Shoulder & Elbow Conditions
and Injuries

The physicians at East Ohio Orthopaedics provide comprehensive evaluation, management and treatment for a wide range of shoulder and elbow problems, including, but not limited to:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendinitis) or tendon tear
  • Instability
  • Fracture (broken bone)
  • Tennis elbow (elbow pain)
  • Throwing injuries
  • Dislocation
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Osteoarthritis

Your doctor will conduct a thorough evaluation in order to determine the cause of your shoulder or elbow pain and provide you with treatment options. The evaluation will begin with a thorough medical history, followed by a physical examination in which the doctor will look for physical abnormalities, swelling, deformity or muscle weakness, and check for tender areas.

Specific tests or procedures may also be ordered to help identify the cause of your pain. These may include:

  • X-rays
  • MRI and Ultrasound
  • CT Scan
  • EMG
  • Arthrogram
  • Arthroscopy

Treatment typically involves activity changes, and may include medication and/or surgery, depending on the diagnosis and severity of your problem.
