We are here to help you find the cause of your shoulder pain and choose a treatment option that will work for you. Whether you enjoy golfing, playing tennis, painting, or walking the dog, our experienced team of caregivers will find a solution that will help you be you again.
Shoulder pain results from various causes, including injury, arthritis from “wear and tear,” or overuse. The sooner an orthopedic specialist can evaluate the source of your shoulder pain, the better the chance for a favorable outcome. The most common causes of shoulder pain include:

Treatment will begin with conservative measures in many cases, such as rest, medication, injections, and physical therapy. But, when your pain progresses to the point that these treatments are no longer effective, your physician may recommend other interventions. If surgical repair is needed, you can trust that we use the latest technology and techniques to restore function and relieve your pain.
