Shoulder Care

Shoulder pain can affect daily activities and limit your ability to work, play and sleep. Injuries to the shoulder are frequently caused by athletic activities that involve excessive, repetitive overhead motion but can also occur during everyday activities such washing walls, hanging curtains and gardening.

The orthopedic specialists at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare are experts at treating both common and complex conditions of the shoulder.

Shoulder Conditions We Treat
