Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is an extremely common complaint that has many causes. Because we use our arms for so many common activities, shoulder pain can cause significant problems. In order for proper treatment, the cause of the problem must be identified.

Shoulder Bursitis / Impingement Syndrome
There are many different problems that can lead to symptoms from inflammation of the bursa (bursitis); impingement is one of those conditions.

Shoulder Arthroscopy
Find information about shoulder arthroscopic. Arthroscopic shoulder surgery can be done to treat a variety of shoulder problems. Many patients prefer arthroscopic surgery because of smaller incisions and faster recovery than traditional shoulder surgery.

Shoulder Instability
Shoulder instability is a problem of a loose shoulder joint. Instability can be caused by a previous dislocation, or it may happen when the ligaments around the joint are too loose.

Shoulder Dislocation
A shoulder dislocation is an injury that occurs when the top of the arm bone (humerus) becomes disconnected from the shoulder blade (scapula). Shoulder dislocations occur after falls or other serious injuries.

Shoulder Separation
Shoulder separations are the result of a disruption of the acromioclavicular joint. This injury can cause pain and swelling of the shoulder.

Biceps Tendon Rupture
A proximal biceps tendon rupture occurs when the tendon of the biceps muscle ruptures at the shoulder joint. This may cause pain and a lump in the arm.

SLAP Lesion
The SLAP (Superior Labrum Anterior-Posterior) lesion of the shoulder is a type of labral tear. The most common cause is a fall onto an outstretched hand.

Bankart Lesion - Labral Tear
A Bankart lesion is a type of labral tear most commonly due to dislocation of the shoulder. The tear is mostly at the shoulder joint at the labrum or the protective region of the shoulder. Bankart lesions cause problems of persistent instability.

Floating Shoulder
A floating shoulder is an injury pattern characterized by a clavicle fracture and a fracture of the scapula. These injuries cause a free floating shoulder and can lead to neurovascular problems.

Broken Collarbone - Clavicle Fracture
A broken collarbone is a break in the clavicle, the bone in your upper chest that connects your breast bone (sternum) to part of your shoulder blade (scapula).

Rotator Cuff Injury
A rotator cuff injury is a tear or inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons in the shoulder. Rotator cuff injury is known by several names, including pitcher's shoulder, swimmer's shoulder, and tennis shoulder. The tendons of four muscles make up the rotator cuff. Rotator cuff tendonitis is an inflammation of the shoulder tendons while a rotator cuff tear is a ripping of one or more of the tendons.
