Your provider at Town Center Orthopaedic Associates begins by reviewing your medical and family history and current health. While examining your shoulder, they ask you for details about your pain, how it started, and what makes it worse or better.
Following your exam, you might need diagnostic imaging tests. State-of-the-art X-ray facilities are available onsite for your convenience.
You might also need to undergo a shoulder arthroscopy. This minimally invasive procedure uses a tiny camera on a flexible tube to see inside your shoulder joint. In some cases, your provider can treat the cause of your shoulder pain at the same time.
Once your provider makes a diagnosis, they prepare your personalized treatment program.
