Shoulder problems can encompass a variety of conditions affecting the structures in and around the shoulder joint. Here’s a summary of common shoulder problems:

Rotator Cuff Injuries:

  • Description: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons stabilizing the shoulder joint. Injuries can include tears or inflammation.
  • Symptoms: Pain, weakness, and limited range of motion, especially when lifting the arm.

Shoulder Impingement:

  • Description: Occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff become compressed between the acromion (part of the shoulder blade) and the humerus (upper arm bone).
  • Symptoms: Pain and weakness, particularly when lifting the arm overhead.

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis):

  • Description: Inflammation and thickening of the shoulder capsule, restricting movement.
  • Symptoms: Gradual onset of pain and stiffness, leading to limited shoulder mobility.

Shoulder Dislocation:

  • Description: Displacement of the humeral head from the shoulder socket.
  • Symptoms: Intense pain, swelling, and instability. Recurrent dislocations may occur.

Labral Tears:

  • Description: Tears in the labrum, a ring of cartilage that surrounds the shoulder socket.
  • Symptoms: Pain, a sense of instability, and sometimes catching or popping sensations.

Shoulder Arthritis:

  • Description: Degeneration of the shoulder joint cartilage.
  • Symptoms: Pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are common types.

Bursitis:

  • Description: Inflammation of the bursa, fluid-filled sacs that reduce friction between tendons and bones.
  • Symptoms: Pain, swelling, and tenderness, especially with arm movements.

Clavicle Fracture:

  • Description: Fracture of the collarbone (clavicle).
  • Symptoms: Pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the arm.

Tendonitis:

  • Description: Inflammation of tendons, often affecting the biceps or other shoulder tendons.
  • Symptoms: Pain, swelling, and sometimes a “snapping” sensation with movement.

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Separation:

  • Description: Injury to the ligaments holding the acromion and clavicle together.
  • Symptoms: Pain and swelling at the top of the shoulder, often resulting from trauma.

Treatment for shoulder problems varies based on the specific condition but may include rest, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroid injections, and in some cases, surgical intervention. Early diagnosis and appropriate management are crucial for optimal recovery and preventing long-term complications.
