Shoulder pain is a common problem among and men and women. It is important to diagnose shoulder pain so that proper treatment can be applied.

The AC (acromioclavicular) joint is a bone in the shoulder where the clavicle meets the shoulder blade. AC joint injuries are common among athletes.

Frozen shoulder, also referred to as adhesive capsulitis, is a medical condition that results in shoulder stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint

A rotator cuff injury is a common source of shoulder pain for men and women. The injury is most common with repetitive overhead movement and motion.

Biceps tendon injuries occur when the tendons that surround the biceps muscle becomes strained or torn, either near the shoulder or the elbow.

Shoulder arthritis is a degenerative condition where the cartilage (lining) around the shoulder joint becomes thin due to wear and tear or an injury.

Shoulder fractures can occur with a traumatic fall or a hard blow. It is usually detected on an X-ray, showing a break within the bone of the joint.

A dislocated shoulder can cause great pain and immediate immobility. It occurs when the upper arm bone comes out of the shoulder blade socket.

A broken collarbone (clavicle) occurs when the bone becomes fractured due to a hard impact, such as injuries associated with contact sports.

Tennis elbow occurs when the tendons within the elbow become inflamed. This is usually caused by overuse of the forearm muscles.

A pectoralis major tendon rupture is a rare injury associated with male and female weight lifters performing the bench press without proper form.

Arthroscopic shoulder surgery is the most common approach to treating a hurt shoulder. It is a minimally-invasive technique with excellent outcomes.

For severe injuries, especially cases where complex ruptures, fractures, or ligament damage has occurred, open shoulder surgery may be needed.

Shoulder replacement surgery uses a synthetic implant and ball to recreate the shoulder joint. This is used for complex cases or advanced arthritis.

Some rotator cuff injuries cannot be treated without surgery. Rotator cuff surgery repairs damaged tendons and restores shoulder mobility.

AC joint reconstruction surgery repairs the damaged tendons and ligaments that surround the AC joint. In some cases, a graft may be used.

Latarjet surgery is a procedure to treat recurrent shoulder dislocations, generally caused by bone loss and/or a break or fracture of the glenoid.

Clavicle fracture repair surgery is used to treat a broken collarbone when the break is too complex or severe to be treated nonsurgically.

Biceps tendon surgery repairs the tendons that surround the biceps muscle that have become torn. This can occur near the shoulder or the elbow joint.

Pectoralis major repair is a complex shoulder surgery that repairs the ligaments and tendons within the pec area, closest to the shoulder blade.

While most shoulder fractures can be treated without surgery, shoulder fracture repair (fixation surgery) may be performed to ensure proper healing.

The vast majority of shoulder injuries can be treated conservatively with nonsurgical measures such as ice, rest, medication, and a sling.

Physical therapy is important when healing an injured shoulder. It can occur as part of a nonsurgical treatment, or following a surgical procedure.
