Swift Shoulder Institute

Whether you are an athlete suffering from an injury to your shoulder, or if the wear and tear of life has left you with a painful or arthritic joint, you want to get back to an active, symptom-free life.

This means different things for different people – for a competitive tennis player or a professional athlete, thats having a shoulder that is functioning at a level that allows them to be competitive in their sport. For others, they may want to get back to all the activities they love – snowboarding, skiing, hiking, weightlifting, or swimming. And yet for others, shoulder pain has impacted daily activities. For these individuals, simple daily activities such as washing their hair, unloading the dishwasher or yard work has become difficult.

Often patients with shoulder problems are not sure where to start – is it a sports medicine doctor, a joint replacement surgeon or a physical therapist who specializes in shoulders?

At Swift Shoulder Institute, we can help you find the right specialists and care providers to treat your problem – the first time. Together we specifically serve patients with shoulder injuries, pain, or arthritis. We treat more patients with shoulder problems than any other orthopedic practice in the region.
