More information about shoulder pain
What causes shoulder pain? Who is affected by shoulder pain?
The shoulder has a wide range of motion and is the most mobile joint in the human body. Shoulder injuries are common amongst people who perform manual labour or people who play sports often, especially contact sports such as rugby, or sports that involve throwing such as bowling, tennis or volleyball. Shoulder pain can also be caused by a non-strenuous repetitive movement or degeneration. This type of pain is more common among middle aged and older people.
The most common shoulder pain conditions are:
- Rotator cuff disorders: disorders that affect the muscles and tendons that stabilise the shoulder joint. This includes rotator cuff tendinitis or bursitis, impingement syndrome, calcific tendinitis and tendon tears
- Frozen shoulder: a painful condition where the tendons, ligaments, and muscles around the shoulder joint stiffen and limit or prevent the joint movement.
- Shoulder instability or dislocation: this can be due to injury or overuse of the joint, which causes hypermobility.
- Osteoarthritis: this is the most common type of arthritis in the shoulder joints and is caused by wear and tear. It usually appears in middle aged people and apart from pain, it can also cause swelling and stiffness.
- Acromioclavicular joint disorders: injuries of degenerative conditions that affect the joint at the top of the shoulder.
- Poor posture: this is a common cause for people who work in offices and spend a lot of time sitting down.
- Problems in other neighbouring areas such as the neck, bicep or upper back, which can cause pain in the shoulder area.
Advice for easing shoulder pain until you start physiotherapy or between sessions.
- Avoid activities that worsen the pain, especially the activities that caused it in the first place.
- Use ice packs while resting to reduce any inflammation
- Take painkillers and anti-inflammatories if necessary
- Be aware of your posture
- Do some basic stretching exercises for your shoulder.
