Bursitis shoulder | Dr David Colvin

Bursitis Shoulder

The shoulder joint has an incredible range of motion, more than any other joint in our body. The shoulder joint is also one of the most complex joints in your body. It’s made up of three bones and a multitude of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. What does it mean when you start to experience pain or stiffness in your shoulder? You could be suffering from shoulder bursitis.
Rotator cuff tear | Dr David Colvin

Rotator Cuff Tear

Shoulder pain is a common complaint in our community. For younger people, shoulder pain is usually the result of an accident or injury. In older patients, it can be a natural wear and tear process. A rotator cuff injury is a common cause of shoulder pain, and is due to a strain or tear in the muscles or tendons of your shoulder.
Dislocated shoulder | Dr David Colvin

Dislocated Shoulder

A dislocated shoulder occurs when the ball of the shoulder joint is forced out of its socket. This dislocation may tear the shoulder capsule, known as a labral tear. The shoulder can dislocate both forwards (anterior dislocation) and backwards (posterior dislocation). Generally speaking, most shoulder dislocations are anterior dislocations.
AC joint dislocation | Dr David Colvin

AC Joint Dislocation

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Dislocation is usually caused by a direct fall onto the point of the shoulder. The shoulder blade (scapula) is forced downwards, and the collarbone (clavicle) pops up. It is a particularly common injury in contact sports and cycling. It can cause a visible bump on top of the shoulder.
