Shoulder & Elbow
Elbow and Shoulder Surgeons in St. Peters & O'Fallon, MO
Because of the wide range of motion and stress placed on the shoulder and elbow joints, pain and injury are common in these areas. And it’s not surprising, considering how often you rely on your shoulders and arms throughout the day.
Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of pain in the shoulder and elbow joints. As arthritis develops, the protective cartilage on the ends of the bones can wear away. Without the protective cartilage lining, the bones of the joints rub against each other, triggering pain. Severe shoulder and elbow arthritis can inhibit movement.
