Relief From Shoulder Pain

Shoulder injuries and chronic shoulder pain can be very debilitating and can make doing basic things like reaching for items on a shelf or lifting bags and purses painful or impossible. Shoulder injuries can make it difficult or impossible to work or play the sports you love. If you’ve experienced any common shoulder symptoms/causes like stiffness, inflammation, swelling or shoulder pain after sleeping, you should set up an appointment for treatment.

Maybe you’ve considered shoulder pain treatment, but you’re worried treatment will require a surgery. You’re worried a shoulder surgery could be invasive or lead to a long recovery period. That’s why the expert physicians at San Antonio Orthopaedic Specialists have developed a unique tissue sparing technique designed specifically to reduce recovery time and to get you back to doing what you love most, faster. On average, our patients spend 1-2 days fewer in observation than they would at a hospital, and recovery time can take less than a week.
