Regain Mobility & Reduce Discomfort from Shoulder Pain

Regain Mobility & Reduce Discomfort from Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a common issue that can make your everyday activities difficult and frustrating. They are often caused by injuries or overuse.


Anatomy of the

Anatomical areas in the shoulder that are most often injured:

  • Rotator Cuff (including muscles and tendons)
  • Labrum (cartilage ring surrounding the shoulder socket)
  • Biceps Tendon (especially the long head of the biceps)
  • Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint
  • Glenohumeral Joint (ball and socket joint)
  • Scapula (Shoulder Blade)
  • Subacromial Bursa (fluid-filled sac reducing friction between bones and tendons)
  • Clavicle (Collarbone)

These areas are commonly affected due to the complex and mobile nature of the shoulder joint, particularly in those engaging in intense physical activities.


Common Causes of

We frequently see shoulder pain resulting from several common causes.

These include rotator cuff injuries, which encompass strains or tears in the muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder; labral tears, affecting the cartilage ring surrounding the shoulder socket; and biceps tendonitis, particularly affecting the long head of the biceps.

Overuse and repetitive motion can lead to conditions like bursitis and impingement syndrome, where the subacromial bursa becomes inflamed or the rotator cuff tendons are compressed.

Additionally, the acromioclavicular (AC) joint and glenohumeral joint, both crucial for shoulder movement, are prone to sprains and arthritis.

These issues often stem from intense physical activity without adequate training, prolonged poor posture, or sudden trauma, underscoring the importance of personalized care and active recovery plans to prevent and manage shoulder pain effectively.
