The shoulder has the largest range of motion of any joint in the body. We need this freedom of motion to interact with world and manipulate our environment. When our shoulders aren’t working properly due to pain or injury, activities of daily life such as getting dressed, eating – even sleeping become difficult if not impossible. At Edmonds Orthopedic Center, our board-certified, fellowship-trained Orthopedic Shoulder and Sports Medicine Surgeons are there to help you recover as quickly as possible.

The shoulder is a complex joint, made up of no fewer than 4 separate articulations. The main joint is a ball-in-socket joint connecting your upper arm bone (humerus) to a part your shoulder blade called the glenoid. The shoulder blade also forms a type of joint with your ribs. Last, the collarbone (clavicle) has a small joint at either end, meeting your shoulder blade laterally and your sternum centrally. These structures work together, along with the surrounding soft tissues (muscles, labrum and ligaments) to provide the strength, function and wide range of motion the shoulder requires. Unfortunately, highly mobile joints can be prone to injury.

Some of the ways our shoulder specialists at Edmonds Orthopedic Center can help you get better include:

  • Non-surgical measures such as injections, medications and exercise programs which can be useful adjuncts to manage symptoms and facilitate your return to health.
  • Physical Therapy can also be an extremely powerful tool in rehabilitating the troublesome shoulder, often making surgery unnecessary. Concept Therapy and Edmonds Orthopedic Therapy offer convenient locations and compassionate, well-trained staff to help you navigate your road to recovery.
  • If surgery becomes necessary, all of our shoulder specialists are experts in the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques, to help minimize your discomfort and down time postoperatively.

Whether we are treating common conditions such as tendinitis, bursitis, over-use injuries, sports-related strains and sprains and arthritis or more complex injuries resulting in broken bones, muscle tears or dislocations, our focus is on working with you to develop the most effective, individualized treatment program based on your unique situation. What sets Edmonds Orthopedic Center apart is your one-on-one relationship with your doctor. We think this makes for better communication and better outcomes.

If shoulder pain is interfering with your life, don’t shrug it off. Contact one of our Orthopedic Shoulder and Sports Medicine specialists at Edmonds Orthopedic Center to learn more about how we can help.
