Many shoulder injuries involve soft tissue damage, which affects the ligaments, tendons, and muscles in the shoulder area. Strains, sprains, and rotator cuff injuries can cause mobility issues, pain, and weakness in the arm. Shoulder injuries may be caused by repetitive, strenuous motion, or by physical trauma. Potential causes of shoulder injuries include falls, heavy lifting, workplace accidents, recreational and professional sports, and motor vehicle accidents.
The following are types of shoulder injuries:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Impingement rotator cuff and acromion
- Subluxation and dislocation
- Collarbone (clavicle) fractures
- Arthroscopic acromioplasty
