Shoulder pain is one of the most common ailments our patients face. Rotator cuff impingement, also known as swimmer’s shoulder, is caused when bony formations in the shoulder blade rub against tendons, causing inflammation and pain.
Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder. Over time, the shoulder becomes very hard to move. Frozen shoulder generally tends to get better over time, but full recovery can take years without the right treatment.
Every year, millions of people see a doctor because of a rotator cuff problem or tear. These injuries can lead to pain and even disability as the shoulder weakens and everyday activities become more painful and difficult.
