Shoulder pain has several possible causes. If shoulder pain increases as you raise your arm, and the pain is worse than when it’s straight out at 90 degrees, your problem may be impingement.
People may notice elbow bursitis as a squishy lump on the back of their elbow. Often this seemingly appears out of nowhere, or they may remember something that led to the onset of their symptoms.
Rotator cuff disease is a major medical and economic burden due to a growing aging population, but management of rotator cuff tears remains controversial. We hypothesized that there is no difference in outcomes between patients who undergo rotator cuff repair and matched patients treated nonoperatively.
Arthroscopic elbow surgery may be a treatment option for certain types of elbow pain. Arthroscopic surgery is a surgical procedure to insert a small camera inside a joint. Through other small incisions, instruments can be inserted to repair or remove damaged structures. Arthroscopic elbow surgery, often called "scoping the elbow," is a treatment option for some types of elbow pain.
Ulnar Collateral Ligament Reconstruction, or UCLR, is more commonly known as Tommy John surgery. It is a procedure that is done to repair a damaged ligament in the elbow called the ulnar collateral ligament (some use the term medial collateral ligament). This injury typically makes the elbow feel unstable and requires physical therapy. If the injury does not respond to physical therapy, surgery is typically the next treatment considered.
