Main Causes of Shoulder Pain
Many of us will experience shoulder pain at some point in our lives, and it is a very common problem.
It is vital to accurately diagnose the pain so the shoulder can be rehabilitated and treated as soon as possible.
Here are some of the more common causes of shoulder pain, with a brief explanation of each cause.
The following conditions are treatable using my book:
Shoulder impingement syndrome
This is where the supraspinatus tendon (one of the rotator cuff muscles) gets trapped underneath the acromioclavicular joint (ACJ). Other names for shoulder impingement syndrome are clinical impingement syndrome and painful arc syndrome.
Inflammation of the bursa (fluid filled sac) that sits underneath one ofthe shoulder joints, known as the acromioclavicular joint.
This is tendonitis of the supraspinatus muscle, one of the rotator cuff muscles. Most often caused by abrasion underneath the ACJ.
Rotator Cuff Tear
This is where one of the rotator cuff muscles tears. You may suffer a full thickness tear, or a partial thickness tear. The rotator cuff attach all around the shoulder and help to stabilise it.
This is where the rotator cuff tendon becomes calcified due to a prolonged period of abrasion.
Shoulder Arthritis (of the acromioclavicular joint)
Wear and tear changes under the acromion of the shoulder leading to shoulder impingement syndrome. This includes bone spurs.
