The shoulder is comprised of the clavicle (collarbone), scapula (shoulder blade), and humerus (upper arm bone), as well as numerous muscles, ligaments, and tendons. We utilize our shoulders for both mobility and stability, including lifting, pushing, and pulling.
The shoulder is a versatile and valuable joint. When it is injured, the pain can significantly reduce its flexibility and motion, limiting your ability to perform certain functions.
Shoulder pain can have many causes. It could begin due to trauma like a fall or accident, come from a condition like arthritis or tendonitis, or the shoulder could be injured by overuse.
At Golden State Orthopedic & Spine (GSOS), we have a multi-faceted approach to shoulder pain, conditions and injuries treatment to relieve associated pain and improve function. We start with the least invasive treatment, but we also are highly trained in surgery should it be needed.
Our orthopedic physicians specializing in treating shoulder injuries and conditions have undergone residency, fellowship, and continuing education training.
