Shoulder pain is pain that is felt in the shoulder area, at the top of the arm. It is a sign that the joints, muscles or other parts of the shoulder are injured, strained or not working properly. About one in 10 people experience shoulder pain at some time in their lives. One of the causes of shoulder pain may be osteoarthritis in one of the two joints in the shoulder.
The risk of developing osteoarthritis of the shoulder with its pain and physical limitations increases with age. But an injury, such as a dislocated shoulder, can lead to shoulder osteoarthritis even in young people. This webinar explores how an arthritic shoulder can affect your range of motion and ability to do everyday things, and ways to treat and manage the condition.
This webinar is being presented by Clinical Associate Professor Mark Haber, one of Australia’s leading shoulder surgeons.
DATE: Monday 7th of May 2018
TIME: 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Topics will include:
> Understanding the shoulder joint anatomy and how osteoarthritis in the shoulder joints causes pain
> Types of shoulder osteoarthritis
> Complications and functional implications of shoulder osteoarthritis (e.g. frozen shoulder)
> Non-surgical treatments for shoulder osteoarthritis – lifestyle modifications, exercise, supplements and injections
> Surgical inverventions
