This injury can occur in one of three heads that make up the shoulder muscle or deltoids (anterior, lateral and posterior) or higher up near the rotator cuff (tendons in shoulder joint).

They assist with the extension and proper functioning of these body parts. The extensor tendons are prone to injury, but they can be repaired easily.

In regards to fusing the toe, a pin, screw, or small implant may be used to stabilize the toe while it heals. These implants can stay in the toe forever if buried internally, however, in some cases the implant may extend out through the end of the toe and can be removed in the office during the post-operative recovery period.
