Shoulder and Elbow Pain
The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint like the hip. But unlike the hip, which is less mobile and more stable, the shoulder has a range of motion of 180 degrees. With that mobility comes a lack of stability, making it more vulnerable to wear and tear, injury and occasional dislocation.
For elbows, many extracurricular hobbies and activities require frequent and repetitive movement. You may be familiar with the term “tennis elbow” which leaves patients with pain and discomfort around the elbow joint.
Other sports, like golf and weightlifting, can be hard on your shoulders and elbows, but simple everyday activities like reaching into an overhead cupboard or showering can also take a toll.
Using advanced imaging technology, our shoulder and elbow doctors at Precisions Sports Medicine & Orthopedics can provide a diagnosis and develop a customized treatment plan for you.
Is Shoulder Replacement for me?
Shoulder pain treatment typically begins with pain management, rehabilitation and physical therapy. However, if the degeneration is severe enough, the orthopedic shoulder surgeon may recommend shoulder replacement.
During shoulder replacement surgery, orthopedic shoulder doctors can replace your joint with an artificial one, easing pain and restoring range of motion. Reverse shoulder replacement, which reverses the positions of the ball and socket joints, may be recommended for patients to repair large rotator cuff tears.
Whether your shoulder pain is the result of arthritis, acromioclavicular separation, a rotator cuff injury or anything else, the orthopedic surgery specialists at Precision Sports Medicine & Orthopedics are here to provide expert care that can help you live as pain-free as possible.
