More information about shoulder pain

What causes shoulder pain? Who is affected by shoulder pain?

The shoulder is the joint with the highest range of motion in the human body. Shoulder injuries are common with people who play contact sports like rugby or sports involving throwing like tennis, volleyball or with people who do manual labour, involving repetitive movement. Shoulder pain can also be a result of degeneration which is typical for middle aged and older people.

The most common shoulder pain conditions are:

  • Osteoarthritis: arthritis of the shoulder joints that is a result of wear and tear that is typical for middle aged or older people. It causes pain and loss of mobility.
  • Frozen shoulder: this painful condition is caused by stiffening of the tendons, muscles and ligaments around the shoulder and results in restriction of joint movement.
  • Dislocation or instability of the shoulder: trauma or strain of the joint can lead to hypermobility
  • Rotator cuff disorders: these include tendon tears, tendinitis or bursitis, calcific tendinitis and impingement syndrome, and affect tendons and muscles that support the shoulder joint.
  • Acromioclavicular joint disorders: degenerative conditions that affect the joint at the top of the shoulder
  • Poor posture: typical for people who spend lots of time sitting down
  • Problems in other neighbouring areas such as the bicep, neck or upper back, which can cause pain in the shoulder.

How to ease shoulder pain?

  • Apply ice packs to reduce inflammation.
  • Avoid activities that worsen the pain.
  • Pay attention to your posture
  • Take painkillers and anti-inflammatories to alleviate pain
  • Some basic stretching exercises for your shoulder can help.
