Shoulder Injury

shoulder injuryA shoulder injury is a serious problem for essentially anyone who has the misfortune to incur it. The importance of being able to use one’s hands and arms cannot be overestimated, and a shoulder injury can greatly reduce an individual’s ability to work and live normally. Some shoulder injuries are temporary, but others cause permanent damage and lifelong problems.

If you’ve suffered an injury to the shoulder, there are a variety of treatments that can help. Chiropractor services for shoulder injuries, for example, are available. But, in some cases, it can be expensive. The law firm of Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith helps people that are suffering from shoulder injuries get the compensation they need to pay for the highest quality chiropractor services possible. To find out if you qualify for compensation, contact us today.

How Does a Shoulder Injury Occur?

A shoulder injury can occur in an auto accident, a truck accident, a slip and fall accident, a sports mishap, etc. The shoulder joint is very mobile, affording a great range of motion of the arm, but the joint (where the shoulder blade meets the collarbone) is vulnerable, too. There are a plethora of specific shoulder injury categories, such as:

  • brachial plexus injury
  • broken arm
  • bursitis
  • dislocated shoulder
  • frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
  • rotator cuff injury
  • separated shoulder
  • spinal cord injury
  • sprains and strains
  • tendinitis
  • tendon rupture
  • thoracic outlet syndrome
  • torn cartilage

Shoulder Injury Pain and Other Symptoms

The inflammation caused by a shoulder injury can cause a great deal of pain, plus other symptoms such as:

  • a bump at the top of the shoulder
  • limited shoulder movement, and pain upon moving
  • shoulder bruising and/or swelling
  • shoulder and/or arm weakness

Shoulder Injury Diagnosis

Some shoulder injuries are quite apparent visibly, but others must be identified by imaging modalities such as computerized tomography (CAT or CT scans), MRI, and X-rays. The diagnosis of the specific type of shoulder injury may take some or all of these tests, in part to rule out other medical problems.

Shoulder Injury Treatments in Las Vegas

The treatment of shoulder injury cases in the Las Vegas area as elsewhere depends on the particular type of shoulder injury. Rest, ice, medication, exercises, physical therapy and chiropractor services are options, and in some shoulder injury cases, surgery is appropriate.

Compensation to Pay for Treatments May Be Available

For people whose shoulder injuries are due in part or completely to the negligence of others, such as in an auto or truck accident or a slip and fall, compensation to pay medical bills and lost wages may be obtained. To find out if you are eligible for compensation, please contact us today.
