Shoulder Pain Treatment

Living shoulder pain-free is possible. We can help.

When pain, weakness or instability in your shoulder make it difficult to pull or push open a door, throw a ball or reach up into a cabinet, it’s time to see an SSM Health Orthopedics shoulder specialist. We are here to help you find the cause of your shoulder pain and choose a treatment option that will work for you. Whether you enjoy golfing, playing tennis, painting or walking the dog, our experienced team of caregivers will find a solution that will help you be you again.

In many cases, treatment will begin with conservative measures, such as rest, medication, injections, and physical therapy. But, when your pain progresses to the point that these treatments are no longer effective, your physician may recommend other interventions. If surgical repair is needed, you can trust that we use the latest technology and techniques to restore function and relieve your pain. Find an SSM Health Orthopedics shoulder specialist near you today, so you can get back to doing the things you love.
