Shoulder Treatment

Shoulder Anatomy

The shoulder is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. The shoulder joint forms where your upper arm bone fits into your scapula, like a ball-and-socket type connection. Other important bones in the shoulder include:

  • The acromion - bony projection off the scapula
  • The clavicle (collarbone) - meets the acromion in the acromioclavicular joint
  • The coracoid - hook-like bony projection from the scapula

The other important structures found in the shoulder:

  • The rotator cuff - a collection of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder, giving it support and allowing a wide range of motion
  • The bursa - a small sac of fluid that cushions and protects the rotator cuff
  • The labrum - cartilage formed like a cup for the ball-like head of the humerus to fit into

Shoulder Treatments
  • Corticosteroid (Cortisone) Injections - An injection performed by an orthopedic doctor helps relieve inflammation & pain in the shoulder due to arthritis and bursitis. The effects of the cortisone injection can last several weeks.
  • Shoulder Surgery - Generally performed to help make the shoulder more stable. Shoulder surgery can be arthroscopic.
  • Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery - The orthopedic surgeon performs a small incision in the shoulder to treat the joints’ condition. A tiny camera called an arthroscope aids in the procedure along with pencil-sized tools. Shoulder arthroscopy shows to have a much faster recovery time than open surgery.
  • Physical Therapy.
  • Medications that help reduce pain & inflammation.
