Expert shoulder care close to home

You use your shoulder all day long to help lift, reach, push, pull and rotate your arms. As the most flexible joint in the body, the shoulder gives us arm strength and a wide range of motion. However, this amount of flexibility can lead to overuse or injury. 

If you have shoulder pain and weakness, it can be difficult to enjoy everyday life. Whether you like to cook, play a sport, garden or just want to move through life without pain, the orthopedic surgeons and specialists at The Christ Hospital Health Network want to get you back to your normal routine as quickly as possible.

We're Cincinnati's leading destination for Joint & Spine Care. Our team of highly-skilled, experienced orthopedic specialists can determine the best treatment to get you moving again. Because even a moment is too long for pain.
