Treating Chronic Shoulder Pain

Get back to pain-free motion without surgery

Total shoulder replacement surgery is a major operation carrying the inherent risks associated with anesthesia, surgery, and hospital-based infections.
AROmotion preserves your natural joint while effectively treating common conditions including Bone-on-Bone Osteoarthritis. Our approach enables patients to avoid scarring and a surgical recovery period.
Developed by a collaborative team of Physicians, Surgeons, and University Scientists, our treatment combines three nontraumatic medical modalities to achieve rapid and lasting pain relief, surpassing the outcomes of joint replacements.

Understanding Shoulder Pain

Cut out the pain not the Joint

Shoulder Pain has two distinct sources

Shoulder pain can originate from two distinct sources: rotator cuff tears and joint arthritis. If you're considering shoulder replacement surgery, it's likely due to arthritis rather than rotator cuff tears.

Rotator Cuff Tears have nothing to do with why you are having your total shoulder replacement

Rotator cuff tears are not the reason for total shoulder replacement surgery, and they're not repaired during the procedure. Despite their prevalence among individuals over 65, rotator cuff tears are seldom the leading cause of pain in patients with shoulder osteoarthritis. In most cases, Chondromalacia is the primary cause of pain.

Pain is not just a symptom, Pain is the root cause of osteoarthritis

You have shoulder pain and swelling, because this hard type 2 articular cartilage that coats the ends of your bone has developed shallow spots or cavities which get deeper over time, the sensory nerves underneath are less protected and feel more pain when you put pressure on that spot. The medical term for these cavities is Chondromalacia (ICD-code M94.26) and is the code used to bill for a total shoulder replacement operation.

replacement surgery is the only tool the orthopedics surgery has to treat osteoarthritis Pain

Whether you have simple arthritic pain from Chondromalacia or a mechanically compromised joint. The Orthopedic Surgeons only have one tool in their box. It's like going to a dentist who doesn't know how to do a filling or root-canal, so EVERYONE gets a crown!

The AROmotion treatment is the only proven long lasting non-traumatic solution for osteoarthritis Pain

Our single-visit treatment combines three noninvasive and nontraumatic medical modalities to achieve rapid and lasting pain relief. Our treatment was developed by a collaborative team of physicians, surgeons, and university scientists. Its efficacy has been confirmed through the analysis of WOLMAC data from our patients, spanning over 6 years of clinical treatment. Procedures are performed in-office without the need for general anesthesia or incisions. Patients can conveniently walk in and out on the same day, leaving with only a few band-aids and an ice pack.

Shoulder Osteoarthritis

Shoulder osteoarthritis is a disease that wears down the hyaline cartilage on the end of joint bones, creating cavities in the protective shell around nerve endings. Medically, this is known as chondromalacia. Just like a toothache.

Bone-on-bone Shoulder Pain

You may have heard the phrase “bone-on-bone” to describe your situation. As the shoulder is a ball and socket joint. Over time, however, the hyaline cartilage on the end of bones can wear thin, forming cavities and exposing sensitive nerves.

Rotator Cuff Tear

Despite their prevalence among individuals over 65, rotator cuff tears are seldom the leading cause of pain in patients with shoulder osteoarthritis, and they're not repaired during the procedure. In most cases, Chondromalacia is the primary cause of pain.

Labral Tear

Most people over the age of 60 have some degree of meniscus tearing, fraying or degeneration. Depending on the type of tear, some patients may be able to heal with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation), pain relief medication and physical therapy.

Bone spurs in Shoulder

Over time, Bone spurs occur to protect and stabilize the sides of the joint. Most people form bone spurs and could go years without symptoms. For some, however, bone spurs may reduce a joint’s range of motion despite having a functional joint.
Patient Success Story

My name is Frank and this is my story. My right knee cartilage was gone. I was bone-to-bone. The pain was unbearable. I went to doctors and they wanted to do surgery. They wanted cut out my knee. I didn’t want to go that way. ARO changed my life. I had the procedure done, and now I’m riding, no pain. It’s like I started a new chapter in my life. It’s a miracle, it really is that I’m back cycling. It’s like my dream come true.
