Shoulder Arthritis

Shoulder Arthritis

Although most people think of the shoulder as several joints, there are really two joints in the area of the shoulder. One is located where the collarbone (clavicle) meets the tip of the shoulder bone (acromion). This is called the acromioclavicular or AC joint. The junction of the upper arm bone (humerus) with the shoulder blade (scapula) […]

Acromio-Clavicular Joint (ACJ) Dislocation

Acromio-Clavicular Joint (ACJ) Dislocation

A shoulder separation is a fairly common injury, especially in certain sports. Most shoulder separations are actually injuries to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint. The AC joint is the connection between thescapula (shoulder blade) and the clavicle (collarbone). Shoulder dislocations and AC joint separations are often mistaken for each other. But they are very different injuries. This guide will help you […]

Shoulder Instability

Shoulder Instability

The shoulder is the most moveable joint in your body. It helps you lift your arm, rotate it, and reach up over your head. It is able to turn in many directions. This greater range of motion, however, results in less stability. Shoulder instability occurs when the head of the upper arm bone is forced […]

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Arthritis

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Arthritis

The shoulder joint is formed at the junction of three bones: the collarbone (clavicle), the shoulder blade (scapula), and the arm bone (humerus). The scapula and clavicle form the socket of the joint, and the humerus has a round head that fits within this socket. The end of the scapula is called the acromion, and […]

Dislocated Shoulder

Dislocated Shoulder

A dislocated shoulder usually happens after a heavy fall onto the arm. It takes 12-16 weeks to heal after the arm has been reconnected. Dislocating your shoulder means your arm bone has popped out of its shoulder socket and the supporting tissues may have overstretched or torn. The shoulder is one of the easiest joints to dislocate. […]

These muscles and their tendons work together with the deltoid muscle to provide motion and strength to the shoulder for all waist-level and shoulder-level or above activities. Rotator cuff tendonitis is an inflammation of a […]
