You probably don't think about your shoulders much, until you suddenly experience pain in one of them. Shoulder pain can make a simple act — brushing and drying your hair, reaching behind your back to fasten a bra, or grabbing something overhead — seem like a monumental task.
The rotator cuff muscles can be prone to inflammation and tears during overhead activities or due to wear and tear. An important way to reduce tears or rotator cuff injury is by strengthening these muscles.
The clinical impact of arthroscopic vs. open osteocapsular débridement for primary osteoarthritis of the elbow: a systematic review
Primary elbow osteoarthritis (PEOA) is a debilitating disease that can be difficult to treat. Osteocapsular débridement (OD) has been described through various approaches, including arthroscopic and open approaches, with successful outcomes in treating PEOA. The purpose of this review was to compare the clinical results of arthroscopic vs. open OD for PEOA.
Published results showed no significant differences in clinical outcomes at 12 months among patients with acute traumatic rotator cuff tears who received either surgical treatment or nonoperative treatment.
The goal of all surgical treatments for a shoulder separation is to restore the normal alignment of the end of the collarbone with the outer edge of the shoulder blade (the acromion)
Shoulder exercises can be useful in the treatment of many of the common causes of shoulder pain. These exercises are also part of the usual rehabilitation from most any shoulder surgery. Shoulder exercises should be performed under the direction of a physician to ensure the proper muscles are being targeted for your condition.
If you're not taking regular breaks to move around during your workday, your muscles may rebel after being scrunched in your desk chair hour after hour.
A shoulder separation sounds like an odd injury, but in reality, it refers to the stretching or tearing of ligaments where the collarbone (clavicle) meets the shoulder blade (scapula). This intersection is also called the acromioclavicular or AC joint.
Background: Overuse injuries of the shoulder and elbow continue to be prevalent in elite baseball pitchers. Pitch velocity has been shown to impact medial elbow torque in adolescent baseball pitchers. However, the determinants of medial elbow torque in professional baseball pitchers are not known.
A recently published study outlines an alternative multimodal pain management pathway that eliminates the need for opioids in patients undergoing elective reverse and anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty.
