Clavicle fractures, or broken collarbones, are typically treated without surgery. There is some evidence, though, to suggest that clavicle fractures may heal faster and more predictably when surgical repair is done.
Results presented at the American Society for Surgery of the Hand Annual Meeting showed conservative treatment may lead to resolution of olecranon bursitis without complications, infections, atrophy, skin depigmentation or surgery.
If you have a frozen shoulder, then you understand how frustrating the pain and limited mobility in your shoulder and arm can be. It may seem almost impossible to accomplish simple tasks like dressing and bathing. A frozen shoulder seems to come from nowhere. Often there is little or no injury, and there are really no specific shoulder tests to determine if you have a frozen shoulder. The sign of a frozen shoulder is easy to spot: limited, painful range of motion (ROM) in your shoulder.
Calcific tendonitis results from the buildup of calcium in the shoulder, causing pain and limited range of motion. Symptoms can often be treated with physical therapy to restore the shoulder's range of motion and improve rotator cuff strength.
A Hill-Sachs injury to the shoulder can occur due to a shoulder dislocation, resulting in a Hill-Sachs lesion or a Hill-Sachs deformity of the head of the humerus bone (the upper arm bone).As the bones in the shoulder joint dislocate, the round humeral head (the ball on the top of the arm bone) can strike the edge of the glenoid bone (the socket) with force. This creates a compression fracture in the humeral head. A small divot in the bone is often seen on MRI, and larger Hill-Sachs injuries may also be seen on an X-ray.
