This winter has been a history-making, record-breaking one, and we can thank the Winter Olympics for a large part of that! Did you see the unified Korean women’s ice hockey team take to the ice for the opening preliminary match against Switzerland? It marked the first time the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea came together to field a team at the Winter Olympics. The capacity-filled hockey center cheered in unity for their team, but you have to imagine the cheers had much deeper meaning than just a hockey game.

There are many common types of shoulder injuries in sports
In Baseball throwing a baseball is one of the fastest and most violent maneuvers to which any joint in the body is subjected. A rotator cuff is crucial to withstand the extraordinary forces experienced with the normal throwing motion. Lesions of the rotator cuff tendons are a common source of shoulder pain and injury.
In Swimming injuries and micro-trauma can cause shoulder to become unstable and lead to should pain and tendinitis. With “Swimmer’s Shoulder” the joint is commonly affected by injuries or overuse. Common shoulder injuries may include rotator cuff impingement, bicep tendinitis, and shoulder instability.
In Golf each shoulder has to do a very specific and opposite maneuver while swinging the golf club. The leading shoulder is prone to rotator cuff tears, posterior instability, AC joint pain and subacromial impingement. The non-leading shoulder is prone to anterior instability, rotator cuff tears, SLAP tears, and subacromial impingement.
