Shoulder and elbow joints allow us to bend, flex, reach, and rotate our arms. However, repetitive overhead movements that are common to some sports and jobs frequently overstress the elbow and shoulder joints, resulting in injury. When problems related to tendon tears, instability, fractures, arthritis, and other conditions impede movement, both surgical and non-surgical treatments are considered to ease pain and help restore movement.
