Episode Notes

“There has been a dramatic rise in shoulder injuries in the last five to ten years,” Doctor Michael Ackland says, maybe we’ve just gotten better at diagnosing them. On this episode of Workers’ Comp Matters, your host, Attorney Alan Pierce, will chat with Dr. Ackland, an examining physician who has worked with a fair amount of attorneys and insurers on shoulder injuries.

Dr. Ackland is an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist. He focuses in arthroscopic reconstruction of the shoulder and the knee. What he considers to be the most gratifying cases are revision surgeries after a patient has had a failed shoulder surgery.

Tune in to hear the basics of shoulder injuries, why they happen, preventative exercises, and how to handle a work-related injury.
