Bear Shoulder Pain No Longer
Your shoulders bear a lot of weight, even though they rest at the top of your body. They help you lift things, work with your arms and even sit properly. Like most people, you probably take your shoulders for granted. When they begin to hurt, however, you suddenly can’t do things you’ve always done before. If your shoulder pain is affecting your daily life, come see the professionals at NJ Pain Care Specialists.
Your shoulders work hard for you, so it shouldn’t be surprising that many Americans suffer from some type of undiagnosed shoulder pain. As a ball and socket joint, the shoulder supplies a very large range of motion, but is often overextended to the point of injury. There are a number of effective treatments for general shoulder pain; one of the most common is the Subacromial Injection. During an office visit, a solution is injected into the affected area to reduce pain and inflammation in the shoulder joint. Most patients feel little or no pain within a few days. Depending on the severity of the injury, the shoulder injection might also be done with a fluroscope or ultrasound in the surgical center.
Sometimes shoulder pain is caused by damage to the Suprascapular nerve that delivers messages to the shoulder region. The Suprascapular Nerve Block is one of the safer and more effective treatments for this type of shoulder pain. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology similar to the procedure above, your doctor will locate the affected area and supply a cortisone injection to not only reduce pain but also the inflammation in the nerve.
