Orthopedic Care: Shoulder Injuries


We tend to think of the shoulder as one structure, but it's actually made of several joints, tendons and muscles that control the mobility and motion of your arms. If that mobility and motion is compromised, however, any of the working parts and pieces can suffer, resulting in gnawing aches or sharp pains. The discomfort might only occur with movement, or it could stick around indefinitely. Either way, you know that classic pain when you feel it. Shoulder injuries are frequently caused by athletic activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion. Most problems in the shoulder involve the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, rather than the bones.

When Should I Visit a Phoenix Shoulder Specialist?

We recommend making an appointment with one of TOCA's orthopedic experts if your pain doesn't respond to self-care techniques after a few days. You'll also want to consider prompt treatment if the discomfort is accompanied by swelling, tenderness or troubles lifting or moving your arm. Don't suffer through unnecessary aches; schedule a consultation today, and see how TOCA's innovative care strategies can improve your quality of life.
