The shoulder is an extremely complex joint due to its high degree of freedom of movement.
Shoulder problems can result from accident-related injuries, which often affect patients who are active in sports. Furthermore, wear-related, chronically degenerative or spontaneous diseases of the shoulder region also occur without accidental exposure.
In recent years, decisive progress has been made in the treatment of shoulder complaints thanks to a better understanding of the significance of individual anatomical structures and how they function, and research into biological relationships.
The elbow: one of the most important joints in the human body
The elbow is increasingly affected by overstrain in our mechanised world. Especially the so-called “mouse hand” is increasingly causing problems for patients.
In daily practice, the following symptoms in the shoulder and elbow are encountered more often:
- impingement syndrome
- calcified shoulder – tendinitis calcarea
- torn shoulder muscles (rotator cuff injuries)
- AC joint blasts
- frozen shoulder
- shoulder instability or luxation
- clavicle fracture
- shoulder arthrosis
- the golf elbow
- the tennis elbow
- the mouse hand
This list represents only a selection of diseases of the shoulder and elbow joint, which can be diagnosed, among many others, by means of an appropriate examination by a specialist. In case of pain and complaints, we recommend that you have a personal consultation with one of our doctors. We would be happy to arrange an appointment with you.
