Shoulder and Arm Injuries

The shoulder is the most complex joint in the body. Along with the arm, it helps with everything from throwing a ball to reaching for something in the cabinet. Since the shoulder and arms are commonly used, they are also prone to injury. Approximately 7.5 million people seek medical attention for a shoulder injury, with more than half of those concerning issues with the rotator cuff. When it comes to shoulder and arm injuries, a shoulder and arm injury attorney can help to walk you through your case.

There are two different types of shoulder injuries:

Instability – Instability occurs when you feel pain raising the arm and/or a feeling of the shoulder slipping out of place.

Impingement – Impingement is excessive rubbing of muscles against the top of the shoulder blade, which causes inflammation. It often results in more serious injuries when not treated.

According to the National Institute of Health, most shoulder injuries can be treated with the “RICE” method: rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Other advanced treatments include:

  • Cortisone Shots
  • Joint and Tissue Injections
  • Joint Replacement
  • Shoulder Surgery

Your arms are made up of the humerus, radius, and ulna, as well as muscles, joints, tendons, and other connective tissue. Pushing, pulling, or lifting heavy objects often causes arm injuries, though repetitive movements can also be responsible.
