DIAGNOSING THE UNDERLYING CAUSE OF YOUR PAIN

  • Bursitis
  • Acute or chronic rotator cuff tendinitis/tendinosis
  • Rotator cuff and biceps tendon tears
  • Labral tears
  • Impingement
  • Instability
  • Arthritis
  • AC joint pain
  • Fractures

When you arrive at the Orthohealing Center for shoulder pain treatment, our first priority will be to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Because there are so many causes of shoulder pain, this is a critical step that will largely influence the effectiveness of our treatment approach. As such, our Los Angeles and New York shoulder specialists take the time necessary to identify the correct diagnosis before your treatment begins – ensuring a more effective, convenient and affordable experience for you.

To begin the diagnosis process, we will collect detailed information about your symptoms and medical history. From there, we will examine your shoulder and perform comprehensive tests to identify what’s causing your pain and joint mobility challenges. Once we’ve identified the underlying cause, we will be able to prescribe very specific treatment approaches that can resolve the issue, relieve your pain and restore your quality of life.

Oftentimes a dynamic diagnostic ultrasound will be performed to identify the cause of pain and document the extent of injury. In cases where labral tears or arthritis is suspected, an MRI or an MR Arthrogram (MRI with injected dye) is promptly obtained
