Frozen Shoulder: In severe cases, frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, requires treatment beyond range of motion exercise and time. Arthroscopic surgery loosens the joint capsule and makes it easier to move again.
Rotator Cuff Pain: When physical therapy isn’t enough to reduce rotator cuff pain, or the injury is too substantial, surgery is required. The procedure can range from repairing muscles and tendons to replacing the joint.
Shoulder Pain: Shoulder pain is most often caused by instability, arthritis, inflammation such as tendonitis or bursitis, a tear in the tendon, or a broken bone. Surgical treatment is available for all types of shoulder pain.
Knee ACL: Injuries to ligaments in the knee are very common and cause a great deal of knee pain. An MRI is used to diagnose ligament injuries. Postoperative care will require physical therapy.
Arthritis: Unfortunately, arthritis in the shoulder and knee is very common, especially as we get older. If nonsurgical treatment of arthritis of the knee and shoulder doesn’t work, there are several surgical solutions to relieve arthritis pain.
Ligaments and Tears: Torn ligaments in the knee and shoulder may heal on their own, but if the tear is too severe, surgery is required to ensure that it heals and mends properly. Physical therapy is very important to maximize the effectiveness of the surgery.
