The shoulder is a highly mobile joint composed of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bones, all of which are prone to injury with activity and sports. People experiencing shoulder pain may be suffering from a variety of conditions such as bursitis, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, or degenerative arthritis. Shoulder pain can also be caused by sports injuries or other accidents, and those over the age of 50 are especially susceptible to developing rotator cuff tendon tears.
Symptoms of shoulder pain can range from mild to severe, and may disturb physical activity and sleep. Pain, weakness, and a loss of range of motion are all symptoms of a shoulder injury. Those who participate in high-risk sports, those whose jobs involve physical labor or older adults are all at a higher risk for a painful shoulder injury.

We will review, with you, your current and older X-rays, MRI’s, EMG’s and other diagnostic testing that you may have had performed. In many cases, if you do not have possession of images or reports we can request a copy of them from the facility where they were performed.
If you have not yet had these diagnostics performed we can easily help you to get them performed and reviewed with you. It is very important that you have an understanding of your condition and a brief explanation of these tests are very helpful as you navigate to determine the most appropriate treatment.
