One of the most mobile joints in the body, the shoulder is an area comprised of 3 bones, and several muscles, ligaments and tendons. It is inherently an “unstable” joint because of the wide range of motion it requires and the small amount of space in the joint. The shoulder demands mobility for a wide range of actions of the arms and hands, but also stability to allow for actions such as lifting, pushing and pulling.
Common Shoulder Pain Sources
This inherent instability can easily lead to injuries such as muscle injury, arthritis or “wear and tear” of the joint cartilage, dislocations and fracture. Overuse injuries, especially among athletes and aging adults are quite common. These often present as shoulder pain and/or limited function.
Whether you are an athlete experiencing pain, or an aging adult with limited mobility, or have suffered trauma from a fall or accident, the shoulder surgeons at Orthopedic ONE will first conduct a thorough physical evaluation using advanced diagnostic equipment if necessary. There are a variety of both surgical and non surgical treatment options for conditions of the shoulder. A qualified orthopedic shoulder doctor can help effectively diagnose and treat most conditions.
