Pay attention to the shoulder joint! – Health news

Orthopedics and Traumatology Specialist Op. Dr Hasan Aydın drew attention to shoulder trauma and said: “It occurs due to overuse of bones and soft tissues, as well as shocks and strains. External force, such as a traffic accident or a fall, also damages the shoulder tissues and structures. “It is considered a trauma,” he said.Evaluating the structure of the shoulder, Op Dr. Hasan Aydın said, “There are 3 bones and 2 types of joints in the shoulder region. Arm bone (Humerus), shoulder blade (Scapula) and clavicle (clavicle). As a joint, the shoulder joint, that is, the upper outer end of the arm and the shoulder blade formed by the shoulder blade and collarbone at the acromioclavicular joint.


Saying that the bones that form the shoulder joint and the joint socket are anatomically not very deep, the shoulder joint is the joint where dislocations are most common. Dr. Hasan Aydın said: “Compared to the hip joint, the joint socket is quite shallow. The shoulder joint is quite open to trauma and is prone to immobility. Staying still for a short period of time causes joint stiffness.” Noting that shoulder injuries are classified as direct and indirect injuries, Op. Dr. Hasan Aydın said: “It can also be expressed as bone damage and soft tissue (muscle) damage. Muscle injuries are the most common. Muscle injuries include rupture of the muscle due to sudden severe trauma or chronic repetitive trauma and dislocations.”


Saying that one of the emergencies of orthopedics is joint dislocations, Op. Dr Aydın said: “As we mentioned at the beginning, the most common joint dislocation is seen in the shoulder region. Dislocations should be acted upon on the spot as soon as possible. Underlining that the treatment of fractures varies depending on the type and size of the fracture and whether or not the broken ends are separated, Op. Dr. Hasan Aydın said: “The goal is to ensure a good connection of the fracture. “Kus. Dr. Hasan Aydın said that muscle tears can be repaired by astroscopic or open surgery, taking into account the size of the tear and the patient’s complaint.


With regard to incurable shoulder injuries, Op. Dr. Hasan Aydın said: “The complex structure of the shoulder joint and its susceptibility to immobility should be taken into account. The goal in shoulder trauma should be to mobilize the shoulder as quickly as possible. Delay in treatment can lead to loss of shoulder range of motion, which we call joint stiffness in the shoulder, should be treated. Physiotherapy should be started with the support of a specialist.”


Stating that the broken ends should be brought together anatomically with surgery as much as possible, in the bones that have not been separated or treated as a result of the treatment, Op. Dr. Hasan Aydın stated that with the developing technology, astroscopic operations have come to the fore. Kiss. Dr Hasan Aydın said: “Atroscopic surgery is the examination of the joints by making small incisions 0.5 cm long to view the inside of the joints using a camera. It was used for diagnostic purposes in previous years. With the latest technology, it has also been used for treatment. These surgeries cause less tissue damage and are therefore shorter. These are surgeries that make it easier for the patient to return to their normal lives at the same time,” he said.


State that the doctor’s recommendations should be followed after shoulder injuries, Op. Dr. Hasan Aydın said: “If your doctor recommends physical therapy, it should be applied. The muscles around the shoulder should be strengthened with physical therapy. The normal range of motion of the shoulder should be achieved.”
