Snapping scapula syndrome causes pain and mechanical catching and grinding symptoms around the shoulder blade (scapula). Using minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery, the problem can be treated and cured. This procedure, which is not widely available, has been refined by Dr. Millett and involves removing bone spurs and inflamed tissue to restore full painless motion. Recovery is typically quick, and sometimes can even be within a few days from the procedure.
Arthroscopic procedures can vary and can help treat other symptoms and conditions. For example, if you are experiencing ongoing shoulder popping and instability associated with a snapping scapula (shoulder blade) then arthroscopic surgery can treat and cure the shoulder related pain and mechanical catching and grinding symptoms in the shoulder blade region.
