Shoulder Education

What do you want most from a shoulder specialist? The most advanced treatment? Quality care? Optimal results? When you entrust your shoulder to the fellowship-trained shoulder specialists at Methodist Sports Medicine you can expect all three.

Your first step when you suffer from persistent shoulder pain or instability, or have had a traumatic injury, is to come into one of our offices for an evaluation. Fortunately, most shoulder injuries can be treated without surgery. Common treatments include physical therapy, exercises, oral medications, injections and bracing.

Rotator cuff tendon tears, recurrent shoulder dislocations, labral tears and shoulder arthritis are conditions that more often require surgery. If that’s the case with your shoulder injury, we offer you the latest procedures, including advanced arthroscopic techniques and sophisticated software and hardware to monitor outcomes and improve care.
