Because the shoulder is the joint of the body that has a greater movement, it needs a large number of structures, such as ligaments, bones, muscles and tendons, to be able to perform even the most basic movement such as eating, dressing, grooming , etc
The part of the shoulder that is most frequently affected is the rotator cuff tendons. For this type of surgery it is extremely important to have a trauma doctor, who is a specialist in shoulder surgeries.
For any shoulder surgery, a small camera called an arthroscope is used, which helps to find or repair all the tissues that are around or within the shoulder joint. The arthroscope is inserted through a small incision in the skin.
Of the most common problems that occur in the shoulder, is that of the rotator cuff. This is a group of muscles and tendons that form a cuff over the shoulder joint, which allows the arm to be supported and to move in different directions.
This shoulder surgery seeks to unite the edges of the muscles, thus gluing the tendon to the bone with sutures. In certain occasions, small rivets are used, these can be made of metal or plastic, also called anchoring with sutures to facilitate the tendon to stick to the bone.
This shoulder surgery is required when there is a pinching of the tendons in the rotator cuff, as the area between the rotator cuff and the acromion is reduced. This area can be reduced due to the increase in volume of the parts that make up this area.
There are two signs of shoulder instability that usually appear when the arm is placed in certain positions. One of these would be injuries, such as shoulder dislocation. On the other hand, laxity could also be present, which is when the shoulder joint is loose.
In the shoulder joint we can find three bones: the wet one, the clavicle and the shoulder blade. Because the shoulder is one of the joints that move the most within the body, this joint can become very unstable, so it can become extremely easy for an injury to occur, such as:
A sprain shows up when there is a stretch or twist of a ligament. Contortions, falls, or bumps can cause these types of sprains, causing swelling, pain, bruising, and the inability to move the shoulder.
The shoulder is made up of three bones: the shoulder blade, the clavicle, and the wet bone (the ball-shaped upper arm bone). This sphere is located within the hole formed by the shoulder blade, and when this sphere comes out of its place it is when a dislocation occurs. This can be partial or total.
Also known as inflammation of the tendons. Tendons are strong cords of tissue that help connect muscles to bones. Tenditis occurs when an injury occurs frequently in a certain joint.
Also known as inflammation of the bursa. A bursa is a small bag that is responsible for protecting and cushioning the bones, as well as other parts of the body such as muscles, skin, and tendons. When there is inflammation in these bursae it is called bursitis and it is created when a joint is used a lot. Some of the symptoms of bursitis are pain and inflammation.
Frozen shoulder also known as adhesive capsulitis or periarthritis of the shoulder. This symptom is shown when there is an inflammation of the connective tissue, which occupies the entire shoulder joint, producing stiffness and pain.
As a result of blows, demands, accidents or tractions of great magnitude causing a bone or cartilage breakdown, exceeding the resistance and elasticity of the bones.
Often the symptoms are pain and stiffness in the body or have trouble moving the shoulder. There are a large number of types of arthritis where the vast majority cause joint pain and swelling. If this arthritis does not resolve in time, it is possible that over time there will be a serious injury.
