Some of the most common shoulder problems include:
Sprains and Strains are tears to the ligaments or muscles caused by being stretched beyond their capacity.
Dislocation of joints occurs when one of the two bones that make up a joint separates from the other bone.
Tendonitis is inflammation or pain along a tendon. Tendons are the structures that connect your muscles to your bones. Tendons in the shoulder that can experience tendonitis are the rotator cuff tendons and upper part of the biceps muscle.
Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that is found where tendons pass by bony surfaces. Bursitis in the shoulder commonly causes pain on the side or front of the arm, and is worse with activities that place the hand at or above shoulder level.
Torn Rotator Cuffs are a group of four muscles that cover the top part of the arm bone (humerus) and help stabilize and move the arm. These muscles have tendons that can tear and cause shoulder pain and/or weakness.
Frozen Shoulder is a condition that causes painful loss of motion in the shoulder. It often occurs without any known cause of injury or, occasionally, after minor trauma.
Fractures of the bones, or broken bones.
Arthritis occurs when the cartilage of a joint surface is injured. Arthritis can cause pain, swelling, and loss of motion.
