Episode 14- Issues with Shoulder Impingement Surgery
Issues with Shoulder Impingement surgery Shoulder impingement results in pain with lifting your arm above your head. The typical surgery for this involves shaving the acromion bone to make more room for the rotator cuff to more freely move. But does this surgery work? A recent article from the British Journal of Sports Medicine shows that shoulder impingement surgery is no better than physical therapy alone or a diagnostic procedure where no intervention is done. What does this mean to you if you have shoulder impingement? -You can likely skip surgery and maximize the nonsurgical alternatives for your shoulder pain. -Get a specific and accurate diagnosis from a physician who focuses on shoulder and musculoskeletal issues. -Have a diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound of your shoulder to evaluate for rotator cuff tear and instability. -Maximize exercise options including physical therapy. -If inadequate, consider a regenerative medicine treatment to improve stability of the shoulder that is causing impingement. Also improve the shoulder by optimizing it’s biologic health, reduce inflammation, and improve the neuromuscular components. ***For evaluation and treatment at Chicago Arthritis and Regenerative Medicine: https://www.chicagoarthritis.com/schedule-a-telemedicine-appointment/ Paavola M, Kanto K, Ranstam J, et al Subacromial decompression versus diagnostic arthroscopy for shoulder impingement: a 5-year follow-up of a randomised, placebo surgery controlled clinical trial British Journal of Sports Medicine 05 October 2020.
Episode 13- Chronic Injuries, Regenerative Medicine approach
How to treat Chronic Injuries- Regenerative Medicine approach We all have chronic injuries. Even after recovering from an acute injury the involved area is more prone to long term degeneration, instability, and pain. In this video I discuss a healthier approach to managing chronic injuries that includes a regenerative medicine perspective. Key concepts include treating stability and inflammation. I also discuss a patient with chronic knee issues who with regenerative medicine has been able to continue his career as a active duty military professional. ***For evaluation and treatment at Chicago Arthritis and Regenerative Medicine: https://www.chicagoarthritis.com/schedule-a-telemedicine-appointment/
