Shoulder Pain And Some Causes

by rohan iswariah on 10/28/19

Shoulder Pain and Some Causes

Shoulder pain can arise from a number of conditions:

·         Rotator cuff problems – This is an injury or strain to the muscles of the shoulder girdle, particularly the intrinsic rotators. Pain can be felt in the shoulder or the upper arm.

·         Biceps tendonitis, which affects one of the tendons of the biceps muscle and is experienced at the front of the shoulder mainly (anterior aspect)

·         Frozen Shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis – This is where the shoulder capsule becomes inflamed and gradually stiffens and is often very painful. Range of movement becomes reduced which can limit daily activities.

·         Acromioclavicular joint pain – This is pain in the joint where the collarbone and shoulder blade join at the tip of your shoulder

·         Osteoarthritis – Gradual wear and tear of the cartilage and shoulder joint. You may feel swelling, stiffness and aching pain which can be sharp on movement.

·         Referred shoulder pain – Pain in the shoulder can be referred and coming from a problem in the neck or upper back.

·         Shoulder instability – Dislocation or excessive movement at the shoulder joint leading to pain.

 

 

Treatment of shoulder pain

As an experienced osteopath, I am trained to try and help you understand what is causing your shoulder pain. Once you have been examined, I will determine whether osteopathic treatment could help you. Scans or other tests may be required to make a diagnosis and I may refer you to your GP for further treatment or investigation.

Treatment varies to suit your individual case; you may receive massage, shoulder articulation or/and manipulation of the neck and thoracic spine with rehabilitative exercises.

If you have any questions about your shoulder pain and want to ask any questions, feel free to get in touch on 01491-838866.

 

Speak to Rohan or Jane and feel free to ask any questions before consultation.
