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 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.
