Shoulder Trauma Injuries
The shoulder joint is complex, capable of a wide range of motion for extended reach and mobility. To accomplish this flexibility, ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones and cartilage must all work together simultaneously. When trauma occurs to the shoulder, damage to any of these elements can reduce mobility and cause pain. Dr. Kerisimasi Reynolds offers various treatments for shoulder trauma injuries at his practice in San Jose.
Shoulder trauma can occur from a variety of sources. Overexertion can cause injury, a common issue with athletes. Tennis, baseball, football, swimming, golf – all can create overexertion scenarios. Sports injuries can also include impact to the shoulder from falls or collisions. Accidents are another source of shoulder trauma injury – impact from car accidents or outstretched arm falls can cause a tear in the rotator cuff, bicep tendon ruptures and other shoulder trauma injuries.
