What’s causing your shoulder pain?

Inflammation, whether it’s in the joints (arthritis), tendons (tendinitis) or fluid-filled sacs (bursitis), is a common cause for shoulder pain and discomfort. Pinched nerves, shoulder dislocations, bone fractures and sports injuries can also lead to pain, muscle stiffness and limited mobility.

With thorough exams and advanced imaging technology, your orthopedic specialist can provide an accurate diagnosis and find the source of your shoulder pain.
