Shoulder Pain

Dr. Scott Dixon has seen his share of shoulder injuries. All the way from children to moms and professional athletes to youth sports he knows how vital it is to have the right care in order to assist his patients in getting their physical health back in order. Although it’s vital for a physician to analyze a patient in order to find out what treatment may be the most effective depending on the condition, we always will treat our patients as individuals making sure we examine all possibilities to get to the root cause of their issues. Some issues are easier to diagnose then others. The top reasons for shoulder problems we have seen are:

  • Arthritis
  • Injuries or accidents
  • Work Stress
  • Sports injuries
  • Dislocation or separation issues
  • Cartilage or joint issues
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractures or broken bones
  • Past health issues or injuries
  • Age
  • Poor nutrition/diet

Each problem causing shoulder pain can lead to a variety of ways to treat the condition. Our first goal is to find out what’s causing the issue and make sure we know the root cause. Is it acute (more recent for excessive use) or chronic (degenerative issues such as wear and tear due to age or arthritis that can end up becoming chronic tendinitis)? We want you feeling better. We want you to heal. With our in-house physical therapy services we feel like we have a solid arsenal of tools to get you back in the swing of things and feeling much better.
