Shoulder pain can arise from many different structures. If shoulder pain prevents you from completing daily activities, you may be considering surgical intervention. Shoulder surgery can be challenging due to the complexity of the joint and can involve a lengthy recovery with significant risks for complications. Other treatment options may only mask the pain temporarily or require long term pain management treatments that can be harmful to your body or restrict your mobility.
At Derrington Orthopedics – Interventional Sports and Spine, we encourage our patients to consider Regenexx procedures as an alternative to shoulder surgery to alleviate pain and improve function with minimally invasive injections, shorter recovery periods, and no need for long term pain medication.
