Shoulder pain is very common, which is not surprising since you use your shoulders for so many common tasks throughout the day.
There are a number of causes for shoulder pain, including arthritis, trauma, injury, sprains and strains, sports injuries and fractures.
Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of pain in the shoulder joint. As arthritis develops, the protective cartilage on the ends of the bones in a joint can wear away. Without the protective cartilage lining, the bones of the joints rub against each other, which is a major source of pain. Severe shoulder arthritis can also inhibit movement.
At Green Mountain Orthopaedic Surgery, our fellowship-trained surgeons treat a broad range of athletic, degenerative and traumatic shoulder disorders, and they employ the latest in non-surgical and surgical techniques to diagnose and treat these problems, including shoulder arthroscopy
and rotator cuff repair.
