Shoulder Care

At Northern Arizona Orthopaedics, our team of specially trained physicians can personalize a care plan that includes surgical or non-surgical treatment options for you.

What most people call the shoulder is really several joints that combine with tendons and muscles to allow a wide range of motion in the arm — from scratching your back to throwing the perfect pitch. Injuries or arthritis in the shoulder can quickly cause problems with function and mobility in day-to-day activities.

Increased problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structures in your shoulder may result in an increase in pain. You may feel pain only when you move your shoulder or all of the time. The pain may be temporary, or it may continue and require medical diagnosis and treatment.

Treatment Options

Soaring Again Following Hand Surgery

Barely more than one month after the team at Northern Arizona Orthopaedics performed bilateral carpal tunnel surgery on me, I took the first pain-free flight I have had in about three decades. If you must hang glide, it is so nice to know your hands work 100 percent! Thank you, you have changed my life. – J.O., Prescott Valley clinic patient
