Facet Joint Syndrome

The joints between the vertebral arches, the intervertebral facet joints, are oriented in such a way that they reduce the rotation capability of the vertebrae. If there were no facet joints the disks would wear out more quickly as a result of rotatory movement in the spine. When the disks are affected by age-related degenerative […]

Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Tears

The triangular fibrocartilage (TFC) is a cartilaginous disk, much like the meniscus cartilage of the knee, which overlies the distal aspect of the ulna in the wrist joint. It is part of the TFC complex (TFCC) which supports the carpal bones on the ulnar side of the wrist and provides some stability for the distal […]

Dislocation of the Long Tendon of the Biceps

On the anterior aspect of the humerus, between the attachments of the tendons of the supraspinatus (greater tuberosity) and the subscapularis muscles (lesser tuberosity), is a ligament that holds the long biceps tendon in the groove in which it glides. If this ligament stretches or tears or if the groove is shallow, the biceps tendon […]

Calcific Tendinitis

The degenerative changes that occur in the supraspinatus tendons as part of the aging process can, in combination with exertion, cause chronic inflammation with deposits of calcium. This can occur in athletes as young as 30–35 years. The calcium deposits can rupture into the bursa overlying the supraspinatus tendon; this brings about a temporary improvement […]
