Shoulder Pain Reasons and Treatment

Shoulder pain can be a result of various reasons including traumatic injuries, overuse, or misuse. It can limit your ability to move your arm freely and can have a significant impact on your daily activities. However, the good news is that physiotherapy can help in relieving your pain and restoring your shoulder’s function.

Traumatic shoulder injuries can occur from a fall, a blow or an accident. They can cause damage to the muscles, tendons, ligaments or bones in the shoulder area. On the other hand, overuse or misuse injuries are typically caused by repetitive movements, poor posture or lack of strength. These types of injuries are common among athletes or individuals who engage in physical labor.

Symptoms of shoulder pain may include pain, stiffness, weakness, swelling, and limited range of motion. In some cases, it may also cause radiculopathy, which is a condition where the nerve roots exiting the spine become compressed, causing pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the shoulder or arm.

The first step in treating shoulder pain is a thorough evaluation by a physiotherapist. They will assess your shoulder’s mobility, strength, and any other contributing factors such as poor posture, muscle imbalances, or joint dysfunction. Once the assessment is complete, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to address your specific needs.
