Shoulder Injury Treatments
If you're having shoulder pain, it is often due to an injury of the rotator cuff tendons that drive the arm up and down and make your arm work. When the tendons are torn, they pull away from the bone. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, Dr. Kevin Stone is able to fix this injury by pulling the tendons back and anchoring them into place. It is done as an arthroscopic outpatient procedure. It's best to repair this injury as early as you can to save yourself from developing arthritis. Set up a complimentary phone consult to find out if this procedure will work for you.
If you've dislocated your shoulder, it means it came right out of the joint, tearing the ligaments at the front of the shoulder. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, http://www.stoneclinic.com we can repair these shoulder ligaments as an out patient procedure and you can prevent this from happening again.
Collarbone (clavicle) fractures are painful and often don't heal well. When they're significantly displaced, it's better to fix them. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, http://www.stoneclinic.com we no longer need to use plates and screws and open incisions to do this. We are able to do a percutaneous repair through a very small incision.
If you've dislocated your AC joint, most commonly from football or falling off your bicycle, the clavicle is often sticking right up. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, http://www.stoneclinic.com Dr. Kevin Stone is able to fix this injury, both acutely and later on chronically by taking a new ligament and rebuilding the joint.
Taping treatment for AC joint injuries
If you've got a stiff or injured joint, one of the things you can do is to lubricate the joint. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, http://www.stoneclinic.com Dr. Kevin Stone is able to loosen the joint by injecting hyaluronic acid, the natural lubricant of the joint. Sometimes it's done with growth factors and sometimes just as the joint lubricant.
Our biceps is our “Popeye” muscle, long associated with strength and vitality. But when the tendon of the biceps becomes painful and inflamed, drastic measures like surgical excision are often the treatment of choice. That should change—and it will.
