Links to Shoulder Information Websites
This website is designed to provide patients a general overview of my philosophy on how to treat shoulder pain. It covers some of the more common shoulder problems as illustrative examples. It is not meant to serve as a replacement for the advice of a medical professional or to make a diagnosis. I have provided some useful links to websites with more extensive information on shoulder disorders. There is much incorrect or misleading information on the web. While I have tried to provide a list of sites with accurate information, I have no authority over how these organizations create or maintain their site. I can not guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness or completeness of their information.
