- Rotator Cuff Tears
The rotator cuff is a group of tendons in the shoulder joint providing support and enabling a wide range of motion. Major injury to these tendons may result in tear of these tendons, a condition called rotator cuff tear.
- Shoulder Impingement
Shoulder impingement is the condition of inflammation of the tendons of the shoulder joint. It is one of the most common causes of pain in the adult shoulder.
- Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by pain and loss of motion in the shoulder joint. It is more common in older adults aged between 40 and 60 years and is more common in women than men.
- Shoulder Instability
Shoulder instability is a chronic condition that causes frequent dislocation of the shoulder joint.
- Rotator Cuff Arthropathy
Motion thru the glenohumeral joint (ball and socket) is accomplished by a fine equilibrium created by the muscles that surround the shoulder. This equilibrium is largely created by the deltoid and rotator cuff.
- AC (Acromioclavicular) Joint Arthritis
The acromioclavicular joint is part of the shoulder joint. It is formed by the union of the acromion, a bony process of the shoulder blade, and the outer end of the collar bone or clavicle.
- Clavicle Fracture
The clavicle or the collarbone is the bone that connects your sternum or breastbone to your shoulder.
- Calcific Tendinitis
Calcific cuff tendinopathy is a problem with the shoulder’s tendons and muscles. This condition occurs due to the formation of calcium deposits in the tendons (tissue which attaches muscle to bone) of the rotator cuff (group of muscles and tendons stabilizing the shoulder).
- Shoulder Dislocation
Playing more overhead sports and repeated use of the shoulder at the workplace may lead to sliding of the upper arm bone, the ball portion, from the glenoid–the socket portion of the shoulder. The dislocation might be a partial dislocation (subluxation) or a complete dislocation causing pain and shoulder joint instability.
- Biceps Tendonitis
Bicipital tendonitis is the inflammation of the biceps tendon, the tissue that connects muscle to bone in your upper arm, causing pain in the upper arm and shoulder.
- Shoulder Arthritis
The term arthritis literally means inflammation of a joint but is generally used to describe any condition in which there is damage to the cartilage. Damage of the cartilage in the shoulder joint causes shoulder arthritis.
- Shoulder Fracture
A break in a bone that makes up the shoulder joint is called a shoulder fracture.
