Shoulder Tendinopathy Treatment
The orthopedic surgeons and shoulder specialists at OrthoNeuro provide expert treatment options for shoulder problems.
They offer compassionate and innovative patient care to address your specific needs. Treatments can be categorized into nonsurgical and surgical treatments.
In nearly all cases, the initial treatment is nonsurgical. It may include the following.
In some cases, the RICE method is all that’s needed to repair your shoulder. RICE stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
Many minor shoulder problems end up worsening when patients don’t allow enough time to rest and recover.
The surgeons at OrthoNeuro incorporate physical therapy into shoulder treatment programs when it is needed.
Specific strengthening exercises and stretching can help restore range of motion and strengthen your shoulder, including the rotator cuff muscles.
In some cases, physical therapy can be combined with other nonsurgical treatments. For example, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen reduce pain and swelling.
