Shoulder Pain Relief Specialist Near Hayward

It is hard to imagine the limitations in movement one can experience due to shoulder pain without having ever experienced these issues.

The shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint that connects three bones. If you experience shoulder pain, it may stem from the humerus (arm bone), scapula (shoulder blade) or the clavicle (collar bone). Additionally, these bones are cushioned by a layer of cartilage, which can also suffer damage.
Besides the discomfort and pain that results from shoulder damage, a patient’s range of motion can be significantly impacted. Simple tasks such as lifting a cup, putting on a coat or sitting and sleeping comfortably may become challenging.

The shoulder joints consist of the acromioclavicular joint and the glenohumeral joint. The former is located between the top of the clavicle and scapula, where the latter forms at the peak of the ball-shaped section of the humerus and outer edge of the scapula – otherwise referred to as the shoulder joint.
As the joint that enjoys the most range of motion, we often take the mechanisms of the shoulder for granted. If you cannot move your shoulder, it may render your arm effectively useless. This motion is only possible thanks to the rotator cuff, which consists of four tendons. When the rotator cuff suffers damage, the range of movement is often severely reduced.

If you have suffered an injury to your shoulder through work, sports or as the symptom of a disease, Dr. Kerisimasi Reynolds can offer excellent orthopedic care. Each patient will benefit from an individualized treatment plan that is designed to identify the root cause of your pain and offer effective solutions.

Shoulder Pain Causes

There are a number of potential causes of shoulder pain, for which Dr. Reynolds can provide a remedy near Hayward. The most common cause of shoulder pain is rotator cuff tendinitis, which presents as inflamed tendons. Impingement syndrome is the result of the rotator cuff becoming trapped between the acromion and humeral head.

You may also suffer from referred shoulder pain, which originates from an injury to another part of the body. Although pain is experienced in the shoulder, it does not usually become further aggravated due to movement of the shoulder joints.

There are a large number of other potential causes of shoulder pain, including arthritis. Dr. Kerisimasi Reynolds has the experience and orthopedic medical expertise to provide a full diagnosis and determine the best course of pain relief treatment to aid your recovery.

Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery – Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Reynolds may recommend arthroscopic surgery for patients who require a minimally invasive option for repairing damage to specific areas of the shoulder. This procedure results in smaller scars and does not cause significant patient trauma. Treatment plans where Dr. Reynolds can perform an arthroscopic surgery may address:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

Dr. Reynolds is such an amazing doctor who is passionate and dedicates all his knowledge to help patients improve their health and injuries. I appreciate his patience and willingness to go above and beyond what is asked.

Dr Reynolds performed a very technical and complicated surgery on my son's shoulder last year. My son is (was!) a college football player and had 3 different shoulder surgeries to repair the same issue. After repeated failures I found Dr. Reynolds. He performed a Laterjet surgery which is something that is rarely done. Fast-forward a year, my son's shoulder has never had any more problems and he is stronger than ever. Thank you, Dr. Reynolds!

I went to see Dr. Raynolds because of his solid 5 star ratings. After seeing him, if I could, I would give him and his staff a solid 10 star ratings, and here is why: My 1st Impression: Beautiful and relaxing pictures of Canyons, welcoming & smiling staff, clean offices. My Time: Efficient and knowledgeable staff, and a reasonable wait time. The Best: .... Dr. Reynolds... every inch of his body exudes compassion. He listens attentively, takes his time to examine, he gives clear explanation of the injury, and answers all questions with care. Everything he did convinced me that I was lucky to have found him. (Thank you Yelp) :) I highly recommend Dr. Raynolds to my friends, my families and to anyone who's looking for the BEST and trustworthy surgeon. ~ Wishing you a smooth and quick recovery!

I went to see Dr. Reynolds last week because I have chronic pain in my hip. He was incredible helpful and knowledgeable. He greeted me with a warm smile and was patient and kind, showing me exactly what the problem is and the treatment alternatives. He spent a lot of time with me and I am extremely happy with the treatment plan he has for me. I can highly recommend him.

Dr Reynolds is a Rock Star! I ripped a bicep tendon clean off my forearm in September 2016. After countless phone calls to the huge "Non Profit" hospital chain I usually go to, and the realization that they wouldn't be able to see me in several weeks, I decided to look elsewhere. My son had previously been treated by Dr. Haber at a small clinic in Campbell, so I called the clinic, and got an appointment with his colleague, Dr Kerisimasi Reynolds. I have to say that I was a little hesitant at first, because of his young age, and I was wondering how many surgeries he had performed. Anyway, I got a really good vibe from him, and he was super professional and explained everything really well in terms I could understand. He got me an MRI the same day, a follow up visit the next day I think, and he was able to do the surgery within the next 5 days. I decided to go for it, and it was a 1 hour surgery with a long recovery. This was in September, and I have my last physical therapy session next week. That said, I'd go under the knife for Dr Kerisimasi again anytime if I needed to. He's totally on top of his game, knows a lot about all the latest advancements in orthopedic surgery, etc. He also followed up with personal phone calls, emails, and even gave me his cell phone number in case I had post operation questions or concerns. I've been very active my whole life in a variety of sports and outdoors activities, and he has the mindset that he wants to enable you to get back to those activities as soon as possible, which I really appreciate. I give him an A+. He performed a state-of-the-art tendon reattachment surgery, and I'm basically fully recovered by now. I'm lifting weights, working without pain, and hope to be back in my river kayak this spring! I hope I don't have to see him in the operating room again, but if I do, I know I'm in good hands :-)
