When Should You See A Doctor For Shoulder Pain?
It’s amazing just how much our shoulders do for us day in and day out, from carrying heavy grocery bags to whacking a tennis ball. Unfortunately, everything from injuries to diseases to repetitive movements can lead to shoulder pain, stiffness and other problems that can affect your daily activities. If you are having issues with your shoulder, whether it’s pain and swelling or limited mobility, our orthopaedic shoulder specialist Dr. Roger Pollock is here to help.
Are you experiencing any of these shoulder symptoms?
- Limited mobility
- Loss of flexibility
If so, then this is the perfect time to visit a shoulder specialist who will be able to diagnose the issue and create a treatment plan that will eliminate your symptoms and get you on the road to recovery. Shoulder problems can happen to anyone, from athletes to construction workers, and it’s important that you get the care you deserve to alleviate your symptoms as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Our orthopaedic shoulder specialist Dr. Pollock handles a wide range of shoulder issues such as:
- Joint stiffness
- Labral tears
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Shoulder dislocations
- Arthritis of the shoulder
- Pinched nerves
- Frozen shoulder
We also work with patients of all ages, from children to senior citizens, to provide comprehensive shoulder treatments when you need it most. When you come in for an evaluation, we will go through your detailed medical history, as well as ask you specific questions regarding the symptoms and problems you are experiencing. From there, we will perform a physical examination of the shoulder. Sometimes imaging tests such as x-rays will need to be conducted in order to figure out what’s going on.
Once these tests are complete, we can provide you with a diagnosis and from there create a customized treatment plan to fit your needs and speed up the healing process. Treatment options will range from simple at-home care options and prescription medications to rehabilitation and even endoscopic surgery, based on the type and severity of your shoulder condition.
