Understanding Shoulder Arthritis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Your main shoulder joint is made up of two bones, your upper arm bone, called the humerus, and your shoulder blade, or scapula. This joint called the glenohumeral joint is where the head of your humerus fits into the socket of your scapula. Smooth tissue called articular cartilage lines the bony surfaces of the joint. Tough tissue, called the joint capsule surrounds the joint. Fluid inside the capsule helps lubricate the joint. All of these features help your shoulder move freely. Shoulder arthritis is a painful disease in your shoulder joint. The two main types of shoulder arthritis are osteoarthritis, which may be due to years of overuse or injury, and rheumatoid arthritis. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage covering the bony joint surfaces becomes rough and wears away. This allows the bones to rub together. In rheumatoid arthritis, your immune system attacks your joints. This inflames the joint tissue and causes swelling. Over time, it can damage both the cartilage and bone in your joint. The most common symptom of shoulder arthritis is pain. As the arthritis gets worse over time, the pain may limit how much you can move your shoulder. If you have questions about shoulder arthritis, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."
