Every time you reach for your cup of coffee or lift up your precious child or pet, you use your shoulders. You probably don’t think about them too much, but your shoulders are the joints with the broadest range of motion in your whole body. They help you do just about everything. That’s why when something is wrong, and your shoulders are in pain or not working correctly, you notice it right away. At Premier Bone & Joint Centers, our shoulder specialists are ready to diagnose your shoulder issue and set you on the path to recovery. And we’re only a short drive away from Green River over in Rock Springs!
Minimally Invasive Treatment
When you arrive at any of our satellite clinics, a doctor will look over your history first. Then, with a thorough examination of your shoulders, they will diagnose your injury or condition. If needed, they may order X-rays or an MRI to get a closer look. Then, the shoulder specialist will create a treatment plan for you.
Whenever possible, our shoulder specialists look for non-invasive treatment options first. This could include icing, compression, behavior modification, over-the-counter medications, or physical therapy. Sometimes that’s not enough, or the condition is more severe, and surgery is required. In that case, our orthopedic surgeons are trained to use the most modern techniques and equipment to perform your surgery expertly.
Shoulder Conditions We Treat
It’s very common to have stiff or even sore shoulders. Depending on what you do for most of your day, your shoulders may collect a lot of tension. If you notice that the stiffness or soreness won’t go away or that you have a reduced range of motion, it’s time to seek help. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained shoulder physicians can diagnose and treat a wide variety of shoulder conditions, including:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Compressed nerves
- Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Separation
Your shoulders are far too important to take for granted. If you’re experiencing shoulder pain, numbness, or stiffness, let the shoulder doctors at Premier Bone & Joint Center near Green River, WY, get you moving and living pain-free again. We provide care worthy of Wyoming!
