Shoulder Conditions & Treatments Poulsbo

Every single day, the shoulder is used thousands of times for simple things waving at a friend, petting your dog, or eating a bagel. Since it sees so much daily use, the shoulder can fall victim to shoulder pain or conditions.

The shoulder is an immensely complex system of ligaments and joints connecting your arm to your torso. It is a ball-and-socket joint with not one, but actually two joints that allow the arm free movement. This system’s complicated nature makes shoulder and neck pain very common.

If you notice any pain in your shoulder or neck, please do not hesitate to contact us at the OPA Ortho clinic in Poulsbo today.

Shoulder Conditions

In addition to pain or soreness in the shoulder, neck pain can also be indicative of a shoulder condition. 

Some common conditions causing neck or shoulder pain include:

  • Shoulder dislocation caused by an accident or injury
  • Shoulder separation caused by direct injury to the shoulder
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome — caused by abnormal movement of the arm
  • Shoulder arthritis caused by overuse or age
  • Rotator cuff tears caused by age, overuse, or injury
  • Labral tears caused by fractured or dislocated shoulder or general overuse
  • Biceps tendon rupture caused by recurring strain or injury
  • Bursitis and tendonitis caused by bad posture and strenuous overuse 
  • Midshaft humerus fracture caused by a direct injury to the upper arm or fall

Once you contact OPA Ortho, our expert team will promptly examine your individual situation and provide the best subsequent care.
