What Is Shoulder Pain Injection Therapy?
Shoulder injection therapy treats pain using anti-inflammatory medications combined with a local anesthetic. The goal of shoulder pain injection therapy is to relieve pain and reduce the swelling in a shoulder joint. When pain is reduced, you have increased range of motion in the shoulder joint.
The shoulder ball-and-socket joint allows a wide range of movements, which makes it vulnerable to injury. The joint has more range of motion than any other joint in your body. An injury, disease or effects usually cause the debilitating pain that affects your quality of life.
Dr. Ilana Etelzon, a pain management specialist in New York City, uses shoulder injections and other advanced techniques for pain treatments at her practice. The pain doctor integrates a holistic approach to treat pain using minimally invasive procedures and regenerative medicine.
