Elbow & Shoulder
Shoulder and elbow pain is quite common and is caused by many factors, including the fact that we use our arms for so many different activities on a near-constant basis. If left untreated, however, shoulder and elbow pain can progress and cause significant functional problems.
One of the major causes of shoulder pain is arthritis, a condition in which cartilage is worn away and the protective lining between the bones is diminished. This causes painful bone-on-bone friction which, in turn, restricts movement. Other causes of shoulder and elbow pain are injuries that result in strains and fractures.
Here at The Orthopaedic Hand and Arm Center in Miami Lakes and Plantation, FL, board-certified specialist Dr. Tosca Kinchelow has expertise in elbow, shoulder, and upper extremity problems, and uses the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat a wide range of athletic, degenerative, and traumatic disorders, including:
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Radial tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Rotator cuff tears
The treatment (surgical or non-surgical) recommended for elbow and shoulder pain depends on the specific type of condition or injury you have, as well as its extent or severity. The treatments we routinely employ include:
- PRP injections
- Other injections
