Shoulder Conditions And Treatments

Shoulder Conditions And Treatments

Shoulder pain or injury can result from strenuous use, playing sports or repetitive movement. Certain diseases in the cervical spine can also bring about pain that travels to the shoulder.

At PinnacleHealth, our shoulder experts take a multidisciplinary approach to treating a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis

If shoulder pain is affecting your life, we can help. We will diagnose your condition and devise a treatment plan that may first include nonsurgical options such as rest, physical therapy, injections or over-the-counter medications to relieve pain and inflammation. But if your symptoms persist or get worse, surgical intervention may be the best option.

Experts In Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques

At PinnacleHealth, we specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques that decrease pain and recovery time. Most of our procedures are laparoscopic and use robotic capabilities, resulting in smaller incisions and minimal blood loss and scarring.

Types of surgical procedures for the shoulder include:

  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Shoulder resurfacing
  • Fracture repair
