Treating Shoulder Conditions Efficiently
Your shoulder is designed to help you swing, lift, push, and press. An injury or other condition in this area can limit movement throughout your upper body, induce pain, and decrease your quality of life. Dr. Cobb also uses minimally invasive technique to treat many shoulder problems such as bursitis, impingement, tendon tears, rotator cuff injuries, and fractures. He can help to reduce or eliminate pain and get you back to work, life, and your favorite off-hours activities faster and with better results.
Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
Rotator Cuff Tears (Partial or Complete)
Shoulder Instability and Fractures
Shoulder instability is essentially a loose shoulder joint caused by dislocation or complete separation that overstretches and damages surrounding tendons and ligaments. Symptoms include feeling like it may easily slip out of place, quick bursts of shoulder pain, history of previous shoulder injury, numbness on the outside of the arm, swelling or bruising around the shoulder, or visible abnormalities. Mild cases may be treated by splinting, resting, utilizing stretching or strengthening exercises, avoiding certain activities, anti-inflammatory medications, or corticosteroid injections. If the instability is more severe, minimally-invasive arthroscopic shoulder instability repair may be required. Small incisions are made and the damaged tendons are ligaments are reattached to help stabilize the joint. This procedure provides patients with a faster recovery than typical surgery.
