Treating Shoulder Infirmities Research Compiled for The Paper  Store, Inc. by 12/2011 Please   Upper extremity injuries can result in tremendous pain and physical impairment. Treatment approaches vary substantially according to the injury. One of the longer lasting problems  associated with these injuries, however, can be the establishment of arthritis in the affected joint. The presence of either osteoarthritis or rheumatoid types of arthritis can greatly complicate treatment  significantly. Traditional forms of treatment have proven only partially effective in treating these types of injuries to allow ongoing sports training in particular. Fortunately, today other types of  therapy are being more commonly considered to accentuate the traditional types of treatment. Prolotherapy, PRP (platelet rich plasma therapy) and bone growth stimulation are all treatment options which should  be considered in treating joint pain as it relates to sports training as complicated by various forms of arthritis. The upper  body is hinged together by a collection of joints. These joints vary significantly, however, in terms of both function and structure. Some are simply connective points between bones  while others are critical components that allow movement. Joints, some more so than others it seems, are susceptible to a variety of injuries and diseases. They are also  subject to deterioration through aging. The shoulder joint, it seems is particularly susceptible to injuries that can greatly affect sports training.
