Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is swelling, inflammation, and subsequent tearing of the tendons in your forearm.
Treatment of neurogenic scapular winging: a systematic review on outcomes after non-surgical management and tendon transfer surgery.
Scapular winging is a rare condition of the shoulder girdle which presents challenging treatment decisions for clinicians. To inform clinical practice, clinicians need guidance on what the best treatment decision is for their patients and such recommendations should be based on the total evidence available.
There has been a recent increase in ulnar collateral ligament injuries. These injuries typically occur in overhead athletes and baseball players, but can occur in athletes at all competition levels.
Biceps tendinitis is most often the result of everyday wear and tear on the muscle. In terms of sports, weightlifting is one of the high risk activities for biceps tendinitis, but this condition is a common sports injury that can happen to pros and amateurs alike.
Shoulder surgery is often necessary for many common shoulder problems. Procedures can range from minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to more traditional open surgeries using a scalpel and sutures.1 Arthroscopic surgery is a type of surgery where instruments are inserted through keyhole-sized incisions in your shoulder.
Pain between the shoulders is common: As many as one in 10 men and one in five women experience upper back pain, according to a 2015 journal article in Occupational Medicine
The risk for serious adverse events associated with common shoulder arthroscopy procedures is low, according to a study published online July 6 in The BMJ.
A new way to regenerate muscle could help repair the damaged shoulders of millions of people every year. The technique uses advanced materials to encourage muscle growth in rotator cuff muscles.
To compensate for the shallow shoulder socket, the joint has a cuff of cartilage called a labrum that forms a cup for the end of the arm bone. When a patient sustains a shoulder injury, it is possible that the patient has a labral tear. The labrum also becomes more brittle with age and can fray and tear as part of the aging process.
Total shoulder arthroplasty vs hemiarthroplasty in patients with primary glenohumeral arthritis with intact rotator cuff: Meta-analysis using the ratio of means
Glenohumeral arthritis is a degenerative disease of the shoulder joint. When the rotator cuff is intact there is limited evidence in existing literature in superiority of outcomes between total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) and hemiarthroplasty (HA).
