the humerus and hold it securely inside the shoulder socket. The cuff helps maintain joint stability while allowing the arm to lift and rotate. A tear of the rotator cuff can be painful and can interfere with shoulder movement. Four muscles make up the cuff: the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis muscles.
Suprascapular Nerve Block (Fluoroscopically Guided)
This outpatient procedure is used to treat pain and discomfort from arthritis, bursitis or impingement of the suprascapular nerve in the shoulder joint. The suprascapular nerve is a major motor nerve that serves the muscles of the shoulder.
