Shoulder Pain

Overview

The amazing mobility of the shoulder can come with a price — painful dysfunction of the bony structures and surrounding soft tissue. Inflammatory conditions such as tendinitis, bursitis and arthritis can be at the root of persistent pain. The pain associated with frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis), swimmer’s shoulder (impingement syndrome) and rotator cuff disorder can interfere with range of motion. Fortunately, there are effective treatments to alleviate pain and improve shoulder mobility.

How Our Doctors Diagnose

In addition to a physical examination and thorough discussion of the pain you’re experiencing and your medical history, we have an array of tests and imaging to help diagnose the source of your pain: x-ray, MRI, CT scans, blood test (to detect infection or viruses), bone scan, discography, nerve studies such as electromyography, arthrogram (x-ray with injected dye) and arthroscopy, which introduces a fiber-optic camera into the joint to detect damage other tests cannot.

Treatment Options

  • Shoulder injections
  • Cervical steroid injection
  • Facet joint injections
  • Spinal cord stimulation (SCS)
  • Radiofrequency ablation (neuorotomy) (RFA)
  • Dorsal root ganglion therapy (DRG)

Been going to Spine and Joint for the last few years and my experiences have been positive. Recently had a procedure done and the environment was relaxed, pleasant, and professional. This helps ease some of the stress and edginess that comes with most medical procedures. Thank you S&J.
