Shoulder Treatment Around Paramus: Common Causes of Pain

All patients with persisting symptoms should receive an evaluation from an orthopaedic specialist who can determine the precise cause. Nevertheless, the list below of shoulder conditions can give you an idea of the types of shoulder injuries our doctors commonly see.

  • Shoulder arthritis: Degenerative joint disease (otherwise known as osteoarthritis) is the most common type of shoulder arthritis. With this condition, the cartilage of the joint wears away overtime, leaving bare bone exposed within the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis is another common type, causing inflammation on the lining of the joint.

  • Shoulder impingement syndrome: When the tendons of the rotator cuff become compressed between the humerus bone and the shoulder blade, patients develop painful inflammation. In the process, the tendons weaken, and this may eventually cause a torn rotator cuff. Shoulder impingement syndrome is commonly seen in athletes, particularly swimmers, baseball, and softball players.

  • Bursitis: The space above the rotator cuff muscles and tendons is filled by a bursa, a fluid sac. This sac becomes inflamed with repetitive overhead activity or overuse of the arm and shoulder. Other symptoms include pain and immobility of the shoulder or arm.

  • Shoulder dislocation: As the most mobile joint in the body, the shoulder is also the most vulnerable to a dislocation. A dislocated shoulder is caused by either gradual instability or a traumatic incident, and symptoms include deformity, numbness, inflammation, and bruising.

  • Broken collarbone: The collarbone, also called the clavicle, is located in the upper chest and connects the breastbone to the shoulder. A broken collarbone is common for adolescents and athletes, often occurring from a fall, a hit directly on the shoulder, or an automobile accident.

When diagnosing a patient’s shoulder condition, a doctor will conduct a physical examination and ask for a complete medical history. The doctor may confirm her or his diagnosis by ordering imaging tests, such as x-rays or MRIs. Once an official diagnosis is determined, the patient and doctor will discuss an individualized treatment plan.

  • Cartilage Restoration Institute

    This is a center where patients can go to have their disabled joint biological resurfaced, realigned, and stabilized without having the joint replaced by artificial materials such as metal and plastic. It is well known that the outcomes of patients under the age of 50 undergoing artificial joint replacement are not as good as we would like. Therefore we feel the future of Orthopaedics is to try to restore a joint back to its original anatomy by realignment, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage restoration.
