Your shoulders are the most mobile joints in your entire body. But they are also most susceptible to many types of injuries and conditions, including:
- Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
- Broken arm or collarbone

- Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
- Shoulder instability
- Sprains and strains
- Rotator cuff tear

These conditions can cause you pain that varies from mild to severe and debilitating. Shoulder injuries are particularly common among overhead throwing athletes such as baseball, football and volleyball players. Dr. Hannon is particularly interested in helping people overcome shoulder injuries so they can return to full function and athletic performance.
There are many treatments for shoulder pain and shoulder injuries. Conservative and nonsurgical treatments may include medications for pain, physical therapy, therapeutic exercise, rest, massage therapy, ice, heat and kinesiotaping, among others. In cases where the shoulder joint has been damaged beyond repair, Dr. Hannon may recommend minimally invasive shoulder arthroscopy or total shoulder replacement.
