What Is A Frozen Shoulder?

Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body, offering a range of motion that other body parts cannot come close to matching. Unfortunately, this greater mobility comes at the price of increased susceptibility. The shoulder has so many interdependent moving parts that it does not have much stability.

One injury that can result from this weakness in the joint is adhesive capsulitis, more commonly referred to as frozen shoulder because it causes the motion of the shoulder to become very limited. The loss in range of motion is often preceded by a gradual increase in pain. The condition can cause many daily tasks, such as reaching for a plate off a shelf, to become painful and strenuous.

Choosing the Right Shoulder Sling

The shoulder is a commonly injured joint and to effectively rest it following aggravation, a shoulder sling is required.

The glenohumeral joint is the articulation between the ball at the top of the arm bone and the socket that is part of the shoulder blade. It offers a very high level of mobility, allowing movement in all directions but this freedom comes at the expense of stability. The shoulder relies on a number of soft tissue structures to maintain this stability and these are prone to injury. The muscles of the rotator cuff are often torn and in many cases require surgery to repair them. Shoulder dislocations are common and once the joint has been displaced the first time, the risk of it happening again is greatly increased. Apart from these significant injuries, the shoulder can also suffer mild strains and sprains following falls or contact sports. Read more…

What Sort Of Shoulder Exercises Help With Rotator Cuff Problems?

There are a huge number of different shoulder exercises recommended to anyone reading up on the subject on the internet but which type of exercise should you be doing if you have suffered a rotator cuff injury.

The rotator cuff is a group of four small muscles that help to strengthen and stabilise the shoulder. These muscles tend to work on autopilot, coming into effect whenever we move our shoulders. They help to pull the arm into the shoulder stopping it from becoming dislocated and stabilising the joint as we move it. Unlike some of the larger muscle groups involved in shoulder movement we tend to be unaware of our rotator cuff until something goes wrong, but when it does we are very quickly reminded how important a job this small group of muscles do.

Rotator Cuff Muscles – An In-Depth Guide

he rotator cuff muscles are a group of four skeletal muscles located in the shoulder. They are the Subscapularis, the Infraspinitus, the Teres Minor and the Supraspinitus (SItS). They all connect the Scapula or shoulder blade to the head of the Humerus or upper arm bone.

Rotator cuff anatomy is unlike anything else in the human body. Each of the muscles has a distinct job to do. At the same time they all work together to provide stability and strength to the shoulder. Read more…

What Is Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome?

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome is one of a group of terms used to describe the pain and discomfort caused by abnormal tracking of the kneecap.

The patella is an example of a sesamoid bone. This is a bone designed to protect tendons as they move over a joint, in this case the knee. The patella slides up and down in a groove at the bottom of the femur called the trochlea and in normal movement, the patella glides centered within the groove. Read more…

Wrist Fracture – Try Physiotherapy

Every winter the weather gets cold and icy at some time and we realise that the time has come when we are less safe out and about, that season when people start to slip and fall. Falls on an outstretched hand (FOOSH) are a very common injury and often cause a fracture of the end of the forearm bones, a fracture routinely known as a wrist or colles fracture. The fracture can be insignificant or very major requiring screws and plates to realign and fix it in position. Physiotherapists assess and plan rehabilitation of the wrist, hand and forearm.

The wrist is the most commonly damaged part of the arm and three quarters of wrist injuries consists of radius and ulna fractures. Minor injuries may have just a crack and remain in position and as injuries become more serious they involve larger numbers of fragments and more marked displacement. As the person falls on the hand the results depend to some degree on age: children develop a greenstick fracture (a kink in the bone), adolescents separate the growth plate from the bone and adults fracture the radius and ulna in the last inch near the wrist.

Shoulder Strengthening Exercises – Everyone Should Do Them

One thing I have learnt is that if you don’t look after your shoulders, sooner or later they are going to let you down. It’s not their fault; they’re just a dodgy design. In the designer’s defence, the specification was quite demanding. “We want a joint that can turn 360 degrees in any direction; we want to be able to wave our arms about, throw things as far as we can, lift heavy objects, swing from our arms from side to side, do hand stands occasionally, hang from our arms when climbing, oh yes, and I would quite like to be able to reach behind me without difficulty.”

And just to make the design even more demanding, I would like this joint to be low maintenance as well!

Which is where most of us go wrong! Your shoulder joint is not low maintenance. If you put that many demands on a joint you need to look after it. So what does looking after a shoulder joint involve? Read more…
