Shoulder & Elbow

illustration of a shoulderThe shoulder is the most complex and unstable joint in the body and is easy to injure. The elbow is also a complex joint and is not without its issues. Elbow injuries are most common among adults and children.

Serious injuries, such as fractures (a bone break) and dislocations, often plague these joints and can lead to bone damage of the shoulder or elbow and surrounding structures and impair blood vessel and nerve function. Early recognition and treatment of shoulder and elbow injuries and conditions can reduce your chance of later complications and loss of function.
