Common Shoulder Injury / Shoulder Conditions
There are many different shoulder injuries and conditions. Some of the most common shoulder conditions include the following:
Rotator Cuff Tears
A severe injury – falling, sports-related, or car accident – can cause a rotator cuff tear. A common cause of a rotator cuff tear is a prolonged breakdown or degeneration of the tendon. Additionally, symptoms include:
- Night pain
- Pain during activity
- Radiating pain
This pain travels from your shoulder down to your arm. If diagnosed early on, however, rotator cuff tears can be treated with activity modifications. Although light therapy, and in some cases, a cortisone injection have also been effective. If the tear doesn’t respond to non-operative treatment, though, rotator cuff surgery may be an option.
