Being that the shoulder joint allows for a wide range of motions, this also makes the shoulder vulnerable to varying degrees of injury.

Whether you're suffering from frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, or a rotator cuff tear, our shoulder doctors are experts in diagnosing and treating shoulder conditions or injuries and will help you return to your active lifestyle quickly and safely. 

Common Shoulder Conditions

Best described as a ball-and-socket joint, the anatomy of the shoulder makes it the only joint in the body to have a 360-degree movement. However, what also comes with this flexibility is the susceptibility to injury or overuse conditions like shoulder bursitis. Common causes of shoulder pain and discomfort can include tears within the rotator cuff, tendon injuries, or arthritis.

Our shoulder doctors and surgeons have extensive experience and advanced specialty training to address many shoulder conditions and injuries, including the following: 

  • Shoulder Tendonitis
  • Sports-Related Injuries
  • Suprascapular Neuropathy
  • Tendinosis
