Specialties at a Glance
A trigger finger is a common problem that causes pain and catching. It is a defect in a tendon causing a finger to jerk or snap straight when the hand is extended.
Impingement is one of the most common causes of pain in the adult shoulder. It results from pressure on the rotator cuff from part of the shoulder blade (scapula) as the arm is lifted.
If you tear your biceps tendon, you may lose some strength in your arms and be unable to turn your arm from palm down to palm up. You may also notice a bulge in the upper arm (Pop-eye muscle).
Rotator cuff tear is most common in people who are over the age of 40. It may occur in younger patients following acute trauma or repetitive overhead work or sports activity.
