Can a shoulder fracture cause scapular dyskinesis?

Can a shoulder fracture cause scapular dyskinesis?

Maybe, but...: Damage to the long thoracic nerve can cause winging of the scapula. This could potentially happen from a scapular or rib fracture, but as the nerve runs along the chest wall, other fracture locations are unlikely to damage that nerve. ...Read more

Fracture (Definition)

A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

How long will greater tuberosity fracture from fall on shoulder and scapular thoracic dyskinesis take to, heal, im 28f healthy?

6-12 weeks: Bony healing of the greater tuberosity should take 6-12 weeks. Scapulothoracic dyskinesis may take longer: you will need to rebuild muscle, relearn proper body mechanics and correct muscle imbalances, restore proper posture, etc. Put in the effort and therapy now and it will pay off later. ...Read more

Rear ended 2 months ago, shoulder fracture (not broken). A week ago a jump caused shoulder pain. Now tingling in arms and legs. Because of the injury?

Yes, it is possible: That the recent trauma is the cause of the nerve impingement. Nerve impingement can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging disc or encroached upon by bony overgrowth. Rec.: see an interventional pain management specialist for further investigation. ...Read more

Diagnosed with Scapular Dyskenisis, got through PT, but my shoulder pain never went away and is getting worse. What can I do to help this?

Diagnosed with Scapular Dyskenisis, got through PT, but my shoulder pain never went away and is getting worse. What can I do to help this?

Scapular Dyskinesis: can be caused or complicated by an internal injury to the shoulder (such as rotator cuff or labral tear or AC joint separation). While physical therapy is an integral part of treatment, there may also be an underlying shoulder injury which needs to be addressed. An MRI would be useful to see whether you have an internal injury causing your dyskinesis and increasing pain. ...Read more

I have three compression fractures in my back and now havin neck and shoulder pain running down my arm what causes this? None

I have three compression fractures in my back and now havin neck and shoulder pain running down my arm what causes this? None

If : If you have compression fractures, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease in your back, it's likely the same processes are occurring in your neck. When the nerve roots in your neck are pinched or irritated by bulging discs or osteophytes (bone spurs), you could have pain, numbness or other sensations in your arms and hands. (it's like having sciatica in your arms.) if left untreated, you could eventually develop weakness in your upper extremities. See your doctor about these symptoms. He/she may want to arrange an MRI of your neck. Good luck! ...Read more

A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
