Shoulder injuries are common and can occur due to various reasons. Some common types of shoulder injuries include:
Rotator Cuff Tears: Tears in the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles, often caused by overuse or traumatic injury.
Shoulder Impingement: Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and bursa between the humeral head and the acromion, leading to pain.
Shoulder Dislocation: Displacement of the shoulder joint, often resulting from trauma or overextension.
Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis): Stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint, limiting range of motion.
Labral Tears: Injury to the labrum, the cartilage around the shoulder socket, often seen in athletes involved in overhead activities.
Fractures: Fractures of the collarbone (clavicle) or upper arm bone (humerus), caused by fall or trauma, can cause significant shoulder pain.
Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa sacs in the shoulder, leading to pain and discomfort.
AC Joint Subluxation: Injury to the acromioclavicular joint, commonly caused by a fall onto the shoulder.
Treatment for shoulder injuries varies based on the type and severity of the injury. It may include rest, physiotherapy, pain management, and, in some cases, surgical intervention. Seeking prompt medical attention is crucial to determine the appropriate course of action for recovery.
