Having shoulder problems? Come see us and our shoulder surgeons will treat your shoulder condition. We see alot of rotator cuff tears, shoulder tendonitis & arthritis and bicepts tendinitis. We also do shoulder joint replacement.
The labrum is the cartilage rim that surrounds the socket of the shoulder joint. The labrum can tear when a worker falls and hangs by their arm. The labrum can also tear as an occupational injury when the arm is used forcibly overhead.
The rotator cuff helps to lift and rotate the arm and to stabilize the ball of the shoulder within the joint. Workers that suffer from impingement can weaken the rotator cuff to the point where it tears.
A shoulder dislocation occurs when the ball completely comes out of the joint’s socket. This occurs when the arm is pushed backwards and levers the ball to pop out from a fall while snowboarding or skiing and from contact during football and the martial arts.
The shoulder is easily injured because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. To remain stable, the shoulder must be anchored by its muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
A shoulder separation is an injury to the joint between the clavicle and the shoulder blade. This part of the shoulder can be injured from a blow or a fall onto the top of the shoulder during football, hockey, skiing, and snowboarding. This injury can also occur after repeated weightlifting.
