PRP IN LESIONS OF THE SHOULDER
We have seen on several articles the use of Growth Factors (PRP), today we’re going to try “THE SHOULDER”.
Shoulder injuries are basically mechanical or biological origin. The mechanical causes are due to acute trauma or repetitive microtrauma and manifest as tendon ruptures, labrum, etc. The biological origin ones are a product of bone and tissue degeneration.
Growth factors are used to treat muscle injuries, joint and tendon. It is an effective treatment for healing and symptom relief given by these injuries.
The most common injuries of the shoulder are:
• Injuries to the rotator cuff (a group of tendons and muscles that provide stability to the shoulder).
• Impact acromial
• Acromioclavicular arthritis
• SLAP lesions (labrum lesion or equivalent glenoid labrum in the shoulder of the meniscus of the knee).
• Injury insertion of the long head of the biceps.
• Subscapularis tendon injuries
• frozen shoulder syndrome (adhesive capsulitis)
• Shoulder Calcifications
• Osteoarthritis of the shoulder.
Once done the diagnosis after the symptomatology and tests as RX, ultrasound, MRI, together with the examination of the patient by the traumatologist, and depending on the injury and outreach specialist, will decide the best treatment to follow.
Today there are many of these injuries can be treated without surgery with infiltrations of Growth Factors (PRP), minimally invasive therapy that is performed without hospitalization, as an outpatient. Treatment is usually three infiltrations with an interval of about two weeks between them.
You can lead a normal life but with rest of sport or heavy exertion, is also accompanied by physiotherapy.
Sometimes there are injuries that require one more infiltration or surgery is necessary, but factors are also applied for a better and faster recovery.
