Shoulder Pain and Injury
The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body. The mobility that is available at the shoulder allows for a relatively large range of motion. While this makes it possible to have an upper limb with lots of freedom of movement, it can also mean that the shoulder joint itself is inherently unstable and can be susceptible to injury. Some of the structures in the shoulder that can become damaged are the rotator cuff, bicep tendon, shoulder labrum and shoulder bursa.
There are many reasons why someone will experience shoulder pain. Trauma, overuse and muscle imbalances due to poor posture are the most common factors that contribute to the shoulder conditions that we treat at the clinic. It is also common that shoulder pain can coincide with dysfunction in the neck, scapula and thoracic spine.
