Shoulder Conditions We Treat
Common shoulder problems include pain and swelling in the joint due to tendinitis, bursitis, or arthritis. Injuries to the ligaments and tendons can also cause a torn rotator cuff or dislocated shoulder. The orthopedic shoulder experts at Intermountain will help diagnose and treat your shoulder condition.
