Upper extremity injuries not only hinder athletic competition and practice, but they truly can slow patients down in their activities of daily living. In most cases, returning to pain free carrying of your child, throwing the ball in the yard, or cooking dinner for the family can be just as important to our patients. With that said, returning to full function is our goal at LBJO. We enjoy the challenge of treating shoulder injuries for everyone, from our high-level athlete and weekend warrior, to the grandparents that want to stay active.
