Shoulder Fractures, Dislocations and Separations

The shoulder joint is the most flexible joint in your body. However, its wide range of motion and varied use also makes it more susceptible to injury. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we have a team of leading orthopedic surgeons who are equipped to treat all types of shoulder injuries, including fractures, dislocations and separations. We listen carefully to your concerns and conduct a thorough examination before recommending the most appropriate treatment plan for your shoulder restoration.

Treatment for Common Shoulder Injuries

Fractures, dislocations and separations are among the most common injuries to the shoulder joint. Regardless of your age or the severity of your injury, you can count on our physicians to provide conservative treatment methods that provide long-lasting results. If you have recently suffered a fall to the shoulder, a high-energy trauma or other injury, we can help you regain comfort and full mobility in your shoulder once again.

Shoulder fractures: These are most often the result of an impact injury. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we treat fractures involving the clavicle (collar bone), proximal humerus (top of the upper arm bone), and scapula (shoulder blade).

Shoulder dislocations: The shoulder is the most common dislocated joint in the body. Dislocation occurs when the humerus bone comes completely out of the socket. A shoulder must immediately be put back in place to relieve pain and prevent further complications. We help patients recover from shoulder dislocation by providing shoulder reduction, proper immobilization devices and physical therapy exercises to rebuild strength and range of motion. If your shoulder dislocation resulted in a ligament or tendon tear, our sports medicine specialists can perform minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to repair your shoulder joint.

Shoulder separation: AC (acromioclavicular) joint separation happens when the ligaments that hold the collarbone to the shoulder blade are stretched or separated. Our physicians will examine your injury and grade the severity of your separation before recommending the best treatment option. While most patients recover with conservative treatments, if your ligaments are completely torn, surgery may be needed to successfully replace and reconnect the ligaments.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we pride ourselves on the exceptional and personalized care we extend to each patient. Whether you experience stiffness in your shoulders after playing weekend tennis or you have recently suffered an acute shoulder injury after an accident, we can bring you out of pain and ensure your shoulder joint is restored safely and effectively. We offer a wide range of sports medicine procedures, including surgical and non-surgical methods for the shoulders, knees and hips. Contact our practice today to schedule a consultation with a reputable orthopedic surgeon for your shoulder injury.
