The shoulder is one of the most complex joint configurations in the body. The shoulder contains two joints, the ball-and-socket that attaches the arm to the shoulder blade and the AC joint. There is a complicated network of tendons that create the rotator cuff and many other nerves, soft tissues and bones in the shoulder. Shoulder pain, injuries and degenerative conditions require specialized care for effective treatment. At DOCS Health, we offer shoulder injections as one option for treatment at our medical center in Los Angeles.
Injection therapy can be an effective option for both diagnosis and treatment of various types of shoulder pain. Going directly to the source of pain can relieve inflammation or nerve irritation without more invasive procedures. Our interventional pain management specialists at DOCS Health always start with conservative treatment methods when possible. We offer shoulder injections for a variety of shoulder conditions that can offer relief from pain and improve joint mobility.
