Shoulder Pain Treatment

The shoulder is a complex joint, which is able to pivot your arm and give incredible mobility. The rotator cuff, joint, muscles, ligaments and nerves that contribute to the shoulder can all be damaged by injury, wear/tear and degenerative disease. When you suffer from shoulder discomfort or dysfunction, it can impact your arm and hand movement. When you need effective shoulder pain treatment, visit our experienced medical team at Ospina Medical in New York City.

Causes of Shoulder Pain

Tendon tears that cause rotator cuff problems are a common source of shoulder pain. Other possible causes of pain can include shoulder arthritis, pinched nerves, bursitis, ligament problems, bone spurs or joint injuries. Shoulder pain can be caused by overuse or injury, or it may be from limited use after an arm or hand injury (frozen shoulder). Our physicians use advanced medical imaging and diagnostic tools to identify the source of shoulder pain and create a treatment plan to reduce pain and improve function.

Treatment options for shoulder pain depend on the source of pain. Conservative treatments can include rest, cold/heat therapy, massage, physical therapy and OTC anti-inflammatory medications. When home treatments are not effective, our pain specialists can determine a more comprehensive shoulder pain treatment plan. This could include steroid injections to reduce inflammation, which are carefully image-guided for accurate placement. We also offer interventional orthopedic options that may be helpful in healing injuries or slowing degenerative conditions, like arthritis. We offer many treatments that are non-invasive and require little to no downtime after your procedure.

If you suffer from shoulder pain or limited shoulder joint mobility, contact Ospina Medical to schedule an appointment for an exam and consultation to discuss the best options for relieving your shoulder discomfort. We offer shoulder pain treatment at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan, with personalized treatments based on customized assessments.
