Shoulder & Elbow
In Austin, Texas, All-Star Orthopedics handles all types of shoulder problems including sports injuries, work injuries, arthritis, bursitis, and more. Some of the most common conditions we see and treat include:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Labral tear of the shoulder
- Shoulder impingement
- Frozen shoulder
- Shoulder/elbow bursitis or tendonitis
- Shoulder instability
- Sports injuries to the shoulder and elbow
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Little League syndrome (pitcher’s elbow)
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
Rehabilitating the shoulder can be difficult. It often requires wearing a sling to take all the pressure off the joint. The best thing you can do is seek medical attention for shoulder or elbow concerns right away. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to correct.
When surgery is needed to repair damage to joints, ligaments, tendons, or muscles, arthroscopy is often the best treatment option. The surgery requires only a few tiny incisions, and you’re able to start rehabilitation within days. Our surgeon performs an all-arthroscopic repair for rotator cuff and labral tears.
If major joint damage has occurred, your surgeon may have to perform a total joint reconstruction. This is a more complex surgery that will require an extended recovery and healing period.
Regardless of your shoulder or elbow injury, the orthopedic doctor at All-Star Orthopedics can help you get better. Don’t ignore the pain or try to work through it – you might cause further damage. Call All-Star Orthopedics in Austin at (512) 346-4933 for an appointment or request one online.
