The shoulder is one of the most used joints in the body. It is also the most flexible. But this flexibility also makes it vulnerable to injury due to repetitive motion and trauma. The most common shoulder injuries include rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability, labral tears and clavicle fractures among others.
The treatments for shoulder conditions depend upon the cause and severity of shoulder pain. If you are suffering from a severely painful condition, you may need surgical shoulder treatments from an experienced surgeon, such as Dr. Farber in Phoenix. Surgical shoulder treatments may include minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery as well as open surgery.
Minimally invasive surgery or arthroscopic surgery offers several advantages over traditional surgery, such as smaller incisions, less trauma to soft tissues, fewer risks, less post-operative pain and faster recovery.
