Finding the right treatmentMany people suffer from wear and tear on joints throughout the course of their lives. But shoulder surgery isn’t always necessary: In the early stages of arthrosis, conservative measures can help slow the progress or even prevent it. Here, we combat the pain with physiotherapy, physical applications, such as cryotherapy or muscle building training.
Conservative treatment methods
Pain therapy provides reliefAn injection (shot) directly into the shoulder joint or upper joint space can provide relief for acute pain in the shoulder. This way, we can reduce the pain and the inflammation in your shoulder joint. Often, this injection treatment is required before further, conservative treatment can begin. Drug-based pain therapy is also often necessary to reduce the pain of active arthrosis. However, pain medications are not a permanent solution.
Improve and maintain mobility with physiotherapy
Once the acute pain has been relieved, we will start targeted exercises that improve mobility in the shoulder joint and release painful tension. Our physiotherapists will help you stretch shortened muscles caused by protective or incorrect posture and strengthen your shoulder muscles. Potentially incorrect posture in the upper sections of the spine can also be corrected in this manner. With improved posture, we can also make you pain free.
Cryotherapy with cold air or ice can also have a positive effect. Alternatively, we can reduce the progression of your arthrosis with x-ray stimulation therapy. Treatments using microwaves, electricity or ultrasound also demonstrate positive effects when treating shoulder arthrosis.
