If you’re having trouble moving your shoulder, our sports medicine and orthopedic doctors can develop a treatment plan focused on controlling your pain and restoring your motion and strength through physical therapy. Surgery often is not necessary.


Treatment may start with anti-inflammatory drugs and heat. Our physical therapists will use stretching exercises to increase your range of motion. We may use ultrasound, ice and medicines, including cortisone injections, to reduce pain and swelling. If these treatments don’t help, arthroscopic surgery, which removes scar tissue and adhesions from inside the shoulder joint, may be the best treatment option.
