Shoulder osteoarthritis is a condition resulting from the gradual breakdown of the articular cartilage and other joint tissues in the shoulder area. Symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness, and even bone spurs in the area. It is extremely common in the aging population.
ROTATOR CUFF TEAR
Have you been told that surgery is your only option to repair the torn rotator cuff in your shoulder?
Your arm is kept in your shoulder socket by your rotator cuff, which is a group of four muscles that come together as tendons that surround the head of your upper arm bone, the humerus. The rotator cuff attaches this bone to the shoulder bone to rotate and lift the arm. There is a lubricating sac that allows the rotator cuff tendons to freely slide when the arm is moved—when the rotator cuff tendons are injured, this sac can become inflamed and very painful. Usually, all of this pain involving the rotator cuff is a result of either an injury or degeneration.
Bicep tendonitis is an injury to the shoulder usually as a result of overuse or repetitive motion. In this condition, tendons that connect the bicep muscle at the front of your arm to your shoulder are inflamed. Symptoms can include pain, weakness or tenderness while moving the upper arm, or turn your wrist from a palm-up position to a palm-down position.
You may have been recommended to have surgery to treat your bicep tendonitis. Sometimes these surgeries do not end up leading to better mobility and function, and recovery can be long, painful, and require extensive physical therapy.
SHOULDER LABRUM TEAR
Have you been told that surgery is your only option to repair your labral tear in your shoulder?
The labrum is the lip around the socket of the main shoulder joint. A shoulder labral tear can be caused by a direct injury to the shoulder or as the result of prolonged wear and tear. The common surgical intervention for labral tears often involves an invasive procedure where the biceps tendon is disconnected and reattached at another location. These surgeries, moreover, often don’t lead to better mobility and function while recovery is long, painful, and requires extensive physical therapy.
