Posted on February 12, 2018

Many people suffer from shoulder pain that if addressed by a physician can be alleviated. Dr. Richard O’Keeffe, Jr. at South Central Orthopaedics says there are many scenarios in which people should see a doctor for their shoulder pain. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatment options. “The shoulder is an interesting joint. It depends a lot on proper balance of the muscles, and many people get into shoulder problems because the muscles have become imbalanced.” Physical therapy and medication can help alleviate shoulder pain. If nonsurgical options are not enough, South Central also offers minimally evasive surgical options.
