The shoulder is made up of several joints that combine with tendons and muscles in order to allow a wide range of motion in the arm. OKC Orthopedics, Sports & Pain Medicine is committed to helping patients diagnose and treat their shoulder pain, and return to the highest level of activity possible. After a comprehensive examination, our team of orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and athletic trainers work together to tailor a treatment plan to each patient’s needs and goals.
Most shoulder problems fall into four major categories:
- Tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendinitis) or tendon tear
Shoulder injuries are vast and the appropriate treatments options depend on the cause, severity and location of the injury. Non-surgical and surgical treatment options are almost always available. Our orthopedic surgeons are experts in shoulder arthroscopy, a minimally invasive procedure in which small instruments and a thin, flexible medical device with a camera pass through an incision the size of a small Band-Aid. After surgery, our physical therapists guide each patient through a personalized rehabilitation program to restore strength and mobility.
