Shoulder Pain and Injuries and How to Avoid Them

Shoulder Pain and Injuries and How to Avoid Them

by Stephanie Meadows
The shoulder is an elegant piece of machinery and is extremely complex. It happens to have the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. However, this large range of motion can cause the shoulder to become unstable, leading to joint problems and the site of multiple injuries. Your shoulder joint is composed of four joints, over 30 muscles, 6 major ligaments, and three bones: the clavicle (collarbone), the scapula (shoulder blade), and the humorous (upper arm bone). The edge of the scapula, called the acromion, forms the top of the shoulder. Some common shoulder injuries include, rotator cuff tendonitis, rotator cuff bursitis, rotator cuff tears, labral tears, shoulder contusions and ligament strains and tears.

As the largest tendon in the body, the Achilles tendon is critical for walking, running, dancing, and sports. This tendon connects the calf muscles to the heel, and it can be prone to injury. An Achilles rupture is a sudden event that sounds like a pop and causes acute, severe pain. People who have a rupture often say that it feels like someone has kicked or cut their lower leg or heel. Ruptures usually happen in people from about age 30 to 50, more commonly in men.
