Shoulder problems are sneaky and complicated. In this course, Dr. Susanne Hall will help us sort out the causes of shoulder pain. The most common problems in the shoulder such as bursitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, and rotator cuff tears are typically felt on the side or front of the shoulder and send pain down the side or front of the arm. This course will identify common shoulder problems, identify how to recognize red flags and outline how to prevent injuries.

She founded Appalachian Shoulder Specialists in 2005 and practices in Hendersonville, NC. Dr. Hall attended medical school at the University of Massachusetts, interned at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, spent her orthopedic residency at Bronx Lebanon Hospital (affiliated with Albert Einstein College of Medicine) and served a shoulder fellowship at the Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopedic Institute in New York City.
