Shoulder arthritis

Shoulder arthritis is a degenerative joint condition that leads to the breakdown of cartilage in the shoulder joint. This can cause:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Limited range of motion

At HSA, we offer non-surgical approaches such as physical therapy, medications, joint injections, and surgical interventions like joint replacement or joint fusion when conservative measures no longer provide relief.

Shoulder dislocation

A shoulder dislocation occurs when the ball-shaped end of the upper arm bone (humerus) pops out of the shoulder socket. This can cause severe pain, instability, and limited shoulder movement. Our skilled specialists can provide the following:

  • Prompt evaluation
  • Treatment options, including closed reduction techniques to relocate the dislocated joint
  • Appropriate rehabilitation strategies to restore stability and prevent future dislocations

Shoulder impingement

Shoulder impingement occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff become compressed or irritated as they pass through the narrow space between the top of the shoulder blade (acromion) and the upper arm bone (humerus). The injury can result in pain, weakness, and limited shoulder function. At HSA, we offer comprehensive treatment options for shoulder impingement, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • In some cases, surgical interventions to relieve pressure on the affected tendons and restore proper shoulder mechanics

Shoulder fractures

Shoulder fractures can occur in the following areas:

  • Collarbone (clavicle)
  • Upper arm bone (humerus)
  • Shoulder blade (scapula)

Fractures can result from trauma, falls, or sports-related injuries and can cause significant pain, swelling, and limited shoulder mobility. Our experienced specialists are skilled in managing shoulder fractures and provide personalized treatment plans, which may include the following:

  • Immobilization
  • Surgical fixation
  • Rehabilitation programs to promote proper healing and restore shoulder function

Other conditions

We’re proud to treat the spectrum of shoulder injuries, which also include the following:

Rotator cuff tear

The rotator cuff is the group of tendons in the shoulder joint providing support for a range of motion. Significant injury to these tendons may result in a tear of these tendons, called a rotator cuff tear.

Frozen shoulder

A frozen shoulder is the condition of a painful shoulder limiting movements due to pain and inflammation. It is also called adhesive capsulitis and may progress to the state where an individual may struggle to move the shoulder.

Shoulder instability

Shoulder instability is a chronic condition that causes frequent shoulder joint dislocation. A dislocation occurs when the end of the humerus (the ball portion) partially or completely dislocates from the shoulder's glenoid (the socket portion). A partial dislocation is called subluxation, whereas a complete separation is called a dislocation.
