The most common cause of acromioclavicular joint arthritis is wear and tear through over use. For this reason it is most common in people who are aged 50 or older and in athletes who place a lot of stress on the joint.
The most common shoulder conditions affecting the biceps are injuries to the cartilage and tendons that attach the biceps muscle to the shoulder bones. These include SLAP lesions, tendonitis, and tendon rupture.
Calcific tendonitis is a build-up of calcium deposits within one or more of the four tendons that meet at the top of the shoulder joint. Together these four tendons are known as the rotator cuff.
Frozen shoulder is a condition where the ball and socket joint of the shoulder appears to "freeze". This causes loss of motion with stiffness in all directions. Typically the shoulder joint is stiff and initially painful.
Glenohumeral arthritis is also known as shoulder arthritis. It is a progressive type of arthritis that is normally caused by damage to the cartilage surfaces of the shoulder's glenohumeral (ball and socket) joint.
This is when the ball of your shoulder slips in certain position or completely comes out of joint (dislocates). There are a number of types of instability and it can get worse with time.
The rotator cuff is the group of four tendons that surround the shoulder joint and control its movement. The tendons can become inflamed, degenerate or tear and can lead to pain and weakness, particularly with sudden movements.
Snapping scapula is a general term applied to a range of disorders that can result in a painful clicking or snapping sensation in the shoulder blade (scapula).
Subacromial impingement is a condition that causes pain in the shoulder and upper arm. It happens when the tendons of the shoulder joint are strained or injured.
Winging scapula is the description for a condition where the shoulder blade protrudes from your back, giving the impression of a wing. In most cases, only one shoulder blade is affected.
