There are many causes and symptoms of shoulder pain. At Germering Orthopedics, we will find the treatment options for your individual shoulder problem.
There are many possible causes of shoulder pain. It can be caused, for example, by a bad rotation movement, during a sports activity or physical work. But there are also causes associated with aging, which initially remain undetected and later manifest themselves in form of certain symptoms. At Germering Orthopedics, we take the time to make a specific diagnosis and to develop appropriate treatment measures with our patients.
Pain from overhead movements
If you feel shoulder pain during overhead movements or rotation movements, for example in the night, then you may be suffering from osteoarthritis or impingement. In osteoarthritis, the joint cartilage is increasingly eroded, which can lead to pain with joint stiffness in the elderly. In the case of the impingement syndrome, the space below the bony shoulder projection is impinged causing irritation of the bursa and the tendons. You can discuss the
right therapy for you with our orthopedic specialists and trauma surgeons in Germering.
Sudden, strong pain in the shoulder with limited movement
Sudden, strong pain in the shoulder with additional movement limitations may be a sign of calcified shoulder . This is when calcification forms in the shoulder tendons. Conservative treatment is usually enough to treat the discomfort. In rare cases, surgery must be considered.
You will find out more about diagnosis and therapy in a personal consultation with our orthopedic specialists and trauma surgeons in Germering.
Weakness with pain when lifting an arm
Shoulder pain together with weakness when lifting the arms may be a sign of a tendon rupture at the rotator cuff. It can be caused by overstrain or wear. In case of a rupture at the rotator cuff, conservative or surgical treatment measures may be advisable.
Our orthopedic specialists and trauma surgeons in Germering will be happy to consult you in detail about the individual treatment options and start the therapy that is right for you.
A frozen shoulder manifsts itself through limitation of movement in the shoulder joint, which can be painful or without pain.
Often, the cause is prolonged lack of movement after injury or surgery. However, frozen shoulder can also occur spontaneously, without a clear cause. You can discuss
appropriate treatment with our orthopedic specialists and trauma surgeons in Germering.
It sometimes happens that the shoulder often dislocates from the joint cavity. This is called shoulder instability. It can occur after an accident or fall, but also could be due to weakness of the stabilizing muscles, ligaments and capsule. Conservative measures or surgical intervention may be the appropriate treatment. The orthopedic specialists and trauma surgeons at Germering Orthopedics will be happy to consult you on the treatment options that are most appropriate in your case.
