What can be the cause?
Shoulder pain can occur due to over use, poor posture, trauma or tissue damage from a previous injury which can result in frozen shoulder, instability and rotator cuff disorders and impingement syndrome.
What do you feel?
Symptoms of shoulder pain can include ‘catching’, sharp pain, a dull ache or restricted movement and can often radiate down the arm or towards the shoulder blade/neck. It can impact on a person’s life as the pain is often triggered by movement making daily tasks like putting on a coat, reaching difficult, even brushing your hair, resulting in frustration and anxiety. Often people receive injections into the shoulder which usually only gives temporary relief.
