Shore Orthopaedic University Associates New Physician Damon A. Greene, MD

Offers Advice on Shoulder Pain

Dr. Greene, is an orthopedic surgeon, who is
fellowship-trained in sports medicine, arthroscopy
and cartilage surgery. He specializes in acute and
chronic ligament, tendon and cartilage injuries to all
major joints, primarily the shoulders, elbows, knees
and hips.
He grew up just outside of Baltimore playing sports
such as soccer, baseball and lacrosse. As a result, he
suffered from multiple sports injuries, he diligently
worked with athletic trainers and became involved
with his own physical therapy. From this stemmed his
passion for sports medicine.
Dr. Greene attended the University of Maryland
and obtained his medical degree from New York
Medical College. He completed his orthopedic
surgical residency and training at SUNY Downstate in
Brooklyn, where he spent an extra year concentrating
on the diagnosis and treatment of athletic injuries. He
then completed a Sports Medicine Fellowship at the
prestigious Ochsner Sports Medicine Institute in New
Orleans, where he worked with professional sports
teams including the New Orleans Saints and the New
Orleans Pelicans.
His love of the outdoors drew him to the Jersey
Shore, where he enjoys surfing, sailing and running on
the boardwalk. He is excited to become involved with

the community and grow roots here. In his downtime,
he has started covering Middle Township football
games and Stockton basketball games, working with
the trainers and coaches to evaluate athletic injuries
on the spot.
Dr. Greene offers advice on an issue he frequently
treats: Shoulder Pain.
A common cause of shoulder pain is poor posture,
especially for those who work in an office. When you
sit at a computer and type all day, your shoulders tend
to roll forward. If you often get an achy feeling in your
back, arms, shoulders or neck, Dr. Greene suggests to
bring your shoulders down and try and pinch your
shoulder blades together. Relax and repeat the motion
again. This will train your shoulder blades where
they should be to properly support your shoulders.
If you feel numbness or tingling from your neck to
your fingertips, this is indicative of a more serious
condition and it’s time to see your doctor.
