Injuries in Overhead Motions in Athletes

Home/Patient Resources/Sports Medicine Terminology/Injuries in Overhead Motions in Athletes

Sports that involve overhead motions such as tennis and baseball place significant stress on the shoulder joint. When injuries do occur they usually do so in specific patters that are not common with other shoulder injuries. Recognition of these specific injuries and appropriate, timely treatment is essential so the athlete can return to sports. Common injuries are for instance labral and SLAP tears and glenohumeral internal rotation deficit. Advanced shoulder surgeriesinvolving arthroscopic techniques are used to treat these types of injuries.
