Your Shoulder Pain Could Be Telling You Something Atlanta, GA

The saying, “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone,” is true when you begin experiencing shoulder pain, or loss of shoulder mobility. Naturally, we all take for granted our fully functioning and pain-free bodies. This is true when it comes to our shoulders as well. When you begin to experience shoulder discomfort or loss of mobility, your body is trying to tell you that you may need to see a doctor.

There are four main categories of shoulder issues:

  • Tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendinitis) or tendon tear.
  • Instability
  • Arthritis
  • Fracture (broken bone)

When you begin experiencing any of these shoulder problems, it’s important to listen to your body and consult with a doctor right away to prevent further pain or injury, and to get you on the road to recovery as quickly as possible. During your appointment, the doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will look at your medical history, conduct a thorough physical examination and we may order specific tests to further help identify the cause of your pain and any other factors that may be contributing to your condition.

After giving a diagnosis of your condition, the specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will make a treatment plan that is best for you. If nonsurgical treatments such as rest, physical therapy or medications have failed to relieve your shoulder pain, arthroscopy may be recommended. This advanced procedure can be used to treat a wide range of shoulder problems.

Contact our offices at Ortho Sport & Spine today to get you on the best treatment path for your shoulder pain.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
