Shoulder and Elbow Care
Grabbing a box from a high shelf, rocking a baby in your arms, pulling an oar through water — the shoulders and elbows allow for controlled and stable arm movements. Athletes such as swimmers, pitchers, tennis players, and other individuals are more likely to experience problems with their shoulders and elbows. Our team at Marin Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has seen countless shoulder injuries. Whether you experience a pinched nerve, torn tendon, or full dislocation, our team can help you find a solution.
Repetitive overhead movements, such as swimming, throwing, or working in certain positions, are some of the most common causes of shoulder injuries.
