Man with Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a complex joint made up of 2 joints, the arm joint and the collar bone with the shoulder blade. It is mainly held together by muscles and ligaments, which is why, when you have shoulder pain it can spread over a large area.

There are several possible causes of shoulder pain, most are caused by soft tissue damage such as:

  • Rotator cuff tendonitis from strain to the muscles and tendons around your shoulder.
  • Tension in the muscles between the neck and shoulder – this is usually down to your posture in your upper back or neck and is often linked to your position when you are using a computer/phone.
  • Adhesive capsulitis/frozen shoulder, often caused by a fall forwards onto your hands or another injury.
  • Dislocation.
  • Fracture.
  • Damage to the bones and cartilage, which can be caused by arthritis.
  • Coming from a problem in another part of your body, such as your neck, or your low back.
