Shoulder pain is a very common condition that can occur through traumatic and a-traumatic incidents. Pain can be a result of direct trauma, repetition or overuse, degeneration or referred pain from another joint such as the neck. The shoulder is an extremely mobile joint at the comprise of ligamentous and bony stability. Therefore the interactions of the muscles that surround the shoulder joint is extremely important.
The shoulders most common injuries include: Shoulder dislocation/sublaxation, Rotator cuff injury and/or tendinopathy, Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive capsulitis), subacromial impingement/ bursitis due to dysfunction of bony and muscular structures and labral injuries. It is also very common that shoulder pain can be referred from injury or dysfunction to the neck and/or mid back.
