Shoulder

Shoulders are one of the most mobile joints in the human body and allow for a wide range of motion. However, as the shoulder is only held together by soft tissues, any tear, inflammation or abrasion to these tissues can result in severe pain and lasting damage. Shoulder pain can be caused by sports, repetitive movements, manual labour or simply the result of aging. Shoulder pain can also be due to underlying shoulder conditions and serve as an indicator of heavy injury. As such, you should investigate persistent pain with your trusted orthopaedic surgeon.

Some common shoulder conditions that professional athletes and casual sportspeople suffer from are rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulders and shoulder impingements.

Frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder is the common name for adhesive capsulitis, which is a shoulder condition that limits your range of motion. When the tissues in your shoulder joint become thicker and tighter, scar tissue develops over time. As a result, your shoulder joint doesn’t have enough space to rotate properly. Common symptoms include swelling, pain, and stiffness. You’re more likely to have the condition if you’re between the ages of 40 and 60.

Dislocated Shoulder

A dislocated shoulder is when the head of the humerus is out of the shoulder joint. Symptoms include shoulder pain and instability. Complications may include a Bankart lesion, Hill-Sachs lesion, rotator cuff tear, or injury to the surrounding nerves. In some cases, a fracture can occur at the same time.

In patient who require surgery, Keyhole Knotless Repair technique leads to shorter duration of surgery with fewer skin incisions.

Rotator Cuff Tear

A rotator cuff tear is a rip in the group of four muscles and tendons that stabilize your shoulder joint and let you lift and rotate your arms.

Common rotator cuff injury symptoms include:

  • avoiding certain activities because they cause pain
  • difficulty achieving full range of shoulder motion
  • difficulty sleeping on the affected shoulder
  • pain or tenderness when reaching overhead
  • pain in the shoulder, especially at night
  • progressive weakness of the shoulder
  • trouble reaching behind the back
