Shoulder Injury & Pain

Shoulder Injury & Pain

The shoulder is a body part vulnerable to excessive wear and injury due to its enormous range of movement. Many joints work in conjunction at the shoulder, and one of them is the glenohumeral joint, also known as the ball and socket. This joint allows the shoulder joint to have an extensive range of motion because of its inherently unstable design. It has a large round bone articulating with a small shallow crest. Therefore, the shoulder will rely heavily on the strength and coordination of muscles, ligaments, and an intact labrum to move painlessly.

Pain relief is even more difficult as gravity pulls the arms down or when you are lying on it at night because these will cause more pressure on the shoulder.

Symptoms & Causes of ​Shoulder Injury & Pain

Some shoulder injury & pain symptoms are:

  • Pain in the shoulder joint, the back or front of the shoulder, the upper part of the arm

  • Reduced movement of the arm and/or shoulder

  • Weakness of the shoulder / upper arm

  • Sensations of tingling and burning pain

  • Lack of movement after shoulder dislocation

​The causes of shoulder injury & pain are:

  • Shoulder instability (occurs typically after an injury, causing the shoulder to partially or fully dislocate; may happen to those who are naturally double-jointed without any injury)

  • Strenuous activity/trauma (e.g., motor vehicle accidents injury/sports injuries)

  • Inflammation of the shoulder capsule (Synovitis, Frozen shoulder)

  • Arthritis

  • Poor centering of the ball through a range of movements wears the soft tissues that hold it in place

  • Neck pain and upper back pain​

Treatment for ​Shoulder Injury & Pain

Physiotherapy treatment is crucial in the early stages of shoulder pain to prevent the condition from worsening and being challenging to resolve. Therefore, regardless of whether shoulder pain is due to a specific injury or develops gradually for no apparent reason, the condition needs to be assessed by a physiotherapist.

Without any targeted physiotherapy shoulder treatment, shoulder pain will become more complicated with rapid loss of muscle strength and stability around the shoulder and shoulder blade. This condition can escalate to secondary problems and pains such as neck pain, headaches, and frozen shoulder.

Our physiotherapists at Fizo Kare Physiotherapy Centre will focus on reducing the pain and stress on the damaged tissues using treatments and exercise programmes to encourage healing and prevent aggravating the condition further.

Physiotherapy treatment should continue even after the injury is healed. The shoulder is more comfortable working on any stiffness and weakness continually developed to get the shoulder moving and working correctly. Otherwise, the shoulder is still vulnerable to further injury or overuse even if the pain has resolved.
