Shoulder Dislocation (Luxatio Humeri): It occurs when the shoulder joint moves out of its normal position. Athletes are at risk of shoulder dislocation in contact or non-contact sports.

Rotator Cuff Tears: They occur as a result of strain or tears in the rotator cuff tendons. This is often seen in athletes who perform repetitive movements.

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Injuries: AC joint injury in the shoulder is common in contact sports such as football, basketball and snowboarding.

Shoulder Pain and Tendonitis: Inflammation or tears in the shoulder tendons can cause pain and a feeling of limited mobility in the athlete’s shoulder. This situation is especially common in sports where repetitive movements are made.
