Shoulder Injuries,
Disorders, and Diagnosis:

The shoulder is one of the body’s most flexible and complex joints. It contains a network of muscles, ligaments, and tendons that work together to provide mobility and stability. However, the shoulder is also at risk of injury due to its mobility.

An orthopedic doctor will assess your shoulder pain through a physical examination and diagnostic tests. They will identify the underlying cause and develop a tailored treatment plan, which may include medication, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, or, in more severe cases, surgical intervention to relieve pain and restore function.

Orthopedic shoulder surgery is a medical procedure performed to address various conditions and injuries affecting the shoulder joint, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These surgeries range from minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to more extensive open surgeries, such as rotator cuff repair, shoulder replacement, or fracture fixation. The primary goals of orthopedic shoulder surgery are to alleviate pain, restore function, and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

Adhesive capsulitis, commonly known as frozen shoulder, primarily affects individuals between the ages of 40 and 60, with a higher prevalence among women. People with diabetes have a higher risk of developing this condition, as do those who have undergone surgery or experienced prolonged immobility of the shoulder joint due to injury or medical issues. Additionally, certain thyroid disorders and cardiovascular diseases may increase the likelihood of adhesive capsulitis.

To determine if you have shoulder arthritis, consult a healthcare professional. Common symptoms include persistent shoulder pain, stiffness, swelling, and a reduced range of motion. A doctor will perform a physical examination and may use imaging tests, such as X-rays or MRIs, to confirm the diagnosis.

Individuals with advanced shoulder arthritis, irreparable rotator cuff tears, severe fractures, or those who have not found relief from conservative treatments can benefit from a shoulder replacement. This procedure can alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance patients’ overall quality of life.

A shoulder replacement procedure involves removing the damaged parts of the shoulder joint and replacing them with artificial components. The surgeon replaces the humeral head (ball) with a metal ball and the glenoid cavity (socket) with a plastic component, restoring function and reducing pain.

Recovery after shoulder replacement begins with pain management and wearing a sling to support the affected arm for several weeks. Physical therapy starts soon after surgery, initially focusing on gentle range of motion exercises, followed by progressive strengthening exercises. Patients typically notice improved function and reduced pain over time. Most individuals can resume daily activities within 4 to 6 months post-surgery. Still, a complete recovery may take up to a year or longer, depending on age, overall health, and commitment to rehabilitation.
