Olympia’s Top Shoulder Injury Experts

The shoulder is responsible for the movements required for daily activities, work, and athletic performance. Injuries or conditions that affect the shoulder can be especially problematic for patients. Many of the activities required for day-to-day living or competing in sports can be harder or even impossible because of shoulder pain.

The following are some of the most commonly treated shoulder injuries and conditions treated by the Shoulder Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates:

At Olympia Orthopaedic Associates, our Shoulder 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. The Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates are experts in the latest arthroscopic and traditional shoulder surgical procedures.

Our goal is always to get you back to an active and healthy lifestyle!

Should I Make An Appointment?

If you have a shoulder injury, or have been experiencing shoulder pain that last for more than a few days, it is always best to meet with one of our specialists and get an accurate diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is established, we will build a custom treatment plan for your lifestyle and needs. Our goal is to treat conservatively whenever possible.

“Dr. McKay performed a repair to my right shoulder to include my rotator cuff, removed built-up arthritis and bone spurs. I now have no pain and consider the repairs to my shoulder to be a 100% recovery.  Dr. McKay is a miracle worker, because he was not sure he could repair it all, but he did and I would recommend him to anyone!!!”

Reba M.

Treated by: William Peterson, MD

I was extremely nervous because I was afraid I had hurt myself to the point of needing surgery. Dr. Helpenstell was very pleasant and made me feel at ease from the second we met. I was no longer scared and really felt that he cared about me personally. Not just some anonymous person. I would recommend anyone to go see Dr Helpenstell.”
