About Shoulder

The shoulder is one of the largest joints in the body. It is made up of three bones: the humerus (upper arm bone), scapula (shoulder blade) and clavicle (collarbone). The shoulder also contains several other important structures, including the rotator cuff (muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder and give it support), the bursa (a sac of fluid that cushions the tendons of the rotator cuff) and the labrum (a cup of cartilage that the humerus fits into).

Common Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder injuries are often caused by activities that involve repetitive overhead motion, such as weightlifting, tennis, volleyball, swimming, baseball/softball, basketball or carpentry. They can also be caused by trauma, such as a fall or motor vehicle accident. Common shoulder injuries include:

  • A clavicle fracture, or broken collarbone. Clavicle fractures can be a slight break or many breaks. Most clavicle fractures can be treated with sling immobilization.
  • A shoulder fracture, which is a break that can result from a fall on the shoulder, a motor vehicle accident or contact sports. Treatment options can range from a simple sling to open reduction internal fixation to total shoulder replacement.
  • A rotator cuff injury, or injury to the group of muscles and tendons that connect your shoulder blade to your upper arm. Common rotator cuff injuries include a rotator cuff tear, tendinitis and bursitis.
  • AC joint separation, which happens when the clavicle or collarbone separates from the acromion (the highest point of the shoulder blade). This is an extremely painful injury that may require surgery to repair, depending on the severity of the separation.
  • Shoulder dislocation, which happens when the ball of the upper arm bone is partially or completely moved out of the shoulder socket.
  • Multidirectional instability, or looseness in the main joint of the shoulder that enables it to move too far in more than one direction.
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome, which occurs when the acromion on the top edge of your shoulder blade pinches or rubs on the rotator cuff tendon that slides beneath it.
  • Frozen shoulder / adhesive capsulitis, a condition that causes shoulder stiffness and pain. A frozen shoulder develops slowly over three stages: freezing, frozen and thawing.
  • A labrum tear, which is a tear in the cartilage found in the shoulder joint. The labrum is similar to a gasket that surrounds the socket. The most common types of labral tears are a SLAP (superior labrum anterior to posterior) and Bankart (when an anterior shoulder dislocation causes a tear).
  • SLAP tears, which occur when the top or superior part of the labrum is torn. These can occur in the front (anterior) and posterior (back) of the point where the labrum attaches to the biceps tendon.
  • A rotator cuff tear, or tear to the group of muscles and tendons that provide support and enable mobility in the shoulder.
  • Shoulder arthritis, or damage to the cartilage of the shoulder joint. Types of arthritis that affect the shoulder include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, posttraumatic arthritis, shoulder cuff tear arthropathy and avascular necrosis.
  • Shoulder cuff tear arthropathy, which is a form of arthritis that develops after the shoulder has lost the cartilage that covers the joint surface as a result of a chronic massive tear of the rotator cuff.

Shoulder Surgery

At times a shoulder injury will require surgery to fully recover function and mobility. Dr. Cohen is a top orthopedic surgeon who frequently performs:

  • Shoulder replacement
    • Anatomic total shoulder replacements
    • Reverse total shoulder replacement
  • Revision shoulder surgery
    • Failed fracture repairs
    • Failed anatomic total shoulder replacements
