An unwelcome introduction to shoulder bursitis, a painful inflammation in the joint most often brought on by overuse or injury. The wear and tear of daily life can make this a chronic condition, too.
A discovery by a multi-institutional team of researchers and engineers about how tendon and bone attach in the shoulder joint has uncovered previously unsuspected engineering strategies for attaching dissimilar materials. The discovery also sheds new light on how the rotator cuff functions and on why rotator cuff repairs fail so frequently.
The acromioclavicular joint, abbreviated as the AC joint, is the junction of the end of the collarbone (clavicle) with the side of the shoulder blade (called the acromion). The AC joint can be damaged much like other joints and may require treatment.
When you run, you know to hold your chest up and proud, keep your spine long and tall, and your shoulders pulled back. But how often do you think about your posture when you’re sitting?
When a patient initially presents with multiple shoulder instability events, nonoperative treatment will most likely not be successful in treating their traumatic anterior shoulder instability, a new study finds.
In active-duty military patients younger than 35 years with type II superior labral anterior-posterior tears, biceps tenodesis is more effective in improving pain and function than superior labral anterior-posterior repair, according to new study data.
