Shoulder joints allow us to bend, flex, reach and rotate our arms. However, repetitive overhead movements that are common to jobs and sports frequently overstress the shoulder joints resulting in injury. Your orthopaedic surgeon will review the results of your evaluation with you and discuss the best treatment.
When issues related to tendon tears, instability, fracture arthritis and other conditions impair movement, both surgical and non-surgical treatments are considered to ease pain and assist in restoring movement. You and your Peninsula Bone & Joint Clinic doctor may agree that surgery is the best treatment option
