Published results showed preoperative grip strength positively correlated with shoulder strength and function after reverse shoulder arthroplasty and may work as a prediction tool for outcomes in these patients.
This type of pain can be caused by common conditions like muscle strain or cervical stenosis. Or, it may stem from rarer but more serious concerns like a heart attack or lung cancer. This article will detail eight potential causes of left-side neck and shoulder pain and address how to find relief from each.
Surgical Intervention Following a First Traumatic Anterior Shoulder Dislocation is Worthy of Consideration
Up to 60% of patients experience recurrence after a first traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation (FTASD), which is often defined as having experienced either dislocation or subluxation. Thus, surgical intervention following a FTASD is worthy of consideration and is guided by the number of patients that need to receive surgical intervention to prevent one redislocation (i.e., Number Needed to Treat), (subjective) health benefit, complication risk, and costs.
Results published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found patients who underwent anatomic total or reverse shoulder arthroplasty had “significant and rapid” improvements in sleep disturbance after surgery.
A Hill-Sachs injury to the shoulder can occur due to a shoulder dislocation, resulting in a Hill-Sachs lesion or a Hill-Sachs deformity of the head of the humerus bone (the upper arm bone).As the bones in the shoulder joint dislocate, the round humeral head (the ball on the top of the arm bone) can strike the edge of the glenoid bone (the socket) with force. This creates a compression fracture in the humeral head. A small divot in the bone is often seen on MRI, and larger Hill-Sachs injuries may also be seen on an X-ray.

Lower Risk of Revision Surgery After Arthroscopic Versus Open Irrigation and Débridement for Shoulder Septic Arthritis
Risk of revision I&D was markedly lower after arthroscopic I&D compared with open, although the protective benefit was limited to patients aged 65 years or older. Arthroscopy was also associated with decreased costs, length of stay, and complications. Although surgeons must consider specific patient factors, our results suggest that arthroscopic I&D is superior to open I&D.
Shoulder arthritis refers to damage to the cartilage in the shoulder joint. It usually results from wear and tear on cartilage due to aging or injury, such as a fracture.
Shoulder surgery is often necessary for many common shoulder problems. Procedures can range from minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to more traditional open surgeries using a scalpel and sutures.
Pain between the shoulders is common: As many as one in 10 men and one in five women experience upper back pain, according to a 2015 journal article in Occupational Medicine.
