Non-Surgical Treatment

Many shoulder problems may be treatable without surgery. The surgeons at Hinsdale Orthopaedics maintain a philosophy that surgery should be reserved as a last resort when all other measures have proven unsuccessful in returning patients to an active lifestyle. Fortunately, there are several nonsurgical treatment options to help reduce shoulder pain such as exercise, physical therapy, and Cortisone treatments.
