Shoulder

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

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. However, it is an unstable joint because of the range of motion allowed. It is vulnerable to both acute traumatic injuries and wear-and-tear conditions brought on by heavy work or repetitive activities.

How Does Shoulder Pain Start?

The shoulder must be anchored by its muscles, tendons, and ligaments to remain stable. Some shoulder problems arise from the disruption of these soft tissues as a result of injury or from overuse of the shoulder. Other problems arise from a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well.

Why Seek A Specialist?

The care of some shoulder conditions still requires standard surgical incisions, but many conditions can be treated with a far less invasive technique called shoulder arthroscopy. Most conditions do not need surgery and can be treated with conservative methods such as anti-inflammatory drugs, injections, and/or physical therapy.
