WHAT IS CAUSING MY SHOULDER PAIN?

Shoulder pain is very common among individuals. It may arise from some sort of injury related to work, or sports, or it may be a gradual onset that finally disturbs your activities. The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body, but is also the least stable. If you are experiencing ay of the following signs, it might be time to visit your physical therapist.

• Increased difficulty with movement

• Increased pain with movement

• Pain that is constant or lingers

• Pain that continuously gets worse

• Severe ache/pain

• Weakness in the shoulder/arm

Because the shoulder is so mobile, the source of shoulder pain can be from a number of structures. Things such as:

• Arthritis

• Stiff joints

• Tendon inflammation

• Bursitis

• Shoulder dislocation

• Cartilage, muscle or tendon tears

• Rotator cuff injury

• Breaks or fractures
