Some of the common shoulder injuries include impingement, rotator cuff tears, labral tears, bicipital tendonitis, and myofascial pain syndromes. Often times, people experience shoulder pain as a result of muscle imbalances or thoracic/scapular dysfunction. The doctors of the Boise Spine Center treat the majority of shoulder conditions. Full-thickness rotator cuff tears and labral tears often time require surgery, and the doctors work with fantastic shoulder orthopaedists and other sports medicine doctors when referral is needed. The majority of other shoulder conditions require targeted exercises and myofascial release therapy to restore proper shoulder joint motion, all of which are provided at the Boise Spine Center.
The doctors at the Boise Spine Center are trained to treat a wide range of injuries and pain syndromes. They treat injuries of the neck and back as well as the extremities. Acute injuries such as sprains and strains, as well as chronic, degenerative conditions can be effectively treated conservatively at the Boise Spine Center. Some conditions require additional medical treatment, and the doctors at the Boise Spine Center work closely with specialists in all areas of medicine and help patients get to the right provider when a referral is indicated. Additionally, many orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons refer patients to the Boise Spine Center when surgery is not indicated or for post-operative rehabilitation.
