You probably don't think about your shoulders much, until you suddenly experience pain in one of them. Shoulder pain can make a simple act — brushing and drying your hair, reaching behind your back to fasten a bra, or grabbing something overhead — seem like a monumental task.
The rotator cuff muscles can be prone to inflammation and tears during overhead activities or due to wear and tear. An important way to reduce tears or rotator cuff injury is by strengthening these muscles.
Younger, active adults who underwent anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) with an inlay glenoid component and stemless ovoid humeral head experienced improved clinical outcomes and a high rate of return to occupational and sporting activity, with no reoperations or radiographic loosening, according to a study published online by the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery
Published results showed no significant differences in clinical outcomes at 12 months among patients with acute traumatic rotator cuff tears who received either surgical treatment or nonoperative treatment.
Internal impingement is a specific type of shoulder injury that is seen primarily in throwing athletes.
