Diagnosis

    After a careful review of the history, physical exam and radiologic tests, it is time to make a diagnosis and treatment plan. Occasionally, there may be more than one diagnosis. There may be shoulder joint instability and rotator cuff tendinitis. Occasional a frozen shoulder is present with a rotator cuff tear. Neck problems such as a pinched nerve may co-exist with separate shoulder pathology. In these instances, the experience of the physician is critical to determine the appropriate treatment. Failure to look at the big picture may result in a less than ideal result.

 

    Some of the more common diagnoses are explained in more detail.
