  • Osteoarthritis- This is where there is a loss of cartilage in the joints. The breaking cartilage thickens the bones causing pain and stiffness. In severe cases, where non-surgical shoulder treatments are not effective, surgeries may be performed.

Possible Treatments May Include:

  • Injections

    Injections help to ease pain and reduce inflammation in the affected area. Injections such as Cortisone are commonly administered to patients suffering from shoulder problems at the joint.

  • Physical Therapy

    Orthopedic shoulder physical therapy will rehabilitate injuries in the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons. Exercises aid in the strengthening, increase in motion and reducing of swelling of the ailment.

  • Surgical Options

    Depending on the severity of the injury, surgery options can range from a minimally invasive procedure to a total shoulder replacement.

  • Medications

    Often times anti-inflammatory and pain medications are used alongside another form of treatment such as physical therapy.
