Here at Carle McLean County Orthopedics, we understand that shoulder pain can be a daily battle. There is a wide array of shoulder pain and injuries, and our team of skilled orthopedic
surgeons, occupational therapists, and physical therapists can assist you and help improve your quality of life.

The shoulder is made up of several muscles, joints, and tendons, providing a wide range of motion in the arm and shoulder. Shoulder pain is widespread in America due to constant mobility in the shoulder that can lead to either temporary or consistent pain. Think about all the daily activities that involve shoulder movement, raising your hand, shrugging your shoulders, or scratching your back. Shoulders are continually being moved, causing muscles, joints, and ligaments to be strained daily. There are numerous treatment options for the shoulder pain that our experts at Carle McLean County Orthopedics offer, including occupational therapy, physiotherapy, physical therapy, and personalized rotator cuff exercises. Our Orthopedic surgeons take the time to meet with patients and carefully diagnose what shoulder pain or shoulder injuries may be affecting you. Our doctors have seen it all, including:

  • Rotator cuff tear or injury
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Shoulder arthritis
  • Shoulder sprain
  • Shoulder blade pain
  • Bursitis shoulder
  • A pinched nerve in the shoulder

Shoulder conditions affect people of all ages. For younger people, intense physical labor or sports activities are common ways to cause shoulder sprain, rotator cuff tear, pinched nerve in the shoulder, and, eventually, shoulder tendonitis.
