Attention in injuries
Also called swimmers shoulder or subacromial impingement. It’s shoulder pain caused by connective tissue (a tendon) rubbing on a shoulder edge. This is not painful under normal conditions, but when inflammation and swelling occurs, it is importante to determine the cause.
A type of arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the end of bones wears down. This requires a medical diagnosis. It generates mechanic pain (while moving) or sometimes while resting. Treatment must be correcting the malalignmen, changing weight balance, physiotherapy, NSAIDs and some times arthroplasty.
AC dislocation or Separation
Usually caused by a blow to the shoulder and a fall in which the person lands directly on the shoulder. It’s a dislocation on the clavicle from the acromion. Depending on the degree, treatment can range from conservative to surgical.
Is an inflammation or irritation of the upper biceps tendon. Extremely common pain in young athletes and people who has felt some kind of pull on the front shoulder. 90% of cases can be managed conservative with NSAIDs, rest and physical therapy.
It occurs sometimes as a result of a shoulder dislocation, but there are several factors that could cause the second or more dislocations. Depending of the physical exam and the MRI the surgery must be planned. GH instability is sometimes extremely disabling.
Is not the same as rigid shoulder. The cause is unknown, so, the treatment may be different than other rigid shoulder causes. Final result is good, but it depends on the acute attention and early visit to the shoulder specialist.
Also called lateral epicondylitis. Is an irritation of the tissue connecting the forearm muscle to the elbow. Usually occurs on the outside of the elbow and sometimes in the wrist or forearm. Treatment is successful in 90% of the patients under general medical care.
Rotator Cuff Tear
A tear in the tissue connecting muscle to bone (tendon) around the shoulder joint. This requires a medical diagnosis. Is a common cause of shoulder pain at nights. Causes lifting arm disability above the head. Can be degenerative or caused by an injury. Early treatment can prevent the increase of the tear, regain the shoulder mobility and heal the pain.
Has multiple causes like frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears, neurologic problems and fractures sequels. Early treatment will offer a diagnose, therapeutic plan and a functional prognosis.
