The shoulder has the widest range of motion of all joints. Therefore the shoulder has a complex anatomy what makes it susceptible to injuries. Shoulder instability, osteoarthritis, ruptured tendons are the most common pathologies.
In the case of injuries resulting from trauma or sport injuries as well as chronic shoulder pain resulting from inflammations or overuse, a differentiated diagnosis by means of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is essential.
This together with a sophisticated clinical examination allows the decision for a conservative (physical therapy and medication) or a surgical treatment.
