Shoulder Pain

Suffering from shoulder pain? Cannot move your shoulder or arm properly? Looking for a relief and nothing is helping you?

Shoulder pain is a common physical occurrence which can manifest itself as a result of ~

  • Genetic disorders,
  • Strenuous manual labour,
  • Athletic injuries or
  • A simple fall.

There are different types of shoulder problems such as ~

  • A broken collarbone,
  • Damaged rotator cuffs – these are the muscles and tendons that hold the shoulder joint in place,
  • Osteoarthritis – a disease which effects the joint through an inability to produce enough cartilage in the joints, and
  • Tendinitis – torn or strained tendons due to excessive and unnatural movements.

Many pains associated with the shoulder are often a result of strains to other parts of the body such as the neck, upper back and arms.

There are many ways to temporarily relieve shoulder pain such as taking painkillers in the form of anti-inflammatories, using hot and cold packs depending on whether there is bruising or a muscle pain, and obvious exclusion from any strenuous activities that may exacerbate the pain.

For more serious pains that are consistent and prolonged you should visit a physiotherapist for treatment and they may even recommend surgery if the condition is severe.
