Shoulder pain is one of the most common orthopaedic conditions, and can nearly always be successfully treated. Injuries or wear-and-tear frequently affect the shoulder, which has the most range of motion of any joint in the body. Our surgeons have specialty training and experience to treat shoulder problems, both surgically and non-surgically.
Common Shoulder Problems Include:
Osteoarthritis is a disease that causes the cartilage in your joints to break down. Osteoarthritis becomes more common as people get older.
The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body, but if your shoulder joint is injured, it may become unstable. This is called shoulder instability.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Your rotator cuff helps you reach, throw, push, pull, and lift. Without it, your shoulder cannot do its job.
The first symptom you may have is shoulder pain. You may feel as if you’ve injured your shoulder.
Shoulder pain when raising your arm may mean you have impingement syndrome. This is pinching within your shoulder.
