“Scope” is shorthand for arthroscopy, a procedure that allows surgeons to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems inside a joint, such as an elbow, knee or shoulder.
Swinging a club with a sore shoulder is no fun. Shoulder injuries – along with low back, wrist, and elbow – are the most common injuries for golf players. The first step is to determine what’s causing the pain. Two options could be muscle overuse or inflammation of the rotator cuff caused by poor swing mechanics. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles that surround the shoulder joint.
