Shoulder Conditions & Treatments

Offering Orange County High Quality Shoulder Care

Shoulder joints allow us to bend, flex, reach, and rotate our arms. Excessive and repetitive overhead movements, commonly associated with sports and workplace environments, can stress the shoulder joints causing injury. Common shoulder injuries are related to tendon and muscle tears, shoulder instability, fractures, arthritis, dislocations and other conditions that impede movement.

The Orange County shoulder doctors at Newport Orthopedic Institute specialize in relieving shoulder pain and getting you back in motion. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments are considered in order to get your shoulder moving freely, ease your pain and get you back to the activities you love.

doctor helping senior patient How do I know if shoulder surgery is right for me?

At Newport Orthopedic Institute our focus is always on you. Our physicians offer holistic, customized care that takes all treatment options into consideration — from non-surgical to the most advanced and minimally invasive surgical treatments.

When conservative (non-surgical) treatments such as medication and physical therapy no longer help to alleviate pain, it may be time to consider undergoing shoulder surgery if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • Aching in the joint, followed by periods of relative relief
  • Pain after extensive use
  • Loss of motion
  • Joint stiffness after periods of inactivity or rest
  • Pain that seems to increase in humid weather
