A shoulder fracture is a broken bone in the shoulder. These fractures typically occur after a fall or high impact collision. In most cases, surgery is not necessary to treat a shoulder fracture.
Shoulder impingements are common injuries that can take between a few weeks to 6 months to heal. In people with severe cases, this time can increase to a year.
Reasons for why your shoulder hurts can vary, but where you feel pain can help narrow down the cause. You may have an ache from something as simple as poor posture at the computer. You may have a case of shoulder bursitis due to repetitive motion, a sudden injury, or even a completely different medical condition.
Isolated posterior shoulder instability accounts for approximately 10% of shoulder instability cases. Patients may present after an acute trauma or with insidious onset and associated posterior shoulder pain. Knotless and all-suture anchor devices have become increasing popular and are often used in arthroscopic shoulder instability cases to avoid knot stacks and allow for the ability to re-tension the fixation. This technical note describes our technique for 2-portal posterior labral repair using knotless all-suture anchors with the patient in the lateral decubitus position.
