What are the types of Shoulder Injuries?

Some people often complain of lowered shoulder strength after a dislocation or injury. Wearing shoulder braces can help in strengthening shoulder joints and muscles. The increased resistance results in increased arm strength over time. Common shoulder injuries include:

Sprains

Sprain refers to a stretch or a tear in the ligament. It is destruction to one or more ligaments in a joint, frequently caused by stress or the joint being taken further than its functional range of movement.

Strains

Strain is simply a tear in the muscle or tendons. A tendon connects muscle to bone.

Tendinitis

Tendinitis or tendonitis is an inflammation or fracture of tendon which can be partial or complete. At times involves breakage of bone.

Arthritis

Arthritis is nothing but a joint inflammation which leads to joint pain and stiffness.
