Shoulder & Arm Pain

Shoulder & Arm Pain

Many individuals who experience shoulder and arm pain think that it is just something that they must grin and bear, but this is not so. Dr. Holmes Marchman leads an expert staff at The Longstreet Clinic’s Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation department in Gainesville, Georgia.  Dr. Marchman and his team specialize in treating patients experiencing musculoskeletal and neurological problems.
           
Shoulder and arm pain can stem from many probable causes, and pain intensity can vary.  Shoulder and arm pain might be caused by injury in an accident or fall, strains from overextension, tendonitis from overuse, shoulder joint instability, dislocation or damage to the network of nerves that carry signals back and forth between the arms and spinal cord. Due to the many causes of shoulder and arm pain, it is important to seek a proper diagnosis. 

Dr. Marchman and his team work diligently to make a proper diagnosis so that they can prescribe and administer treatments that will best remedy the source of the patient’s shoulder and arm pain. There are a number of possible treatments that may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, muscle relaxers or corticosteroid injections.

Shoulder and arm pain can range from fairly minor to severe. Most respond well to treatment, although required treatment time varies with each patient. Shoulder and arm pain can be classified in many different ways, so if you are experiencing either, you should consider making an appointment with Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at The Longstreet Clinic.
