We specialize in a range of shoulder conditions, including:
Broken collar bone
Often the result of a fall or car collision, broken collarbones can be painful and disabling. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments may be used to repair a broken collarbone, depending on the severity and type of damage.
Burns and stingers
An upper arm nerve injury, a burner or a stinger refers to the resulting sensation that occurs in the shoulder-to-hand area. Common cause: contact sports.
The shoulder joint’s flexibility makes it easy to dislocate. Both partial and complete dislocation cause pain and unsteadiness in the shoulder.
Most common among 40 to 60-year-old individuals, frozen shoulder may cause pain, stiffness and immobility. About 90% of patients recover with non-surgical treatments.
Rotator cuff tear: Surgery vs. rehabilitation
Pain and degree of daily use of the arms (e.g., lifting boxes overhead at work) generally determine whether surgery or rehabilitation is the most viable solution for a torn rotator cuff.
Rupture of biceps tendons at the shoulder
Characterized by sharp pain, a “pop” upon injury, cramping, bruising, and weakness of the shoulder, a ruptured biceps tendon often results from lifting or falling. For most patients, non-surgical treatments allow the tendon to recover over time.
Shoulder separation causes mild to severe pain and deformity. The condition generally results from a direct fall onto the shoulder and may or may not require surgery.
Impingement causes irritation and pain within the shoulder. Common in middle-aged adults and young athletes, shoulder impingement is generally improved with non-surgical treatments.
Shoulder pain, one of the most common complaints, can be caused by a variety of conditions such as rotator cuff tears and various types of arthritis, fractures, etc.
