Best Clinical Practices in Chronic Shoulder Pain – Evidence of Newer Non-surgical Treatments

Nimish Mittal, Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine - Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Toronto

Chronic shoulder pain is a common complaint, and the most common causes include rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder and shoulder arthritis. There is a lack of clear guidelines for best clinical practices in the treatment of chronic shoulder pain. This session will provide an update on the evidence for newer interventional procedures in rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder and shoulder arthritis. The audience will be updated on the practical use of ultrasound-guided shoulder pain interventions in the clinical setting, including information on patient selection and procedural techniques. The session will be of value to physiatrists, sports physicians, rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons, family physicians, medical students, and residents.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize sonographic anatomy of shoulder relevant to shoulder injections
  • Identify the current evidence for office based ultrasound guided procedures in treatment of chronic shoulder pain
  • Describe the techniques of radiofrequency neurotomy for shoulder pain in glenohumeral arthritis
