We don’t really realise how much we use our shoulders until something happens and one is injured, then suddenly it strikes us just how much of our daily routine involves our shoulders.
In your shoulder you have three bones: the clavicle, better known to us as the collar bone; the scapula, known to most of us as the shoulder blade; and the humerus, which is our upper arm bone. The shoulder bones are surrounded by muscles, tendons, and ligaments, all of which help to keep it in place. Did you know that your shoulders are the most movable joints in your whole body?
The shoulders are a common place where people sustain injuries from sporting accidents, work accidents, and car accidents like Reading road traffic accidents. Some of the injuries that can happen to your shoulders in Reading road traffic accidents or any road traffic accident include sprains, strains, dislocation, fractures, and torn ligaments, all of which can be treated with medication, physiotherapy, surgery, or plaster casts. However, they would all be extremely painful and affect your daily routine, having a real impact on your life.
If you think you may have damaged your shoulder, then some of the symptoms you would be experiencing are pain, swelling of the area, bruising, the shoulder may look deformed and out of its normal position, tenderness, and a loss of movement. If you are feeling any of those symptoms, you should seek medical advice immediately.
Once your injury has been confirmed by a doctor, if it happened in an accident that was not your fault you could be able to make a personal injury claim to get back some of the extra costs your injuries have caused, and any loss of earnings through the time you have had to take off work.
