About Shoulder Pain
A network of orthopedic shoulder specialists
If your shoulder hurts when you reach for something, throw a ball, or after repetitive movements, talk to our orthopedic shoulder specialist. We provide thorough evaluations to help find the cause of your pain. We deliver personalized treatment options for shoulder-related disorders and injuries. Our doctors and care teams listen to understand you and your shoulder pain. Then, we work with you to create a care plan that’s right for you.
Treatments for shoulder weakness and pain
Your shoulder has three different joints, so your arm can move in many directions. When there is damage to the shoulder, the muscles in your upper body and your arm may also be affected. Older adults are more prone to shoulder injuries from falling. Sports-related injuries from overuse or impact can affect the shoulder and arm. Our doctors and orthopedic care teams offer treatments for shoulder pain, rotator cuff damage, muscle and ligament strain, joint impingement, shoulder dislocation, and bone fracture, including:
- Arthroscopic shoulder surgery, rotator cuff repair
- Shoulder replacement surgery
- Medication therapy
- Non-surgical injections
- Rehabilitation and recovery
- Exercise physiology and sports performance
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911.
Doctors specializing in shoulder replacement surgery and rotator cuff repair
Age, arthritis and injury are all possible reasons for shoulder pain. If you are living with pain, our experienced orthopedic surgery specialists and care teams take the time to understand you and your joint pain. At many Ascension orthopedic sites of care, we offer certified joint replacement surgery with rehabilitation and recovery programs. Our orthopedic surgeons also specialize in arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.
Getting the right care at the right time is critical for your health. If you’re looking for a second opinion from a shoulder specialist, we can help match you with the right orthopedic surgeon. Ask if a virtual visit is an option for your second opinion appointment.

After your shoulder surgery, our care team provides therapy to help you recover, regain strength and increase your range of motion.
