What causes your Shoulder PAIN?

shoulder pain

So you reach to take a mug out of the cupboard and …. ouch... then you try and take your shirt off and …. ouch …. then you try and put the grocery bag on the kitchen counter and ….. ouch and then let’s not forget how that twinge hits you when you are trying to brush your teeth.DOUBLE OUCH!

Sound about right?

Did you know that your shoulder is one of the joints in the body with the most mobility? However due to;

  • Stress
  • Negative movements
  • Computer work
  • Desk jobs
  • Heavy handed jobs
  • And even your personality type

….. your shoulders take a beating daily. If you want to know where your headaches come from…. look at your shoulder stability, natural glide of the blade and also how tense you are in your neck. How tight are your shoulders?

Are you able to?

  • Raise your arms comfortably to the back?
  • Lie on a foam roller with your arms comfortably resting on the floor?
  • Raise your arms above your head without lifting your shoulders to your ears? 

If you can’t, then you are likely to have issues with your shoulders at some point. The problem is that this could progress to;

  • Shoulder impingement where your shoulder is in pain when raised to a certain height at a certain angle because there is pinching in the socket.
  • Rotator cuff injury whereby the 4 muscles that form part of the humeral head stability are injured.
  • Frozen shoulder which could be due to injury or long term negative mechanics. Here the shoulder physically gets stuck and you are unable to move it in certain positions at all.
  • Bursitis within the area of the joint.
  • Tendinitis whereby the muscle has been overused and therefore it is now irritated.

If you think you might have any of these then it is important that you take action to address these problems long term. Life will not get easier when you have any of these. 

Did you know that these might even cause you headaches and visa versa? The neck and shoulder state are so closely related that one cannot be great without the other. Your upper back also plays a direct role in the ability for your shoulder and neck to be free and stabile.

Is there a cure?! Of Course there is. But you need to make the time and do the effort to get there.
