… the shoulder

The shoulder is the joint with the greatest range of motion in the body. A large number of muscles and ligaments are involved in the various movements of the shoulder joint. Injuries to the shoulder are often complicated and not easy to diagnose.

Pain often manifests itself in the front or back of the shoulder. Raising the arm may be painful and culminate in a loss of movement. Feelings of instability can also occur.

Acute injuries

Typical injuries to the shoulder include dislocation, in some cases involving injury to the tendon hood (rotator cuff) or glenoid labrum.

At our practice we can make an accurate diagnosis by using imaging techniques such as ultrasound, radiography, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging, and carrying out a comprehensive clinical examination. Depending on the nature and extent of the injury, we will coordinate the necessary conservative or surgical measures with you.

Chronic disorders

Typical chronic shoulder dysfunctions include inflammation of the bursa with or without calcification (bursitis tendinitis or bursitis), calcification of the tendon (tendinitis calcarea), acromioclavicular osteoarthritis, humeral head arthrosis, impingement syndrome, and instability following a shoulder dislocation.

Visit the orthopädie elisenhof clinic, so that our specialists in orthopaedics and trauma surgery can determine what your symptoms are and initiate possible treatment measures such as extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT).
