Classifying a shoulder injury in Walthamstow
Shoulder injuries are quite common and are often the result of an accident. if you think that you may have suffered a shoulder injury in Walthamstow as a result of an accident then you should head to a doctor or even the hospital as soon as possible, so that you can get treated and be sure that your injury will not get worse or cause further complications. Here are some of the types of shoulder injury so that you can work out what type of injury you have, and how it should be treated.
This injury is quite common and can come about after your shoulder is pulled from the socket. You should recognise a dislocation by the severe pain, and the sound that the shoulder makes as it is injured. With a dislocation you will hear a ‘pop’ sound, and the severe pain will follow. You may feel pins and needles, or numbness in the arm following this type of injury.
This is an injury which will take more time to come on, and is unlikely to have happened in an instant during an accident. The pain will start as a gradual ache, which eventually spreads through your shoulder and gets more painful as time goes on. It hurts more when you are lying down or leaning on the shoulder, and it may make it difficult to do simple tasks such as eat and bathe. This type of injury takes up to a year to heal completely, but your doctor can give you advice on coping with it.
AC joint sprain
This pain is located at the end of your collarbone and through your shoulder. There will usually be swelling or a lump, and it will be difficult to raise your arm above the shoulder. The sprain will need to be treated, although it may take some time and there is no quick fix.
