About the Shoulder
The shoulder is the most mobile and flexible joint in the body, making it more susceptible to injury. The shoulder is a "ball-and-socket" joint, but unlike the hip, the shoulder is less stable. The shoulder joint is surrounded by a delicate arrangement of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves working together. Shoulder pain can occur from one traumatic event, overuse, or under use. Damage or injury most often involve the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, resulting in limited movement, pain, weakness, and stiffness.
Our physicians, Dr. Matthew Griffith and Dr. David Goodwin, bring over 30 years of combined experience treating shoulder pain and injuries. To ensure a quicker recovery time, the physicians at Arthritis & Sports use the latest arthroscopic techniques to treat shoulder conditions.
