Shoulder & Elbow Injuries

Comprehensive Care for Shoulder and Elbow Injuries

The joints and muscles in your shoulders and elbows are vital to your ability to perform everyday tasks such as lifting, carrying, driving, and writing, as well as most sports activities. That’s because the ball-and-socket glenohumeral joint of your shoulder allows for an extensive range of motion, while the elbow joint allows for the flexion and extension of your forearm relative to your upper arm and the rotation of your forearm and wrist.

However, both joints are prone to dislocation. The complex rotator cuff in your shoulder is particularly sensitive to overuse injury or trauma.

  • Dislocated shoulder

At Spectrum Orthopaedics, our shoulder and elbow experts treat these injuries and conditions by first performing a comprehensive evaluation of the affected area and ordering diagnostic testing to ensure an accurate diagnosis. We then use the most innovative and minimally invasive techniques – including joint injections, cryotherapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and rehabilitation to help eliminate your pain and significantly improve your range motion.

If physical therapy and other nonsurgical treatments prove insufficient, surgery may be necessary. In that case, our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons are trained and equipped to successfully perform a wide range of surgical procedures including arthroscopic repair, total shoulder replacement for osteoarthritis, and shoulder impingement surgery.

You needn’t let shoulder or elbow pain prevent you from enjoying your normal activities.
