Shoulder Joint

The shoulder joint is the most unstable joint in the body and thereby it has the widest range of motion. The shoulder is responsible for a wide range of functional motions and it positions the arms and hands in space. Shoulder injuries are common among athletes, non-athletes, children and adults alike. The shoulder joint is at risk of overuse, wear and tear, acute or sudden injury and degenerative ailments that create pain and limit range of motion. Shoulder pain can arise from these common conditions:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis & partial tears
  • Labral tears or degeneration
  • AC Joint Separation
  • Proximal Biceps tendon tears
  • Recurrent shoulder dislocations
  • Arthritis of the shoulder joint
  • Cuff Tear Arthropathy of the shoulder joint
