Hearing a cracking or popping in the shoulder can be unsettling. However, unless it accompanies pain, swelling, or other symptoms, joint cracking and popping are generally harmless.
Elbow stiffness commonly causes functional impairment and upper-limb disability. This study aimed to develop a new pathologic classification to further understand and standardize elbow arthrolysis from a new perspective, as well as to determine clinical outcomes.
The aim of this clinical laboratory study was to compare scapular and rotator cuff muscle activation between standard and modified exercises.
Tendonitis and tendinopathy are not the same things. Knowing the differences will determine your treatment.
Shoulder impingement, which people sometimes call swimmer's shoulder, is a condition that causes pain in the shoulder due to a tendon or bursa rubbing against the shoulder blade.
