Shoulder Dislocation

Your shoulder is considered a ball and socket joint. If the round end of your upper arm bone (the humeral head, or "ball") partially or completely move out of alignment of the glenoid fossa (the concave part of your scapula, or the "socket"), then a shoulder dislocation has occurred. It can cause immediate deformity, impaired mobility, and pain, and may lead to residual weakness and instability. 

Shoulder Bursitis/Tendonitis

Inflammation of tendons or bursa (fluid-filled sacs that reduce friction between tendons and bones) can occur if some abnormal stress, overuse, or position occurs. This can lead to pain and swelling that reduces motion. Specific types we see include biceps tendonitis and impingement syndrome.

Rotator Cuff Strains & Tears

The many muscles around your shoulder joint provide both high degrees of mobility and stability. Overuse, repetitive motion, or even acute accidents like a sports injury or auto accident can cause partial or complete tears in the muscle fibers. 

Frozen Shoulder

This progressive and severe loss of motion in the shoulder often happens following a significant injury, illness, or infection that affects the area. A person with a frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) will have difficulty moving their shoulder in all directions, and it will feel painful and stiff. In addition to these conditions, shoulder pain can also develop if the pain is being referred from another part of the body, such as the neck (e.g., whiplash or text neck).
