Prolotherapy and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) are useful conservative measures for the treatment of incomplete tears of the rotator cuff. Musculoskeletal ultrasound can be performed by Dr. Herndon and the painful tears in the rotator cuff can be identified. Prolotherapy and PRP can be injected under ultrasound guidance directly to the injured area. You will experience increased pain for approximately two weeks but after that, your pain from the rotator cuff injury will begin to decrease. As you continue to work with your physical therapist your shoulder strength and range of motion will continue to increase. In most cases, the injections need to be done at least 2 or three times to achieve full effectiveness. Call Georgia Pain Management and Diagnostics for an appointment today! I know you will be glad when you have had this done. How can I say this? I have had it done and it has been a big help for me.
