Shoulder Pain


The shoulder is thought to be one of the most complex and unstable joints in the body. It is known as the Glenohumeral Joint (GHJ) and is made up of three bones i.e the clavicle, scapula and humerus. It is an extremely mobile joint and therefore is easily at risk for injury. The most common causes of shoulder pain are rotator cuff damage, GHJ dislocation and instability, “adhesive capsulitis”-frozen shoulder acromio-clavicular sprain, labral tear, muscle tear or referred pain for the neck or thoracic spine. The treatment for each condition differs but the main goal is to reduce pain and restore mobility, strength, stability and function.
