Shoulder Joint The shoulder is a ball and socket joint with three main bones. These three main bones are the humerus (long arm bone), clavicle (bridge bone), and scapula (scapula). These three main bones are connected by a layer of cartilage. The glenohumeral joint consists of the upper part of the humerus bone and the outer edge of the scapula. This joint is called the shoulder joint. This joint arm is very important in body mobility. The shoulder has a versatile range of motion. Therefore, the discomfort that will occur here directly affects the quality of life. Shoulder problems are detailed in the sub-headings as impingement, frozen shoulder (rotatorcuff), tendon rupture.
What is Shoulder Impingement Syndrome (Impingement)?
Rotator cuff is a disease caused by friction between the humerus and the upper outer edge of the shoulder. This friction causes swelling and contraction in that area. This disease occurs when there is a compression of the tendon or bursa in the shoulder joints in the shoulder. This causes pain and irritation.
Rest, medical treatments and physical therapy are mostly recommended for this disease. In our physical therapy center, this process is carried out by expert physiotherapists with treatment methods such as TENS, hot-cold application, ultrasound.
What is a rotator cuff (frozen shoulder)?
Pain in the shoulder is manifested by pain that increases especially when the arm is raised above the head, weakness in the arm and shoulder pain at night. When the severity of these pains increases and the pain affects your quality of life, it is recommended to consult with a physical therapy and rehabilitation specialist. Surgical operation can be performed when medical treatment and physical therapy do not work. An operation called subacromial decompression is performed with a device called arthroscopy. In our physical therapy center, this process is carried out by expert physiotherapists with treatment methods such as TENS, hot-cold application, ultrasound.
What is a Tendon Tear?
Tendons are fibrous soft tissues that connect muscles to bones. In some cases, tendons may be injured, damaged, or ruptured or torn. In such cases, surgical operation is required to tie the tendon. Tendon injuries (stretches and small, partial tears) are common injuries that are often treated non-surgically with the RICE method (rest, icing, compression, and elevation) and perhaps physical therapy. In our physical therapy center, this process is carried out by expert physiotherapists with treatment methods such as TENS, hot-cold application, ultrasound.
