With Dr. Carlisle, treatment for my chronic pain is under control. Dr. Carlisle has a caring bedside manner and is genuinely concerned about my well-being. Dr. Carlisle has saved my life. –  DM

Experts say that the upper extremities can assume more than 1,600 positions – all centered in the complex area in and around the shoulder joint. It’s no wonder that shoulder injuries account for the largest percentage of sports-related injuries. The shoulder blade, collar bone, and shoulder joint connect to the muscle groups to do all the work of stretching, pulling, pushing, punching, lifting, throwing, swimming, and more.

Shoulder pain can sideline your ability to do even the simplest activities such as brushing your hair or getting dressed.
