What Treatments are Available for Shoulder Impingement in Reno, NV?Shoulder Impingement Reno NV

Shoulder impingement, also called swimmer’s shoulder, is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain, especially in active people. If you feel constant pain and symptoms in your shoulder, you should contact an orthopedic doctor to determine the best method of treatment. If left untreated for too long, shoulder impingement could reduce your ability to enjoy your hobbies and even complete your daily activities. At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic in Reno, Nevada, we have skilled orthopedic doctors experienced in relieving the chronic pain of a pinched nerve in the shoulder.
The first step to determining if you have shoulder impingement is to undergo a physical examination. Your doctor will begin by asking you a series of questions about your pain and symptoms, as well as your lifestyle and medical history, to determine what might have caused this condition to develop. Then he or she will perform a physical evaluation to monitor the severity of your pain. You may be asked to rotate your shoulder and perform different movements so your doctor can determine if your pain is affecting your flexibility. In some cases, an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan may be required to allow your doctor to see exactly what is causing your shoulder impingement.
Once your diagnosis has been confirmed, you can begin to discuss the treatment options available to you in Reno, NV. Your doctor will likely recommend one or more of the following conservative treatments to help ease the pain of shoulder impingement:

  • Pain medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Stretching
  • Low-impact exercises
  • Corticosteroid injections

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we can create a personalized treatment plan to help you find relief from shoulder impingement syndrome. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of the orthopedic specialists at our clinic in Reno, NV.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.
