"Very common in Wrestlers, Kabaddi players, Basketball, Volleyball, weight lifters and overhead racquet sports and because of trauma or fall in any contact sports like football"
A shoulder dislocation is a serious injury that requires medical attention. A physician can perform a physical examination and often order X-rays to look for the degree of damage done to the ligaments, cartilage and bone in the shoulder joint. Dislocations typically occur when a large amount of force is used to move the Shoulder in a vulnerable position. This can happen with contact sports such as football or hockey or when falling on an outstretched hand - for example, while playing basketball.
If this is the first dislocation, a healthcare provider can usually reduce it by manipulating the Shoulder back into place. However, if there is significant soft tissue injury (labral tears or capsular laxity) or bone damage, arthroscopic surgery to reinsert the capsulolabral complex and fix any bone injuries is required (Bankart repair with or without capsular plication). It is important for patients to realize that they will have some risk of recurrent dislocations even after successful treatment. This is particularly true for young athletes who participate in a sport with overhead and collision activity.
"More commonly Supraspinatus/Infraspinatus as repetitive action and disturbed biomechanics in overhead athletes OR as a result of trauma/fall when it can rupture Subscapularis which is very commonly missed!"
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that hold the head of the shoulder bone in the socket (glenoid fossa). When this group of tendons tear, it can cause pain with certain movements and make it hard to do normal activities. These tears are more common in people who play sports that involve repetitive arm movements or those who lift heavy objects.
The most common rotator cuff tear is called a partial or intra-substance tear. This type of tear damages the soft tissue but does not completely sever it. Another common injury is a full-thickness tear, which divides the tendon into two pieces. This type of tear can lead to pain with certain movements, including lifting the arm overhead. It can also cause shoulder weakness, especially if the damage is long-lasting.
Most of the time, when these tendons are injured, they are repaired with surgery. This surgery can be done using arthroscopy, which involves small incisions and a video camera to guide the repair. Physical therapy starts after the surgery to help you learn how to move your Shoulder again and build strength.
"A tear of the biceps tendon attachment from the top of the socket of shoulder joint. Very common in Cricketers. They can bat but can’t bowl or throw overhead."
Patients who have shoulder pain that increases with overhead arm movement, such as when throwing or working, may be suffering from a superior labral tear. These injuries often occur in athletes who use repeated overhead arm motion, such as weight-lifters or tennis players. They can also result from a sudden forceful motion, such as falling onto an outstretched hand or lifting a heavy object quickly. MRI scans can help with diagnosis as the test can better visualize soft tissues like the labrum. A dye can be injected into the Shoulder to help make the injury show up more clearly.
Performing the Speed and Yergason tests can help diagnose this type of injury, as well as the grade of the tear (picture 2 and movie 2). The SLAP tear is generally thought to be a degenerative lesion rather than a traumatic one. Surgical repair of this injury is usually done using arthroscopy, where a camera is inserted into the shoulder joint and guided by miniature surgical instruments. Recovery from this surgery is slow, but newer techniques are allowing competitive athletes to return to their sports within six months of surgery.
"the Absorption of the outer end of the collar bone because of stress, as known as Distal Clavicular Osteolysis. Very common in athletes who lift weights or do body building. Also common in boxers."
Weight lifters are the most likely group to develop a condition called distal clavicular osteolysis. It occurs when heavy stress over months on the AC joint (where the clavicle/collarbone meets the shoulder blade) leads to bone resorption at the end of the collarbone. This pain is usually worse during exercise but can occur in other activities as well. A popping/clicking sensation while moving the Shoulder and tenderness over the AC joint can confirm the diagnosis.
Over time, this repetitive stress results in small fractures of the end of the collar bone, causing it to swell and eventually break down. This is different from AC joint arthritis, which is a normal wear and tear in older individuals. Typically, this condition can be managed with rest from any exercises that stress the joint, physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications. In severe cases, surgery may be needed. To prevent this injury, it is important to have balanced exercises with an equal amount of pressing exercises and horizontal pulling exercises such as rows, face pulls, and single-arm chin-ups.
It is not tear but inflammation of bursa between the rotator cuff tendons & shoulder blade bone. Usually good guided physiotherapy to correct the faulty biomechanics of the shoulder resolves the problem and no surgery is needed
Get a consultation for shoulder arthroscopy surgery in South Delhi, The Shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body and, therefore, potentially unstable. Sports that place inordinate stress on the shoulder joint, especially contact sports such as tackling and throwing, can lead to injury. The Shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula) and your collarbone (clavicle). While muscles and cartilage reinforce the Shoulder, it is still vulnerable to injury. Book your appointment for shoulder fracture in South Delhi.
