Shoulder Pain and Injuries
The shoulder is prone to injury because it allows the widest range of motion of any other joint in the body. Also, your shoulder joint is under near-constant stress. So, it’s no wonder that athletes and non-athletes alike commonly experience shoulder injuries, such as a torn rotator cuff, bursitis, and more.
We see and treat patients of all ages and activity levels who have shoulder pain or injuries. In many cases, these shoulder conditions can be treated without surgery. Physical therapy, and PRP therapy are possible alternatives to shoulder surgery. When you come to Advanced Sports Medicine Center, we have you covered either way, and we’d love to discuss all options with you personally.
Common Shoulder Pain Conditions
Common shoulder conditions we treat at Advanced Sports Medicine include:
- Chronic shoulder pain

- Rotator cuff tears (shoulder muscles and tendons)
