Exercise Your Shoulder Pain-free
Musculoskeletal rehabilitation was required in 57 of the total population. Of the total 286 mus-culoskeletal injuries noted, back injuries were the most common musculoskeletal condition (49 ), with grade I motion segment abnormality the most common back injury (63 of back injuries). Other common injuries included knee injuries (18 ), shoulder injuries (13 ), and hip injuries (7 ).
A woman with an ectopic pregnancy typically complains of abdominal pain, amenorrhea of 4 to 6 weeks' duration, and irregular vaginal spotting. If the ectopic ruptures, the pain becomes acutely worse and may lead to syncope. Shoulder pain can be a prominent complaint due to the blood irritating the diaphragm. An ectopic pregnancy can lead to tachycardia, hypotension, or orthostasis. Abdominal or adnexal tenderness is common. An adnexal mass is palpable only half the time hence, the absence of a detectable mass does not exclude an ectopic pregnancy. The uterus may be normal in size or slightly enlarged. A hemoperitoneum can be confirmed by aspiration of nonclotting
This simple form of the classification has been helpful to determine diagnostic and therapeutic strategies and to establish a basis of communication with other orthopaedists. Description of static instabilities and recognition of osseous lesions to this classification may be an additional aid. A basis for this classification is that hyperlaxity (either generalized or of the shoulder) is an individual trait and not pathologic. However, hyper-laxity may be a factor of risk for having shoulder problems develop. Class A static instabilities Static anterior subluxation is a fixed anterior position of the humeral head on the glenoid fossa and often is manifest clinically as moderate to severe shoulder pain, partly caused by impingement under the coracoid and coracoacromial arch and loss of anterior elevation. It usually is detected on computed tomography (CT) scans or MRI scan taken with the arm in neutral rotation but occasionally may be evident on axillary lateral radiographs. Static...
Activities outside work and two to unaffected sleep. The patient is asked to say what percentage of work and recreation has to be abolished as a result of the shoulder problems. Unaffected sleep score two points and gross disturbance scores zero. One must be sure that sleep disturbance is caused by the shoulder and not by other problems, before reducing the allocated points.
Impingement and instability in the overhand or throwing athlete according to Kvitne et al [73 and Jobe et al [66
Based on the information obtained through a detailed history, physical examination, and preliminary diagnostic arthroscopy, most throwing athletes with refractory anterior shoulder pain can be classified into one of four groups. These overhand or throwing athletes are usually older and have shoulder pain associated with pure primary impingement, but they have no glenohumeral joint instability. Impingement testing elicits pain localized about the involved shoulder joint. Instability test are usually negative however, on occasion, athletes with severe impingement have experienced pain with the apprehension manoeuvre. Because their shoulder is stable, however, the pain is not relieved with the relocation This last group of athletes has developed pure primary glenohumeral joint instability, but has no signs of impingement. These patients usually give a history of a single traumatic event that has produced an anterior glenohumeral joint subluxation or dislocation. Understandably, most...
Initially, the authors interviewed 20 patients attending an outpatient shoulder clinic to identify how they experienced and reported problems with their shoulders. From these results and from established questionnaires, the authors drafted a 22-item questionnaire and tested it on 20 new patients. They were also given a second copy of the questionnaire, and asked to complete it at home on the following day and return it in a prepaid envelope. They were invited to add their comments to this copy and to include any further shoulder problems which were not addressed by it. The authors have developed and tested a short 12-item questionnaire which patients find easy to complete and which provides reliable, valid and responsive data regarding their perception of shoulder problems. It is intended for use as an outcome measure during specialist treatment and imposes very little burden on the patients. Few reported any difficulties in completing it.
Initially, the authors interviewed 20 patients attending an outpatient clinic to which they had been referred with instability of their shoulder, in order to identify ways in which they had experienced and reported their problem. The authors then drafted an 18-item questionnaire and tested it on 20 new patients. They were also given a second copy of the questionnaire and asked to complete it at home on the following day, and to return it. They were invited to add their comments to this copy and to include any further shoulder problems which were not addressed by it.
The patient must be motivated and able to cooperate with surgical pre- and postoperative care recommendations. All patients undergoing neurotization need induction exercise or motivation exercise. For example, after intercostal or phrenic nerve transfer, patients will be directed to run, walk, or perform hill climbing to obtain deep breathing. As recovery progresses, frequent exercise of the reinnervated muscles provides an internal nerve impulse that is always superior to the external electric stimulation. Similarly, resistive range-of-motion shoulder exercises stimulating trapezius contraction (''move up or bend back'' exercise) are important following surgery to re-educate spinal accessory
The following questions concern the physical symptoms you have experienced due to your shoulder problem. In all cases, please enter the amount of the symptom you have experienced in the last week. (Please answer with an X on the horizontal line.) The following section concerns how your shoulder problem has affected your work, sports or recreational activities in the past week. For each question, please indicate the amount with an X on the horizontal line. The following section concerns the amount that your shoulder problem has affected or changed your lifestyle. Again, please indicate the appropriate amount for the past week with an X on the horizontal line. The following questions relate to how you have felt in the past week with regard to your shoulder problem. Please indicate your answer with an X on the horizontal line.
The initial version of die SPADI consisted of 20 items grouped into pain and disability subscales, items were selected and placed in either the pain or disability subscale by a panel that included three rheumatol-ogists and a physical therapist. The face validity of each subscale was addressed by selecting items that the panel felt reflected pain and disability associated with shoulder problems. Table 21. Shoulder pain and disability index Table 21. Shoulder pain and disability index Scoring system. All items were rated using a visual analog scale. Visual analog scales seem to reflect more closely what the subject actually experiences and are the most widely employed type of scale in die measurement of the pain associated with rheumatic disorders. The visual analog scales used in the SPADI consisted of horizontal lines to which ware attached neither numbers nor divisions. Verbal anchors, representing opposite extremes of the dimension being measured, were placed at either end of the...
