Shoulder injuries are an incredibly common ailment and have a variety of causes. You may experience shoulder pain from falling, overworking, repetitive motion stress, or normal wear and tear. The most common shoulder injuries involve the rotator cuff with rotator cuff tendinitis or tendinopathy and rotator cuff tear. Other common shoulder injuries include dislocation, separation within the joint, fracture, meniscal / cartilage tear, frozen shoulder, impingement, bursitis, osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, bone spurs, and others.
Shoulder injuries are very common, but that doesn’t mean they’re not serious. You may experience chronic pain, loss of range of motion, numbness and tingling down the arm, swelling or bruising, and more. A shoulder injury can significantly reduce your quality of life by hindering you from enjoying your hobbies, getting a solid night’s sleep, or simply living without pain.
