Shoulder Pain & Treatment

Each year, millions of people visit their doctor's office complaining of shoulder pain. Many of these rotator cuff and shoulder injuries are sports-related and affect those that use the shoulder actively. Pain in the shoulder can be managed with the right treatment. 

Most shoulder injuries and associated shoulder pain are caused by the type of repetitive motion you find in swimming, tennis, throwing or weightlifting. However, even common shoulder injuries can be caused by routine daily activities like cleaning, gardening and working.

The orthopedic experts at Denver Health are here to help you identify the problem and treat your shoulder injury so you can get back in the action.
