Shoulder & Elbow
Shoulder and elbow pain are extremely common complaints that have many causes. Because we use our arms for so many common activities, shoulder and elbow pain can cause significant problems and have several different causes.
Arthritis is a major cause of shoulder pain. During arthritis, the cartilage is worn away and the protective lining between the bones is lost, causing painful bone-on-bone friction and rubbing.
Severe shoulder arthritis is quite painful and can cause restricted motion. Additionally, injury resulting in strains and fractures can be another cause for shoulder and elbow pain. In order to receive proper treatment, the cause of the problem must be identified, and then a treatment approach developed and executed.
At South Palm Orthopedics, we have specific expertise in a broad spectrum of shoulder, elbow, and upper extremity problems, and we employ the latest in surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat these problems.
