A frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a painful condition which limits your ability to lift your shoulder and arm. It develops gradually, and will continue to get worse over time if not treated properly with PT or home exercises like these to stretch your frozen shoulder.
We are so thankful for all of our patients and their trust in us. We hope you have an enjoyable holiday!

Our Musculoskeletal Pathology Symposium is a worker’s compensation event offered to case managers, adjusters, and occupational health nurses at no cost. Benefits of the symposium include advanced education for participants, continuing education credit, and professional networking.
We are excited to introduce an innovative program for those at risk for sport-related concussion. This program will allow our providers (physicians and athletic trainers) to better evaluate and treat head injuries (concussion). A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that may or may not involve a loss of consciousness, often resulting from a blow or jolt that causes the brain to move quickly back and forth inside the head. Concussion symptoms last various lengths of time and may include slowed reaction time, disorientation, confusion, irritability, headache, blurred vision, nausea, fatigue, as well as sensitivity to sound & light. Left untreated or misdiagnosed, a concussion can result in long-lasting effects.
Ankle injuries are common and are not exclusive to just athletes. This week, John Hewitt, MD appeared on Fox 8 House Calls, Morning Show to discuss ankle injuries. In this video, Dr. Hewitt emphasizes prevention methods to avoid ankle injuries. He also explains signs and symptoms that would best be treated with a visit to Greensboro Orthopaedics. Be sure to watch the video below to learn more!
Our very own orthopaedic surgeon, William Gramig, III, MD joined Fox 8 House Calls, Morning Show to discuss elbow injuries. In this video, he emphasizes the importance of receiving prompt care for acute, traumatic injuries. He speaks about signs and symptoms that would best be treated with a visit to Greensboro Orthopaedics. Dr. Gramig notes baseball & volleyball players, as well as gymnasts commonly, develop chronic overuse injuries. While these injuries can be treated, it is best to take preventive action. Dr. Gramig stresses the significance of sport-specific training programs & rest periods for repetitive athletes as well as those who participate in a single sport year round.
ICYMI… For the last several years, on Memorial Day our very own orthopaedic surgeon, John Hewitt, MD, has been at College Hill CrossFit. This year was no different! Dr. Hewitt, along with the CrossFit community, pays tribute to Navy Lieutenant, Michael P. Murphy each Memorial Day by completing the HERO WOD, “Murph.” The WOD (workout of the day) consists of a 1 mile Run, 100 Pull-Ups, 200 Push-Ups, 300 Air Squats, and another 1 mile Run. Some athletes even wear “body armor” aka a weighted vest for a greater challenge.
Lieutenant, Michael P. Murphy (SEAL), USN was killed in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005. The Memorial Day WOD is said to have been his favorite workout. His military accomplishments, service, and dedication to his country are celebrated by those participating in “Murph.” To learn more about Lieutenant, Michael P. Murphy (SEAL), USN, click HERE.
Like Michael, Dr. Hewitt served in the US Navy. For four years, Dr. Hewitt proudly served his country. Dr. Hewitt is now Greensboro’s only board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with fellowship training in orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery.
