The shoulders are complex joints surrounded by muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissue. Shoulder injuries can result in chronic pain, limited motion and weakness in the arm.
The shoulder is a complex structure formed by multiple joints, muscles and ligaments making it the one of the most flexible and moveable joints we have.
Each year millions suffer from shoulder injuries. Whether from a daily activity, sports injury or serious accident, all are extremely painful and require immediate attention to make sure the best treatment is given.
Many workers never regain full strength or range of motion in a damaged shoulder. Many also face ongoing pain.
Shoulder injuries range from mild to severe and are classified under two categories. Instability is when one feels pain when raising their arm or feels their shoulder slipping. Impingement is a repeated rubbing of the muscles up on the top part of the shoulder blade usually followed by inflammation.
Some of the most common injuries associated with the shoulder include:
- Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
- Fractured shoulder blade
- Joint injuries
- Shoulder instability
- Shoulder joint tear
- Sprains and strains
A majority of shoulder injuries are caused by accidents involving falls, sports injuries, work related injuries and car accidents. There are limited treatment options for those who suffer from a shoulder injury, some methods include, cortisone shots, surgery, and joint replacement for severe cases. These treatments can be costly, painful and involve a set back at work.
