Sports Shoulder Injuries
Partial tears to these shoulder muscles and ligaments can typically be treated with rehabilitation and bracing. However, specific treatment for a shoulder ligament/tendon injury will be determined by your physician based on age, overall health, medical history, extent of the injury, the patient's tolerance for specific medications, procedures and therapies. Also, depending on the extent of the injury, treatment may include muscle-strengthening exercises, protective shoulder brace, RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation), or potentially surgery.
