Shoulder conditions

Shoulder pain is a common problem that affects many people on a yearly basis. Shoulder problems can develop over time, caused by repetitive low-level strain or from traumatic injuries, such as a rugby tackle or a fall.

The shoulder joint is made up of a ball and socket joint, this allows for a wide range of motion, making it one of the most mobile joints in the body. The shoulder joint is held in place by a group of muscles known as the rotator cuff, along with strong ligaments and a capsule.

These soft tissues can be vulnerable to injury at the attachment point in the middle of your upper arm or where they originate in the neck.
