Shoulder Surgeon in Austin, TX
A shoulder injury can happen during sports such as tennis, baseball, or swimming, or during heavy overhead lifting. You may experience reduced shoulder strength, pain, and limited movement in your shoulder joint when it becomes inflamed. Many shoulder conditions are caused by ligament, tendon, or cartilage problems. Shoulder bursitis and rotator cuff injuries are among the most common shoulder conditions.
If the pain is keeping you up at night and getting worse over time, you should seek the medical attention of an orthopedic shoulder specialist, like Dr. John McDonald. He can treat a wide range of shoulder injuries and conditions such as:
