Shoulder

Orthopedic Specialties

Our specialty-trained shoulder doctors at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder injuries and conditions.

As the most versatile joint in the human body, our shoulder joint provides us with a tremendous amount of flexibility.

In most cases, pain in the shoulder can be the result of one of four main causes: inflammation, instability, arthritis, or a fracture. However, this range of motion can lead to shoulder pain or discomfort.

Symptoms of a possible shoulder condition or injury include:

  • Pain and stiffness in or around the shoulder joint
  • Limited shoulder mobility
  • Difficulty and/or inability to reach overhead
  • Shoulder joint pain that keeps you awake at night
  • A popping or grinding feeling when using the afflicted shoulder

Whether you’re suffering from a recent injury, such as a rotator cuff tear or shoulder dislocation, or the pain in your shoulder has developed over time from shoulder tendonitis or bursitis, our shoulder doctors at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine understand your desire for pain relief.

To consult with one of our shoulder doctors, please call (910) 484-2171.
