Providing Relief for Shoulder Pain and Problems
Shoulder pain and injuries are one of the most common reasons for visits to the orthopedic surgeon or sports medicine doctor. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, weakness, or changes in your range of motion. Shoulder injuries most commonly occur during sports activities, work-related tasks, projects around the home, or falls.
At Sharp HealthCare, our fellowship-trained shoulder specialists diagnose and treat a range of shoulder conditions. Our dedicated team can help identify the cause of your shoulder pain and develop a treatment plan. We offer non-operative treatment to minimally invasive shoulder replacement surgery.
