Shoulder Injury

There are a vast variety of injuries related to the shoulder.

Whether from football, boxing, or car accidents, shoulder injuries are an ever-growing problem due to the shoulder's unique ball and socket formation.

Bound by taut nerves, bones, and muscles, the shoulder has extreme flexibility, but complications often arise as people age.

Dislocated Shoulder

Dislocation is a common shoulder injury.

It usually results when a powerful force pulls the shoulder outward or when the shoulder twists out of its socket.

A partial dislocation is where part of the humerus, or the ball, rotates or is pulled out of socket.

Some people have been lucky enough to have it “popped” back in without a hospital visit, but subluxation can be extremely painful and often has immediate swelling, making it difficult for an unspecialized medic to do the task.

Numbness and bruising are also common features, and they can be intensified by muscle spasms, leading to weakness and intensified swelling.

Ligament and tendon damage have also been seen in multiple cases, with damage to the nerve developing in only the worst cases.

Shoulder separation

Shoulder separation is another frequent shoulder injury. It occurs where the collarbone and shoulder blade meet together.

The most common causes are blows to the shoulder or forcefully falling with outstretched hands.

Rotator cuff injury

The rotator cuff is composed of muscles and strong ropelike fibers, or tendons, which connect the humerus to the shoulder blade.

These tendons are very durable, but overuse, aging, and forceful events such as automobile wrecks can cause inflammation or tears.

Sports that require repeated overhead motion, like baseball, and jobs requiring heavy lifting also play a large part in rotator cuff injury. When a person is affected, they usually have trouble lifting their arm above 90 degrees.

Tendonitis, bursitis, and impingement

Tendinitis, bursitis, and impingement are three interlinked conditions.

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon. In the shoulder, it usually affects the tendons of the biceps or rotator cuff as a result of pinching from surrounding structures.

When it affects the rotator cuff, in some cases the inflamed tendon swells and gets trapped beneath the acromion, making shoulder movement extremely uncomfortable. This is called shoulder impingement.

Bursitis is inflammation of the bursae, fluid-filled sacs found adjacent to tendons or large joints. They are used to make movement easier, inflammation often occurring in conjunction with tendonitis.


Whiplash happens in accident like car crashes, sports injuries or when someone is suddenly thrown.

Whiplash symptoms include stiffness specifically in the neck and at the back of the head and headaches. Usually these signs appear after the accident happen or within a few days to two weeks.
