Shoulder injuries are frequently caused by athletic activities like excessive, cyclical, overhead motion that involves swimming, tennis, cricket, and weightlifting. Injuries can also occur during everyday activities such washing clothes, hanging curtains, and trimming grass. 
Normally most problems in the shoulder involve the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, rather than the bones. Athletes are especially affected by shoulder problems. In athletes, shoulder problems occur slowly through repetitive, intensive and hectic training routines.

Usually people don't put much concern to the shoulder problem and they "ignore "the problem. This will results in steady pain, weakness in the arm, or limitation of joint motion. 

The main symptoms of shoulder injury are:

  • Pain and gentleness in your shoulder ,particularly when you lift your arm out to the side, reach behind you or lift or pull a heavy weight.
  • Pain at night, particularly when you sleep on the affected side.
  • A feeling of weakness in your shoulder.
  • Being unable to move your shoulder as you usually would.

Shoulder problems are classified into three categories:

  • Instability: Shoulder instability is a problem that occurs when the structures that surround the shoulder joint do not synchronize to the ball within its socket. If the joint is too loose, it may change its position, results shoulder subluxation. If the joint comes completely out of place, this is called a shoulder dislocation.
  • Impingement: Impingement is the over rubbing of the shoulder muscles touching the top part of the shoulder region. Impingement problem may occur due to the frequent activities like excessive, repetitive and hectic shoulder motions.
  • Rotator cuff: Rotator cuff tear is an extremely common complaint. Because we use our shoulders for so many common activities, it gets restless and starts to bear strain. The rotator cuff is the group of four tendons and muscles that surround the shoulder joint.

Post operative care for the shoulder injuries 
When your operation is finished, a sterile dressing will be used to cover the incisions made in your skin by the surgeon. After two to three days the wound is usually sealed tight as it begins to heal, and the dressing can be safely removed. Make sure that you follow your surgeon's advice on this matter. Although the wound is sealed, it is not yet very strong, and it takes several weeks or months for the skin to regain some of the strength that it had before the surgery. 
Shoulder injury or injuries can be cured under the monitoring of Dr. Mohan and team.
