Shoulder injuries treatment

Winter is finally coming to successfully accomplish all of these activities, we must have good shoulder function.

The shoulder is a uniquely designed joint. It allows for a wide range of mobility. However, its lack of surface contact means that when a person moves a lot, their shoulder is susceptible tor cuff and scapular muscles.

As a result of the unique shoulder design, which includes a lack of joint surface contact, many people injure their shoulders. This especially true when they are playing overhead sports such as basketball or tennis, when they collide with others, or when they fall.

Shoulder injuries fall into two categories. They can either be acute, or they can be chronic. Many who suffer shoulder injuries also deal with referred pain. This is pain in the arm or in the neck that comes as a result of a shoulder injury.

Shoulder injuries can happen as a result of trauma. For example, a person may injure their shoulder if they trip and fall while playing basketball. Or shoulder injuries can come as a result of biomechanical malfunctions. If a person plays tennis for eight hours a day, their shoulder will eventually give out. Regardless of the reasons for the injury, it is essential that all shoulder injuries are cared for appropriately and promptly.

In order tor cuff injuries, fractures, dislocated joints, frozen shoulder, and Labrum injuries.

If you injure your shoulder, there are things that you can do before you visit a medical professional. These steps will help you to reduce inflammation, minimize the pain, and most importantly prevent further shoulder damage.

First, put ice on your shoulder. Never put it directly on your skin, but instead place the ice between multiple layers of clothing.

Second, rest. Your shoulder is already injured and exerting yourself more may increase your risk of further injury.

Finally, immobilize your shoulder by using a sling.

Anytime you sustain a shoulder injury, it is wise to recovery and regaining your functional independence.

The spring and summer months provide a welcome break from winter’s cold weather. Get out there and enjoy the weather.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
