The most common cause of shoulder pain and impingement occurs when the rotator cuff tendons become trapped under the bony area in the shoulder causing friction and inflammation.
Shoulder pain may also be caused by:
- Overuse or injury
- Frozen shoulder, which occurs when the muscles, tendons, and ligaments inside the shoulder become stiff, restricting movement and causing pain
- Bursitis, which is inflammation of a fluid-filled sac (bursa) that normally protects the joint and helps it move smoothly
- Dislocation of the shoulder and shoulder separation
- Broken shoulder bone
A physiotherapist can help you alleviate pain, and give guidance on how to manage and prevent shoulder pain and impingement from getting worse.
