Common types of shoulder injuries
The shoulder is a joint that contains 3 bones and is surrounded by tendons, muscles, ligaments, and nerves. If any of these components is injured during an accident, it can cause severe pain and limit mobility. The most common types of shoulder injuries include:
Muscle sprains and strains
Rotator cuff tears
Dislocated or separated shoulder
How are shoulder injuries diagnosed?
The physician will begin by conducting some physical examinations to look out for common signs and symptoms of a shoulder injury. X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans can also be used to confirm the diagnosis.
Shoulder injury patients will receive different forms of treatment depending on the severity of the injury. For instance, the patient may recover after a series of physician-recommended strengthening and stretching exercises. Pain medication and anti-inflammatory medicines are also prescribed to deal with the symptoms of shoulder injuries. Steroid injections, slings, and other devices to immobilize the shoulder can be considered for treatment and managing of symptoms. Heat and cold packs can also be used to provide some form of temporary relief of pain and stiffness. Medications for shoulder injuries can have side effects which the patient should be made aware of before treatment.
In severe and persistent cases, patients will require surgery. Surgery may be required if:
The dislocations are frequent or recurring
Acute or chronic rotator cuff tears are present
There’s severe joint damage
Consequences of a shoulder injury
Shoulder injuries can cause:
Persistent pain deep in the joints and extending to the upper part of the arm.
