As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Shoulder pain is a common complaint that can result from various underlying causes, including injuries, overuse, degenerative conditions, or underlying medical conditions. Shoulder pain may manifest as dull aches, sharp stabbing pain, or discomfort with movement, and it can significantly impact your ability to perform daily activities and affect your overall quality of life. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder pain, offering comprehensive care to alleviate symptoms and improve shoulder function.

When you experience shoulder pain, it is essential to undergo a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process with a detailed medical history review, followed by a comprehensive physical examination and may utilize imaging studies such as X-rays, ultrasound, or MRI to assess the structures of the shoulder joint.

Treatment options for shoulder pain at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Conservative therapies: For mild to moderate shoulder pain, conservative treatments such as rest, ice or heat therapy, activity modification, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and physical therapy may be recommended to reduce pain and inflammation, improve shoulder strength and flexibility, and promote healing.
  • Corticosteroid injections: We offer ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injections to provide targeted pain relief and reduce inflammation in the shoulder joint, allowing for improved range of motion and function.
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: We utilize PRP injections to stimulate tissue healing and repair in the damaged structures of the shoulder joint, promoting natural regeneration and improving shoulder function.
  • Regenerative medicine: In addition to PRP therapy, we offer other regenerative treatments such as stem cell therapy or autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) injections to enhance the healing process and improve outcomes for chronic or severe shoulder pain.

Minimally invasive procedures: In cases of persistent or severe shoulder pain that does not respond to conservative treatments, we may offer minimally invasive procedures such as ultrasound-guided injections or percutaneous needle tenotomy to provide targeted pain relief and promote healing
