Patients at this advanced stage can still get pain relief, it just takes a stronger commitment, great diligence to the protocol and more treatments typically. If surgery is truly your best option, we will happily refer you to local Orthopedic Doctors that we know and trust.
This really depends on various factors such as the patients age, severity of damage to the shoulder joint, treatment history, weight, other medical conditions etc. Generally, the treatments cost a small fraction of the price of shoulder surgery and can be more cost-effective than continuous steroid and daily NSAIDs, like Ibuprofen. New patients also receive $250 off their 1st treatment.
Regenerative injections have better outcomes in pain reduction and increased functionality at 3, 6, and 12 month follow-ups compared to steroids (cortisone).
This is impossible to answer without knowing your medical history, treatment history, diet, lifestyle, imaging reports, and conducting an extensive in office orthopedic examination.

Yes! Stretching is an excellent exercise for shoulder pain. It provides minimal stress and load on the shoulder joint, while increasing blood flow. It is important to be consistent with stretching with the goal of 5-7 days per week for at least 10 minutes.
Shoulder pain can be caused by many different things, which is why it is very important to get evaluated by a doctor to find out the source of the pain. Sometimes imaging such as an x-ray or MRI may be needed to figure out what the problem is. The most common causes of shoulder pain are arthritis and rotator cuff injuries / degeneration. This is typically experienced later in life and is a degenerative joint condition in which the supporting connective tissue begins to wear out. Other common causes of shoulder pain include: tendinitis, ligament tears, tendon tears, labrum tears and inflammation.
One of the most basic and helpful home remedies is simply icing your shoulder. This helps temporarily take away pain and relieve inflammation. Another popular strategy is rotating between ice and heat. Typically 30 seconds of ice and 2 minutes of heat repeated 3 times in a row once per day.
Repeated steroid injections (ex cortisone), chronic NSAID use (ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen, diclofenac etc) and excess weight gain (obesity) are all extremely detrimental to the health and longevity of the shoulder joint and should be avoided.
This varies from person to person, but generally speaking extreme pain 7/10 or higher on a daily basis with decreased function and limited activities you can complete. Additionally, x-ray and MRI findings showing advanced deterioration and designation of the connective tissue supporting the joint would all be good indications to consider a shoulder replacement.
This depends on what type of shoulder pain you are experiencing and the severity. For severe cases where there is a complete tear or advanced degeneration, surgery will be the fastest way to alleviate the pain. For non-surgical cases, regenerative non-surgical joint repair injections will be the fastest and most effective long term option to relieve shoulder pain.
