What is Shoulder Instability?

The ball and socket shoulder joint is a versatile joint and is held together by ligament and muscles. When this structure are torn or stretched, the shoulder becomes unstable. The typical symptoms of instability are a feeling of apprehension or fear when using arm for overhead activities.Majority of patients are treated with physiotherapy and strengthening of muscles around shoulder joint. Those who have persistent symptoms and those who have repeated dislocations are treated with arthroscopic stabilization surgery.

What is Rotator Cuff Tear/Tendintis?

Shoulder Joint is protected by four tendons called as rotator cuff. Trauma, repetitive overhead activities, hooked acromion; degeneration can lead to inflammation or rupture of rotator cuff tendon. The typical symptoms is a constant ache radiating down the outer aspect of shoulder and elbow, become worse on lying down and difficulty in rasing the arm. Conservative treatment in formof medicine and physiotherapy gives excellent result in inflammation/tendintis. Arthroscopy (Key Hole Surgery) is necessary in case of rupture or tear of rotator cuff tendon.

When is Shoulder Replacement Done?

Wear and tear of articular cartilage leads to arthritis (Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid arthritis) of the shoulder joint. The typical symptoms are pain, crepitus and restriction of movements. The concept of shoulder joint replacement is similar to hip and knee joint replacement which are more commonly done.
Here the arthritic bone is removed from upper end of humerus (Arm bone) and replaced by steel ball while the socket (Glenoid) is replaced by plastic linear. Humeral head resurfacing (HHR), Hamiarthroplasty and Total Shoulder Replacement are various replacement options available.
