Our Approach to Treating

Shoulder Sprains, Strains & Tears

Specialists at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center are experts in diagnosing and treating people with shoulder sprains, strains, and tears.

Shoulder strength and range of motion are dependent upon ligaments, muscles, and tendons working together. An injury in any of these parts of the shoulder can limit your ability to move and lift your arms. It can also cause chronic pain.

Our orthopedists and surgeons specialize in managing shoulder injuries to help you heal. They work with physical and occupational therapists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation to make sure you recover fully and return to work, sports, or other activities as quickly as possible.
