Olympia’s Top Shoulder and Elbow Injury Experts
The shoulder and elbow are responsible for the movements required for daily activities, work, and athletic performance.

Many of the activities required for day-to-day living or competing in sports can be harder or even impossible because of shoulder or elbow pain.

At Olympia Orthopaedic Associates, our Shoulder and Elbow Specialists use their skills and knowledge to evaluate, diagnose, and treat these injuries and conditions. A customized treatment plan is prescribed to meet the needs of each patient.
Non-surgical treatment options include activity modification, medications, physical therapy, bracing, and more.
Injections may be used to treat patients who are in pain and need immediate relief.
Surgery may be performed when injuries or conditions do not respond to non-surgical treatment options or if there is severe damage to a tendon or ligament in the shoulder or elbow. The Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates are experts in the latest arthroscopic and traditional shoulder and elbow surgical procedures.
Our goal is always to get you back to an active and healthy lifestyle!
