Rotator Cuff Injuries
The rotator cuff muscles provide us the ability to reach overhead; therefore athletes who participate in sports that require a lot of overhead motions are more susceptible to such injuries. Repetitive lifting or a minor injury can also cause pain associated with the rotator cuff.
Also common are tears to the tendons of the rotator cuff, resulting in pain that radiates down the side of the arm.
Instability and dislocations
Because the shoulder is the most mobile joint in our bodies, it is very easy to dislocate. A dislocation occurs when the top of your arm bone is either partly out of the shoulder socket (partial dislocation), or when it is completely out of the socket (complete dislocation). The joint can dislocate toward the front, the back, and downward. The most common form of a dislocation is forward, usually caused by a forceful twist, a fall, or a direct blow.
Once a dislocation has taken place, the shoulder remains vulnerable, which might lead to continued dislocations. When dislocations occur repeatedly, it is called chronic shoulder instability. Another term used to describe a dislocation is a “separated shoulder.” However, the joint involved is not the shoulder joint but the acromioclavicular joint. A person suffering from a shoulder separation suffers from pain over the top of the affected shoulder sometimes accompanied by a bump.
Fractures are mostly caused by a fall or a direct blow to the shoulder area. Common shoulder fractures involve the clavicle, scapula, and humerus. These fractures result in severe pain and bruising.
