Shoulder Pain

he shoulder joint is a complicated series of muscles, labrum tissues and ligaments. It is one of the only two ball and socket joints (the other being the hip), allowing it to have the biggest range of motion in the body. That being said, there are many injuries that are specific to the shoulder.

Common shoulder problems:

 

Serious shoulder injuries including fractures of the clavicle and humeral head normally occurs only in the case of direct trauma, such as a fall from great heights, impact sports, or a traffic accident. Therefore a majority of the injuries mentioned above are attributed due to normal wear and tear of the joint. Fortunately treatment options tend to be quite effective and recovery periods relatively short. In many cases simply rest and anti-inflammatory medicine will allow the body to naturally heal itself. However in more severe cases arthroscopic surgery is the option of choice due to it’s low risk, and short recovery period. Arthroscopic surgery is performed by making small incisions near the affected area, inserting specialised instruments through those incisions to access the joint and perform the necessary surgery. Without the need to open up the entire area to see the joint, recovery periods can be drastically reduced.
