During a Cross-Fit Open Richard Henson sustained a fall that blew out his left shoulder, severing all three ligaments. “Dr. Schwartz gave me my options: he said I could choose to do nothing other than physical therapy and I’d be ok but I’d never be able to do Crossfit again. Or, I could have surgery to repair and rebuild the shoulder and continue Crossfit. My wife and I decided that surgery was the way to go.”

It is very important to seek immediate medical attention if you have pain in your shoulder.
Seek emergency medical care immediately if you have been injured or if your symptoms are severe. Shoulder pain may be related to a serious medical condition, including infection or cancer. In the context of all shoulder problems, early diagnosis and treatment are necessary to prevent further damage and complications.
Once emergency care has been administered, orthopaedic medicine may be able to help immensely with pain symptoms that can arise from a variety of ailments, or linger long after an injury.
Shoulder problems usually develop as a result of an injury, everyday wear and tear, or overuse. Injuries to the shoulder most commonly occur during work or recreational activities, or as a result of a fall. Shoulder problems may also be related to muscle tension, poor posture, or a condition in another part of the body. It is also important to note that old injuries may cause lasting pain and chronic problems.
