Shoulder Pain
Steven E. Nolan, M.D.
Does nagging shoulder pain affect your golf or tennis game? Does it ache when you are working out or keep you awake at night? More than likely, it is not going to go away on its own and trying to “push through” the pain may even worsen the situation.
Shoulder pain can result from injuries or overuse. Rotator cuff injuries are very common and start to occur and increase in the fourth and fifth decades of life. Many people will lose their range of motion due to these injuries.
The best way to take care of shoulder pain is to see a board certified orthopedic surgeon. A physical exam followed by an MRI is the most accurate way to diagnose the problem. Treatment plans will vary but may include medications, injections, physical therapy and possibly surgery. The advances in arthroscopic surgery are amazing and not only will alleviate the problem but will allow for a quick recovery and return to favorite sports and activities.
Dr. Steven E. Nolan is a fellowship trained, board certified orthopedic surgeon with the Fondren Orthopedic group and is highly skilled in arthroscopic surgery.

Treat the Whole Body
The Healing Center
The Healing Center advocates treating the whole person, not just the symptom. There are six Interferences to Health: Structural Interference, Nutritional Deficiency, Allergies/Sensitivities, Emotional Stress, Toxicity Levels, and Electrical Pollution. All of these can affect the heart.
The body’s natural state is wellness, unless there is interference. The key to health is to remove the six Interferences to Health. Standard medical treatment focuses on Crisis Care. It is very important to not merely look at the symptoms, but to identify and correct the six Interferences, thus reversing the cause of the problem and then work to prevent further problems from occurring.
Medication usually does not and cannot re­move the interference. Even if organs and glands can be removed with surgery, the cause can still remain. In order to remove the six interferences, it must be determined which one of the six should be addressed and the best methods of correction.
Call 281-647-7703 for your Healthy Heart Evaluation or visit www.thehealingcenterkaty@­ The cost of this is $49 and includes the doctor’s evaluation, a full body massage and the ionic detox cleanse.
