Shoulder Problems: Robert J. Nowinski, D.O, FAOAO


We see a wide variety of orthopedic shoulder problems at OrthoNeuro. Younger athletes are typically more prone towards traumatic injuries, dislocations, and fractures, and the dislocations can occur in either the ball and socket joint or the end of the collarbone joint.

We typically will see tears of the labrum, which is the lining of the shoulder joint in younger athletes. And then we range through the middle age weekend warrior athletes that have the more overuse type injuries of their shoulder. These involve tendonitis, bursitis, sprains, strains, and these eventually will lead to degenerative conditions of the shoulder degenerative rotator cuff tears, and arthritis of the ball and socket joint.

The rotator cuff tears that we see and the arthritis of the shoulder joint typically will require surgical intervention. For the rotator cuff tears that will require a repair for the shoulder arthritis that will involve a shoulder replacement.
