Your shoulder consists of three bones – your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle) – and multiple muscles and tendons. Problems of the shoulder include inflammation of the tendons, tendon tear (such as a rotator cuff tear), arthritis, instability, or fracture. In some cases, shoulder pain can resolve with changes in activity, rest, and physical therapy. Your New England Orthopedic specialist will determine the best treatment for your condition. If the pain does not go away, your specialist may recommend one of the following:
- Ultrasound-Guided Injections
- Rotator Cuff Repair
- Shoulder Arthroscopy
- Shoulder Replacement (Arthroplasty)
