Orthopedic Treatments for Shoulder Pain

Whether you’re pushing, pulling or lifting things over your head, your shoulder is a key player in physical activity. Pain in this joint, which has the greatest range of motion of all the joints in your body, can be caused by injuries, overuse or changes that happen as we age. Given the complexities of the shoulder, skilled care is vital. Let our team of specialists provide a quick diagnosis and customized treatment plan to help you feel better, faster.

Request an Appointment

Because of its larger range of motion and complexity, the shoulder joint is particularly prone to injury from sports, overuse or long-term degeneration. But you don’t have to let shoulder pain keep you from enjoying your life.

Our surgeons work with in-house physical therapists specializing in shoulder pain to develop customized treatment plans designed to speed your recovery. Whether you require surgery, non-invasive treatments or a unique combination to treat your condition, we work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.

When to See a Doctor for Shoulder Pain

Our Forté Fast Orthopedic Care locations are open regularly for walk-in appointments in cases of sports or other sudden injuries that don’t show signs of immediate emergency. If you have lingering or chronic pain from an injury or condition, please call our office to speak to a trained triage specialist who can help you make an appointment with the right specialist at a convenient Forté location.

Individualized Treatment Plans

At Forté, our orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists are specialists, and we believe in customizing treatment plans for each patient.

Based on the latest research, surgical techniques and advances in therapy, our team works with you to build a plan targeted to your diagnosis, age, activity level, and goals.

Our unusually high coordination of care means that your doctor and therapist collaborate on your treatment, helping you recover faster and see better overall outcomes.
