Shoulder Treatment

You’ve heard the expression “carrying the world on your shoulders.” While this may be a bit of an exaggeration, it’s true that your shoulders bear the brunt of a lot of weight throughout your day. These complex structures have the strength and flexibility to help you throw, lift, and more, but this amount of activity also makes them vulnerable to debilitating injuries and conditions.

Whether you’re looking for non-surgical SLAP tear treatment or you’re considering treatment from one of the best shoulder surgeons in the area, Dr. de Campos has the expertise to help you find relief.

Surgical & Non-Surgical Solutions for Shoulder Pain

As one of the top shoulder orthopaedic surgeons in the Pensacola area, Dr. de Campos is always looking to the cutting-edge, seeking to provide the least invasive solutions available to those struggling with shoulder pain. Dr. de Campos frequently offers both surgical and non-surgical solutions, working with every patient as an individual to determine which course of action will work best for them.

Some of the non-invasive solutions to shoulder pain Dr. de Campos provides in her office include:

  • Injection of steroids into the shoulder joint
  • Steroid injections into the acromioclavicular joint, bursa and biceps tendons
  • Trigger point injections
  • Evaluations of shoulder joint fractures (proximal humerus fractures)
  • Treatment for simple or minimally displaced fractures
  • Ultrasound diagnostics, available at an extra charge

For some patients, however, shoulder surgery is the best option in order to ensure their full, long-term recovery. Dr. de Campos employs minimally-invasive methods such as arthroscopy -- the insertion of a tiny camera in a small surgical incision instead of opening the body in full -- to make her patients’ recoveries as pain-free, quick, and cost-effective as possible.

Some of the most common shoulder procedures Dr. de Campos performs include:

  • Arthroscopic shoulder surgery, including arthroscopic rotator cuff, biceps and spur surgery
  • Rotator cuff repair surgery
  • Tommy John surgery
  • Reconstruction of rotator cuff
  • Subacromial decompression or acromioplasty, removal of spurs
  • Coracoid decompression or coracoplasty
  • Repair of subscapularis, infraspinatus and subscapularis
  • Shoulder impingement surgery
  • Treatment for biceps tenodesis or tenotomy
  • Calcific tendinitis and calcium deposit removal
  • Labrum tear surgery
  • Shoulder dislocation repair or reconstruction including anterior, posterior or superior labrum 
  • Acromioclavicular surgery, including distal clavicle excision/removal of spurs
  • Reconstruction of acromioclavicular joint for shoulder separations
  • Shoulder debridement
  • Removal of loose bodies, including synovial chondromatosis
  • Clavicle fracture open treatment and internal fixation
  • Treatment of frozen and stiff shoulder, including manipulation under anesthesia and arthroscopic lysis of adhesions

In certain circumstances, Dr. de Campos can even redo and correct previously performed shoulder arthroscopic procedures that have not successfully provided you with the relief you’re looking for.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are my risk factors for shoulder injury?

Shoulder injuries are commonly found in patients who:

  • Play sports such as baseball, football, or wrestling
  • Have previously injured a shoulder
  • Have high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Are over the age of 40

If these risk factors sound familiar to you, and you’re experiencing shoulder pain, it may be time to consult an orthopaedic specialist like Dr. de Campos.

How long will my shoulder injury recovery period take?

Every patient is unique, and your recovery time will depend on the nature of your injury, the severity of your injury, and individual factors regarding your medical history, fitness level, and personal recovery goals. Dr. de Campos will communicate with you candidly throughout your treatment process.

Will I need physical therapy following my shoulder treatment?

Yes! Physical therapy is an essential element of a full recovery from any orthopaedic injury, and shoulder injuries are no exception. You will likely need physical therapy to fully recover your strength, mobility, and flexibility, even if you opt for non-surgical treatment. This is especially true if you are an athlete whose goal is to return to peak performance in your sport of choice.
