Sports medicine experts at the University of Miami Sports Medicine Institute are experienced in treating conditions and injuries of the shoulder. Shoulder problems can result from overuse, trauma, or disease in the joints, ligaments (connect bones together), or tendons (connect muscle to the bones).
Early detection is the key to preventing serious shoulder injuries. Often, exercise aimed at strengthening shoulder muscles is prescribed. Anti-inflammatory medication may also help to reduce pain and swelling. If non-operative treatments have failed to heal the injury, arthroscopic shoulder surgery is usually needed to repair ligaments, tendons, and cartilage and get you back in the game.
