Shoulder Injuries

Injuries to the shoulder area can cause not only pain and discomfort, but also a limited range of motion and increased risk of future re-injury. Some people, even with treatment and rest, do not ever fully recuperate after a shoulder injury. Shoulder injuries can occur as a result of:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Workplace accidents
  • Sports incidents
  • Snowmobile accidents
  • Numerous other types of activities

If you have suffered a shoulder injury in an accident caused by someone’s negligence, you can recover damages by filing a claim against the responsible party with the help of a Toronto shoulder injury lawyer. A Toronto personal injury lawyer can fight for your rights.

Types of Shoulder Injuries

The shoulder comprises a ball-and-socket joint and contains three bones: the shoulder blade (scapula), the collarbone (clavicle), and the humerus (upper arm bone). It also has a network of surrounding tendons, muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Damage to any one of these components can cause pain and limited mobility. Some common types of shoulder injuries include:

  • Scapula and clavicle fractures
  • Proximal humerus fractures
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Separated or dislocated shoulder
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Nerve damage

Diagnosis and Treatment

When someone sustains a shoulder injury and visits the hospital or physician for diagnosis, the doctor will obtain a brief health history and conduct a physical exam. To confirm a diagnosis, the doctor may order imaging tests such as:

  • X-rays
  • Magnetic resonance imaging scans (MRIs)
  • Computed tomography scans (CT scans)

Treatment depends on the type and severity of the injury. A few options used for shoulder injury patients include:

  • Physician-recommended strengthening and stretching exercises
  • Pain medication and anti-inflammatory medicines
  • Physical therapy
  • Steroid injections
  • Slings or other devices to immobilize the shoulder

Do not procrastinate in seeking medical care for a shoulder injury. Surgery may also be needed in persistent cases if non-invasive treatment methods are unsuccessful or if your injury is particularly serious.

Working with a Lawyer

Because of the financial hardship a serious shoulder can cause, it is prudent to look into all possible forms of compensation. To find out your rights, contact a Toronto shoulder injury lawyer as soon as possible.
