Can Shoulder Pain Be Treated Without Surgery?

Yes, although it depends on the cause and severity of your pain. For most sufferers, surgery will not be required. Non-invasive shoulder pain treatment options are available to provide pain relief, increase flexibility and strength, and restore shoulder function. Often, shoulder treatment methods are combined to alleviate shoulder pain.

When surgical intervention is necessary, it will typically be to treat a damaged, degenerated, or unhealthy shoulder joint, bone, or muscle, due to aging, disease, injury, or overuse. There are different types of shoulder surgery procedures. These include arthroscopy, arthroplasty, rotator cuff repair, bone fracture/dislocation repair, and bursectomy.
