Shoulder Injections

Shoulder injections have emerged as innovative and effective therapeutic options for managing a spectrum of shoulder conditions, including osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tendinitis, and sports injuries. Among the diverse range of injections, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), and stem cell injections play pivotal roles in providing relief, promoting healing, and restoring shoulder function.

Osteoarthritis Management

Shoulder osteoarthritis, marked by the degeneration of cartilage in the shoulder joint, can result in pain and limited mobility. PRP injections have gained prominence as a regenerative therapy in this context. By utilizing the healing properties of platelets, PRP injections aim to stimulate tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain, offering a non-surgical approach to manage shoulder osteoarthritis.

Rotator Cuff Tendinitis

Rotator cuff tendinitis, characterized by inflammation of the tendons in the shoulder, can lead to pain and restricted movement. Steroid injections are commonly employed for their anti-inflammatory properties in treating tendinitis. These injections can provide targeted relief by reducing inflammation around the affected tendons, facilitating improved shoulder function.

Sports Injuries

Shoulder injuries sustained during sports activities often involve inflammation and tissue damage. PRP and stem cell injections have emerged as valuable tools in the treatment arsenal for sports-related shoulder injuries. PRP injections, with their growth factors, promote tissue regeneration, while stem cell injections leverage the body’s own regenerative potential to accelerate healing and enhance recovery.

Shoulder conditions

Regenerative therapies have shown promise in treating various shoulder conditions by promoting tissue repair and regeneration. Here is a list of some shoulder conditions that may be suitable for regenerative therapies:

Rotator cuff tears

Shoulder tendinitis or tendinopathy (Rotator cuff tendinitis)

Shoulder impingement syndrome

Glenohumeral joint osteoarthritis (Shoulder arthritis)

Labral tears: Labral tears, such as SLAP (superior labral tear from anterior to posterior)

Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)

Shoulder instability

Bursitis

Biceps tendinitis

Acromio-clavicular joint arthritis (ACJ OA)

Frozen Shoulder Injection

Frozen shoulder, a condition marked by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint, can benefit from targeted injections. Steroid injections for frozen shoulder play a crucial role in alleviating inflammation and reducing pain, allowing for increased mobility. These injections can be instrumental in managing the symptoms of frozen shoulder and facilitating a more comfortable range of motion.

In the realm of shoulder injections, a comprehensive approach involves tailoring the treatment to the specific needs of the patient and the nature of the shoulder condition. Whether it’s PRP injections for osteoarthritis, steroid injections for tendinitis and frozen shoulder, or stem cell injections for sports injuries, the goal is to optimize healing and restore shoulder function.

Mr Attar has given me my life back. I had a total knee replacement back in October 2018 and I can honestly say its the best decision I have ever made. I was extremely apprehensive about the operation but Mr Attar went through step by step about what would happen both pre and post operation. My mobility has improved from being able to only walk a short distance to completing a 6 mile hike in the Lake District.

From my first meeting with Mr Attar I found him to be professional, courteous, friendly and very easy to talk to. This was my second knee replacement, the first performed by another surgeon, from the time the anaesthetic wore off I knew this was going to be a much easier recovery and it has proved exactly that. From pre-op through admission to my post op visit Mr Attar has been excellent
