Shoulder pain is extremely common and is the third leading cause of orthopedic disability in the United States both in adults and children.
There are actually many causes for shoulder pain. There are various traumatic causes like shoulder dislocation and shoulder fractions and tears to the rotator cuff. There are many degenerative conditions such as shoulder arthritis and the shoulder tendons can wear out as well. The first step in diagnosing shoulder pain is sitting down with your physician for a history and physical exam. After that we often order an x-ray or even MRI so we can confirm what’s going on in your shoulder and direct treatment.
There are many treatments for shoulder pain. Conservative treatments consist of physical therapy sometimes pain medication we also give injections. We also do joint replacement surgery for arthritis. You don’t have to suffer with shoulder pain. We have many options available.
The decision to have ankle replacement surgery is primarily based on pain that interferes with activities one usually performs in the course of a day. When this pain cannot be controlled by bracing or over-the-counter medication, it is appropriate to consider surgery.
If you decide with your doctor that ankle replacement is the best option, our goal is to return you to a more normal, healthy lifestyle as soon as possible after your procedure.
