Shoulder & Elbow


The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body, enabling a wide range of movements, including forward flexion, abduction, adduction, external rotation, internal rotation, and 360-degree circumduction.

The elbow is a complex joint formed by the articulation of three bones, the humerus, radius, and ulna. The elbow joint helps in bending or straightening of the arm to 180 degrees and assists in lifting or moving objects. Trauma to the elbow or persistent issues with elbow function should be assessed by a specialized elbow doctor who can provide the necessary attention and solution.

For those in Dallas, Plano, Frisco, or the surrounding metro area, consider visiting with Dr. Jason Klein if you are experiencing any of the intense or long-term elbow symptoms outlined below:

  • Significant elbow pain and/or tenderness in the elbow joint.
  • Redness, warmth, and/or swelling in and around the elbow area.
  • Weakness and/or loss of grip strength in the affected arm.
  • Pain that worsens with gripping, lifting, or twisting motions.

The elbow conditions treated by Dr. Klein and the services offered include:

Trauma & Fracture

The word “Fracture” implies a broken bone. A bone may get fractured completely or partially, and it is caused commonly from trauma due to fall, motor vehicle accident, or sports. While many fractures are the result of high-force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur because of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.

Elbow fractures and shoulder fractures, including clavicle fractures, are very painful and may be associated with bruises and swelling. You may experience numbness or weakness and may be unable to rotate your arm if you have experienced elbow or shoulder trauma.

Upper extremity fractures can be treated with nonsurgical methods of casting or bracing, or surgical methods of reducing the bones and fixing them in the right place with pins, screws, and plates. This is known as shoulder or elbow fracture stabilization.

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. They can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, and dislocations.

Severe pain in your shoulders while playing your favorite sport, such as tennis, basketball, and gymnastics, may be caused by a torn ligament or dislocation of a shoulder bone. This may result from overuse of your shoulder while playing sports. Simple shoulder pain or acute injuries may be treated with conservative treatment, while chronic injuries may require surgical treatment. Repeated injuries to the shoulder, through trauma or overuse, can lead to shoulder instability or shoulder arthritis, requiring shoulder reconstruction or shoulder replacement.
