A discovery by a multi-institutional team of researchers and engineers about how tendon and bone attach in the shoulder joint has uncovered previously unsuspected engineering strategies for attaching dissimilar materials. The discovery also sheds new light on how the rotator cuff functions and on why rotator cuff repairs fail so frequently.
For starters, "good" posture occurs when the muscles of the body support the skeleton in an alignment that is both stable and energy efficient.
Shoulder blade pain doesn't always have an obvious cause. It can be a symptom of something serious like a heart attack or lung cancer. Or maybe you slept on it wrong or have poor posture at the computer.
Apparently so. A new study looking at the postoperative recurrence rate after arthroscopic bony Bankart repair found that it was lower in male competitive rugby and American football players with a large glenoid defect, in fact 3x lower, than in those with a small glenoid defect.
Dead arm syndrome is a condition that affects the shoulder. It’s caused by repeated movements, which place stress on the joint.
