Lets begin to fix your shoulder pain.

The shoulder is where your arm (your humerus) attaches to your body as it connects with your shoulder blade (scapula).

This joint is very mobile, allowing us to  complete many different and complex arm movements in our daily lives. unfortunately, as this joint is so mobile, it lacks stability and relies on many muscles for support. Therefore it is prone to injury from trauma and also overuse of these surrounding muscles. 

Shoulder pain occurs frequently and there are many common causes. It is important to see your physiotherapist for an accurate diagnosis to ensure the best treatment. Read below to find out some of the main causes of shoulder pain.
