Shoulder pain and recovery is a specialty at Sports Medicine Northwest. Dr. Pond’s passion for medicine began thirteen years ago when he tore his right labrum and worked his way back into a full non-surgical recovery. We diagnose and treat dozens of shoulder injuries every week with non-surgical alternatives. Most people need to begin with movement pattern retraining as the shoulder is a complex joint and subtle muscle imbalances lead to painful impingement and dysfunction. We selected our massage therapist based on the strength of her shoulder practical interview. Our acupuncturist has undergone advanced training in pain management of shoulder injuries. If you have concerns about your shoulder this is a great place to start.
