The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body. It is made up of three bones and two important joints that allow for movement. The rotator cuff has muscles and tendons to provide mobility and strength to the joint. Articular cartilage covers the surface of the bones and acts as a cushion between the bones. Depending on the nature of the problem, nonsurgical methods of treatment often are recommended before surgery. However, in some instances, delaying the surgical repair of a shoulder can increase the likelihood that the problem will be more difficult to treat later. Early, correct diagnosis and treatment of shoulder problems can make a significant difference in the long run. Until recently there have been limited remedies for chronic shoulder pain or limited mobility and function. At Orthopedic Sports Enhancement Center we offer the full spectrum of shoulder treatments and remedies, both non-surgical and surgical.
