How Is The Shoulder Structured ?
The shoulder is made of of three bones and can be very easily injured or damaged if loaded or used incorrectly. Shoulder pain can also be very painful as this is a sensitive area to injury as well, and can spread pain down the arm.
What Is The Main Structure Of The Shoulder ?
- The humerus (upper arm), scapula (shoulder blade) and clavicle (collar bone) are the three main components of the shoulder.
- With these three components are also what is known as the rotator cuff which help secure and stabalise the shoulder joint.
- There is also a lubricating sac which sits across the top of your shoulder called the acromion. This lubricating sac is called the bursa and assists in your shoulder tendons to move about freely while moving or rotating your shoulder. The bursa is found between the rotator cuff and scapula
Shoulder injury from sport or work related matters can seriously limit movement to your arm should you injure this area. It is a very unique musculoskeletal design as to the rest of your body which basically offers a much higer range of mobility than other joints in your body.
What Is Shoulder Impingement ?
Shoulder impingement or a shoulder pinch often takes place when in many cases the b ursa or rotator cuff becomes pinched in the space between the humerous and the acromion. This often happens when you have your arm over shoulder height and tend to rotate your arm inwards. Even if you did this now, you would find that your shoulder may feel somewhat slightly loaded up or un-natural in this movement.
Possible outcomes fro such a shoulder injury as this is inflammation of the tendon and bursa which will restrict movement and cause shoulder pain.
What Are Some Shoulder Injury Symptoms ?
- Pain at the front or the top of the shoulder.
- Pain can occasionally occur down the arm making use of the arm difficult.
- Pain with heavy lifting.
- Pain above shoulder height.
- Pain on the injured location of the shoulder.
What Shoulder Causes Can Lead To A Pinched Shoulder ?
- Shoulder Trauma
- Repeatedly over reaching on a constant basis
- Poor bio mechanics or body posture which can lead to improper use of the shoulder
- Thickened tendons or bony spurs causing reduced space for movement
Can Physiotherapy Help Restore Shoulder Movement ?
Yes It Can. An experienced shoulder physiotherapist has the means to be able to asses the correct course of action and exercise to help restore an injured or pinched shoulder which will put an end to the pain you may suffer during the day or night. Shoulder impingement usually responds very well to shoulder physiotherapy treatment as opposed to not be treated and neglected altogether. When you have a carefully assessed action plan for shoulder exercise and physiotherapy, you will recover in your ability to use your shoulder movement.
Tears Of The Rotator Cuff
When it comes to the rotator cuff, there are only four muscles that form together with the rotator cuff. It is typical for tears to take place along the rotator tendons or muscles which are usually cause by trauma which can results from falls or physical injury from work related matters such as lifting, pushing or pulling or, repetitive strain injury from repeated use of the tendons or muscles.
Symptoms Of Rotator Cuff Tears
- Pain in the top of the shoulder
- Pain in the front of the shoulder
- Pain occasionally spreading down the arm
- Restricted motion resulting in severe cpain
- Difficulty with reaching forward
- Difficulty with reaching to the sides

Most minor rotator cuff tears can be treated by an experienced shoulder physiotherapist. Major injury resulting from falls or major tears can sometimes require surgery.

This referred pain can also reach down your arms into your forearm and sometimes even your wrists or hands. Usual symptoms from this can also be numbness or sometimes pins and needles.
