Shoulder pain that is persistent and can be indicative of a more serious shoulder condition that will need medical attention and treatment. Shoulder pain might be caused by:

Many causes of shoulder pain can be treated by an orthopedic specialist and the sooner you receive treatment, the more likely you are to experience a quick recovery.

  • Physical therapy
  • Stretching
  • Anti-inflammatory prescriptions
  • Steroid injections
  • Shoulder surgery

If you are experiencing shoulder pain and believe that you need orthopedic treatment, we can help you find an orthopedic specialist that is right for your situation.
