Rotator cuff tendonitis is an injury usually caused by overuse of the arm. It is wise to view it as the prelude to tearing your rotator cuff and therefore well worthy of your attention. If you have ever heard of someone diagnosed with Swimmer’s or Pitcher’s or Tennis Shoulder, they are all suffering from an inflamed or irritated rotator cuff tendon. Most people can regain complete use of their shoulder, but for some, the pain can become chronic and that is where we come in.
  • Pain at the front of the shoulder or along arm
  • Swelling at the front of shoulder or arm
  • Pain raising or lowering your arm
  • Pain when reaching behind back
  • Poor arm motion or mobility
  • Arm weakness
  • Clicking when raising your arm
  • Stiffness of shoulder
  • Pain at night
The long term success of Dr. Greenberg’s patients is attributed to a specialized approach to the examination process. Deemed “The Greenberg Method,” this diagnostic approach not only looks into the area of damage and pain, but also evaluates the mechanics and structure of the bone and joints related to the area of the pain. For instance, abnormal scapular positioning and movement will put excessive strain across the rotator cuff leading to microscopic tearing and pain. Additionally, this abnormal positioning will cause the acromion to press down on the rotator cuff which can cause or contribute to pain in the shoulder. In executing The Greenberg Method, Dr. Greenberg often discovers that conditions experienced in one area of the body are often rooted in a different area that hasn’t been treated before. While an isolated joint treatment ignores physiology and the evaluation of movement, The Greenberg Method’s full-body examination produces a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan. In return, the patient experiences a greater reduction in pain and improvement in function, which helps them get back on their feet to resume their daily routines, pain free.

Dr. Greenberg’s team will first perform The Greenberg Method including a review of your most recent radiographs. They will carefully examine and palpate your neck, back and shoulders to gain a comprehensive understanding of the kinetic integrity of the musculoskeletal systems along your shoulders, shoulder blades, neck and arms.

If you are an appropriate candidate for The Greenberg Method (TGM), Dr. Greenberg will treat your tendonitis pain by regenerating the joint systems of your rotator cuff and your entire shoulder joint. For tendonitis, he will administer a healing and synergistic cascade of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Treatments on an individual basis. TGM uses your own stem cells called adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADMSC).

A typical TGM treatment course may call for several injections performed every 3 weeks depending on the patient’s response. The treatments initiate natural healing processes, factors and cells that strengthen and renew sinews, ligaments, tendons, nerves and cartilage to stabilize the shoulder and all essential joints. If we find additional areas that may be causing pain, we will try to fix those too. As the entire structure of the shoulder joint and scapula grows stronger, stability will return and pain will dissipate.
