Shoulder pain is a common problem that affects many people. In fact, it’s one of the top reasons people visit a doctor or a physical therapist. Studies have shown that up to 70% of adults will experience shoulder pain at some point in their lives. This type of pain can occur for a variety of reasons, such as injuries, overuse, or conditions like arthritis. It’s important to understand that shoulder pain can happen to anyone, regardless of age or activity level.
When shoulder pain occurs, it can make everyday tasks, like lifting a grocery bag, reaching for a high shelf, or even getting dressed painful and challenging. This can greatly impact your daily life, making it hard to work, participate in hobbies or sports, or simply spending time with family and friends.
The shoulder is a unique joint that allows for a wide range of motion, but this also makes it less stable than other joints. Injuries can happen because the upper arm’s ball is bigger than the shoulder socket. To help keep the shoulder in place, it relies on soft tissues like muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These tissues can be easily damaged from overuse, underuse, or accidents.
