Expert Treatment From Atlanta’s Top Shoulder Specialists

Suprascapular Neuropathy

Suprascapular neuropathy is caused by a compression of the suprascapular nerve, a motor nerve that controls two of the main muscles in the shoulder blade. This condition results in shoulder instability, which can make it difficult to perform simple tasks and live life the way you enjoy it. If left untreated, suprascapular neuropathy can lead to more severe problems.

The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Specialists can help you find relief from suprascapular neuropathy through a variety of minimally-invasive treatment options. We can help you take preventative measures to ensure that no further damage comes to your shoulder, and we'll also work with you to strengthen the muscles in your shoulder blade to provide stability and prevent future injury.

If you are experiencing the symptoms of suprascapular neuropathy, schedule your first consultation with The Physicians. We will develop a personalized treatment plan to get you back to living your life pain-free.

Treatment & Diagnosis of Suprascapular Neuropathy

The first step in diagnosing stenosing tenosynovitis is completing a comprehensive medical evaluation. This will typically include a review of your medical history, a physical examination, and diagnostic imaging tests such as an MRI or X-ray. Once a diagnosis has been made, your physician will work with you to develop a treatment plan that may include one or more of the following:

  • Corticosteroid injections: These injections help to reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Splinting or bracing: A splint or brace can be used to immobilize the affected finger and allow it to rest and heal.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to release the constricting tendon sheath.

The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Specialists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of stenosing tenosynovitis. We will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that is designed to help you regain full mobility in your finger and get back to your normal life.
