What causes shoulder pain?

The shoulders comprise many components, including bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and muscles, as well as nerves and blood vessels, and injury to any of these can cause symptoms like pain and stiffness. Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • car accidents

  • slip-and-fall accidents

  • work-related injuries

  • sports injuries

  • repetitive stress injuries

  • overuse injuries

  • whiplash

  • carrying heavy or unbalanced loads

  • nerve problems in the neck or upper back

  • strain of the tendons or ligaments in the arms

  • sleeping on an unsupportive mattress or pillow

  • long periods of immobility, such as occupations that involve long hours at a computer or in front of machinery

What does the term “frozen shoulder” mean?

Frozen shoulder is a condition that causes pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion in the shoulder, usually as a result of a period of immobility, such as the recovery period following surgery or after a stroke. Sometimes, scar tissue can develop which makes symptoms worse. Physical therapy is one of the keys to avoiding frozen shoulder following surgery, stroke or injury, keeping the tissues mobile and supple while promoting healthy circulation in and around the joint.

What is shoulder bursitis?

Your shoulder joint contains small sacs of fluid called bursa which help cushion joints during motion. Sometimes, the bursa can become irritated and inflamed, resulting in shoulder bursitis. Bursitis most often develops as a result of repetitive use of the joint or as a result of carrying very heavy loads like heavy laptop bags or luggage.

How can physical therapy help me relieve my shoulder pain?

Once the source of your pain has been diagnosed, a therapy plan will be developed that's based on your specific medical needs as well as individual lifestyle and occupational factors to ensure the best possible outcome.
