Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, occurs when inflammation and scar tissue invade the shoulder joint. It can start with inflammation of the joint that leads to scarring, or in some cases the scarring happens with little inflammation.
The shoulder joint is comprised of the socket, which looks like a golf tee, and the upper part of the arm, the humeral head, which looks like a golf ball. Injury to shoulder ligaments and labrum can often render the shoulder joint unstable.
The Latarjet procedure may be reliable and safe for the treatment of shoulder instability among athletes who participate in high-demand and high-risk activities, according to results presented here.
Lower-than-normal levels of sex hormones can increase the risk of shoulder injuries in men and women, according to a new study.
