Suffering from Shoulder Pain?

Call 01285 654059 or email hello@marklandclinic.com

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. The shoulder joint is a ball-and socket joint, which allows a very wide range of movement. The joint is surrounded by a tough fibrous sleeve called the capsule, which helps to hold the joint together.


A group of four muscles and their tendons make up the rotator cuff, which controls movement and also helps to hold the joint together. There’s another smaller joint where the top of the shoulder blade meets the collarbone, the acromioclavicular joint.

It can sometimes be hard to see what you are doing wrong in your lifestyle because, well, it’s your lifestyle and you choose to dictate your terms by how you live it and not how something as little as shoulder pain is now interrupting it.


What if I told you that your routine could be making your shoulder pain worse? That all these movements cause unnecessary strain on your shoulders, leaving you in pain the next day? In order to get pain-free, it’s critical to understand how and why this pain may occur and to adopt a holistic approach in how to treat this pain.

What causes shoulder pain?

There are many causes of shoulder pain, but most cases will only affect a small area and are relatively short-lived. Diagnosis of Shoulder pain is not always essential for treatment but a clear understanding of a clear treatment pathway is needed.


Shoulder pain may also be part of a general condition such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Shoulder pain isn’t always caused by a problem in the shoulder joint problems in the neck can cause pain that’s felt over the shoulder blade or in the upper outer arm.

What can be done to help?

A Combination of Rest and Exercise

Aim for a balance between rest and activity to prevent the shoulder from stiffening. Pace yourself to start with and try to do a bit more each day. It’s important to remain active, even if you have to limit how much you do.

Posture

There is no such thing as bad posture, keep moving as much as possible. If you have to sit in a certain position for long periods of time, try and sit in a more neutral position. Neutral position will be different for everyone this is normal. So I want you to bring your shoulders forward as much as possible, then pull your shoulders back as much as possible. Do this to find a happy medium position.

When sitting, keep a pillow or cushion behind your lower back with your arm supported on a cushion on your lap. These quick adjustments can make a big difference to improving your pain

Reducing The Strain

When raising your arm or lifting objects, reduce the strain or pull on your shoulder by:

  • Keeping your elbow bent and in front of your body.
  • Keeping your palm facing the ceiling,
