Shoulder & Elbow

Many consider the shoulder to be the most complicated joint in the body. It becomes a common source of pain through repetitive motions from sports, work and life’s other activities. Because of the delicate balance between soft tissue tension and stability, even a small disruption of the shoulder can lead to limited range of motion. The elbow, in turn, connects the upper and lower arm through a system of muscles, ligaments, and tendons — all complex parts deserving specialized knowledge, attention and care.
