Shoulder

The shoulder represents one of the most complex joints of the body.

Because the shoulder is the most movable joint in the body, it is vulnerable to both acute traumatic injuries and wear-and-tear conditions brought on by heavy work or repetitive activities. At Sarasota Orthopedic Associates, our experienced physicians are dedicated to treating your shoulder pain with compassionate, trustworthy, and effective care.

How Does Shoulder Pain Start?

To remain stable, the shoulder must be anchored by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. When these soft tissues are disrupted as a result of injury or overuse, issues may arise. Tissue degeneration can also prevent the area from functioning properly, resulting in pain and discomfort. These pain-inducing problems may include arthritis, fractures, instability, tendinitis, infections, and other ailments.

Why Should I Seek a Specialist?

A medical professional can provide you with a thorough and comprehensive evaluation that will help them to pinpoint the underlying issue. They are also equipped to administer effective treatment options. Most conditions do not call for surgery and can be treated with conservative methods such as anti-inflammatory drugs, injections, or physical therapy. However, there are times when standard surgical incisions are still required. Some of these conditions can even be treated with a far less invasive technique called shoulder arthroscopy.

Why Choose Sarasota Orthopedic Associates?

The physicians of Sarasota Orthopedic Associates have decades of experience in the entire spectrum of shoulder conditions. We also utilize advanced medical technology, which assists us in determining the cause of your symptoms.
