Shoulder and Elbow

Your shoulders and elbows are in constant motion, making it difficult to live with pain or limited use. The shoulder joint, unlike other joints in our body, predominately relies on ligaments and muscles to remain in place. This allows us to position and move the hand without the restriction. If the ligaments or muscles are injured do to overuse, repetitive arm rotation or trauma, it can lead to an unstable shoulder, pain or disability.

Upper extremity problems can be the result of overuse, repetitive arm rotation, or traumatic injury. The risk of shoulder and elbow injury increases in athletes who participate in sports such as baseball, football or tennis.

Whether you have sustained an acute injury, have a long-standing problem that has not improved with conservative treatment, or have continued problems after a previous shoulder or elbow surgery, Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic shoulder and elbow surgeons are trained to treat a variety of upper extremity and sports medicine conditions and disorders. Let us help restore your comfort and function to improve your quality of life.
