Avoid Shoulder Surgery. Consider the Regenerative Alternative.
Why Surgery Should Always Be Your Last Treatment Option.
Shoulder pain is a very common problem, whether it’s from an acute injury, such as a rotator cuff tear, or osteoarthritis due to aging and the degenerative process.
Unfortunately, surgery is commonly presented as the only option to patients by their doctors, even when studies have shown that many of these surgeries produce no benefit, or are minimally effective for treating the condition. Oftentimes, physical therapy alone produces equal outcomes when compared to common surgeries.
While there are times when surgery is certainly required, regenerative treatments are quickly becoming the preferred surgical alternative for conditions ranging from tendon and ligament tears, arthritis, instability, overuse injuries and many other conditions that cause shoulder pain.
Regenerative treatment patients avoid the long list of surgical risks, which are often not experienced until well after the surgery. Besides the risks associated with the surgery, patients deal with painful and lengthy recovery periods to try and regain strength and range of motion. And depending on the type of surgery, patients are likely to experience an earlier onset of arthritis, due to the surgical removal of tissue that typically stabilizes or cushions the joint.
With regenerative treatments, patients benefit from minimal downtime and are encouraged to return to activity. We have seen plenty of regenerative patients experience a full recovery and become pain-free, even when surgery or joint replacement was originally recommended for their condition.
