ABOUT SHOULDER PAIN
Your shoulder issues don't need to own your every move.
The shoulder has a wide and versatile range of motion. With that mobility comes a lack of stability, making it more vulnerable to wear and tear, injury and occasional dislocation. Whether your shoulder pain is the result of arthritis, labrum tear, a rotator cuff injury or anything else, Dr. Matti Palo is here to provide expert care that can help you get back doing the things you love.
About your Shoulders
The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint that has three main bones: the humerus (long arm bone), the clavicle (collarbone), and the scapula (also known as the shoulder blade).
These bones are cushioned by a layer of cartilage. The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body. It moves the shoulder forward and backward. It also allows the arm to move in a circular motion and to move up and away from the body.
Shoulders get their range of motion from the rotator cuff. You can injure your shoulder by performing manual labor, playing sports, or even by repetitive movement. Certain diseases can bring about pain that travels to the shoulder. These include diseases of the cervical spine (neck), as well as liver, heart, or gallbladder disease.
