Pain between the shoulders is common: As many as one in 10 men and one in five women experience upper back pain, according to a 2015 journal article in Occupational Medicine.
Shoulder surgery is often necessary for many common shoulder problems. Procedures can range from minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to more traditional open surgeries using a scalpel and sutures.
Tendons are pieces of connective tissue that bind your muscles to bones. Like any part of the body, injury or overuse can lead to pain or inflammation in your tendons. This condition is called tendinitis. Biceps tendinitis is most often the result of everyday wear and tear on the muscle.
Most exercise-related pain is dull and spreads over a larger area of your arms or legs. This is normal. When it seems to be sharp pain focused in one spot that you can pinpoint with a finger, it may indicate a muscle strain of a tendon inflammation.
Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is swelling, inflammation, and subsequent tearing of the tendons in your forearm.These tissues, which attach muscle to bone, can become overtaxed with repetitive use, causing an aching or burning pain that gets worse when you grip or lift something.
Surgeons have long advised patients to stop smoking cigarettes for several weeks before their operations to lower the risk of complications. But what about weed? New research has found reason for worry: Marijuana users had higher infection rates after minimally invasive knee and shoulder procedures.
Acromioclavicular osteoarthritis (AO) is a common type of arthritis that affects the shoulder. Although AO is not as common as osteoarthritis of the knee or hip, it does affect a significant number of older adults.
Impingement of the ulnar nerve causes a radiating pain or numbness in the pinky finger, ring finger, and edge of the hand.
Elbow heterotopic ossification after distal biceps tendon repair presenting as median nerve neuropathy: A case report
Heterotopic ossification of the elbow is a rare complication of distal biceps tendon repair operations. It may be entirely asymptomatic or present with symptoms and signs such as swelling, erythema, pain, palpable mass, vascular and nerve compression or joint movement restriction. We present a case of heterotopic ossification presenting as median nerve neuropathy after distal biceps tendon repair using a limited volar single incision.
A forearm fracture occurs when there is a fracture of one or both of the bones of the forearm. The two bones of the forearm are the radius and the ulna. Both bones are important for proper motion of the elbow and wrist joints, and both bones serve as important attachments to muscles of the upper extremity.
