why is shoulder pain a common problem?

Good deals of movements depend on your shoulder. Whether it is reaching out the top shelf of your kitchen, playing badminton or lifting objects, we need to use the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is often called the most flexible joint, which if overused or used incorrectly may land you in trouble.

common causes of shoulder pain

Three bones—the clavicle (collarbone), the scapula (shoulder blade), and the humerus (upper arm bone) make up the shoulder joint. The rotator cuff—a group of four muscles plus tendons and ligaments—holds the ball of the humerus in the socket formed by the clavicle and scapula.

Now when one of the muscles or ligaments of the rotator cuff is weak or torn, the shoulder gets out of balance. It is at this point we find it difficult to move our arms up and down, sideways or even rotate while playing any sport.

Let us have a look at the main causes which lead to shoulder pain:

Rotator Cuff disorders

The common symptoms due to rotator cuff injuries would include pain on both the sides and front of your shoulder, pain mostly at night, pain while moving your arm in certain angles with the body and pain during activities like combing hair or putting on clothes in which your arm movement is involved. The different kinds of rotator cuff disorders include tendonitis and bursitis, rotator cuff syndrome, and tears.

Frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis is a painful stiffness of your shoulder joint restricting the usual shoulder movements. Everyday works like sleeping or dressing could get difficult due to this. People aged above 40 mostly experience Frozen Shoulder.

Broken arm or broken collarbone

One or more of the three bones in your arm (Ulna, Radius and Humerus) can be involved in your broken arm. Outstretching of your hand can cause a broken arm. It causes severe pain and swelling. You will even find it difficult to turn your arm.

Acromioclavicular Joint Disorders

The joint located right at the top of your shoulder is known as Acromioclavicular joint.
Normal Acromioclavicular joint disorders may include Osteoarthritis (making the joints stiff and therefore painful), tearing of the ligaments and complete or partial dislocation of the Acromioclavicular joint. As a result, one suffers from pain in the joint and the resultant limited movements. Men aged between 20 and 50, especially who are into sports, are most likely to go through these disorders.

Shoulder instability

The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint. Shoulder instability takes place when the normal movement of the ball part of your shoulder inside the socket is restricted. A complete shoulder dislocation is also possible when the ball gets out of the socket causing severe pain or muscle spasms. Individuals could experience numbness, weakness or a tingling sensation due to shoulder instability.
There are two types of Shoulder Instability- traumatic (when the shoulder gets out of place by a sudden jolt) and atraumatic (when the shoulder moves out of place slowly over time).

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

It is a bunch of disorders that occur when the blood vessels between the collarbone and thoracic outlet (the first rib) are compressed.
It causes pain in the shoulder and numbness in the fingers. Accidents, sports, anatomical flaws and also pregnancy are the common causes. One may require therapy or surgery for recovery.

Patient Testimonials


Mr. Mahesh

I had a serious L4 & L5 disc prolapse when I sought Portea’s physiotherapy. Thanks a lot to Dr. Amitava and Portea for their prompt service. Keep up the good work.

I am very happy to share my feedback regarding the excellent treatment I got. My Physiotherapist Dr. Babita Gurung was extremely helpful in getting back to me normal. She was very clear in her instructions and guides me well for each and every treatment she gives. She was absolutely wonderful and very active while discussing the problem and it’s remedy. She gives full attention and time to the patient and never in hurry to attend more patients by bypassing the under-treatment patients. Worth recommending to friends. Thank you all so much for your excellent care. I am feeling so much better now than when I started my PT. Your professionalism, concern and friendliness were much appreciated.

I think it was the most professional yet personal therapy I have had so far in the last 3 years since I first had the back problems. Dr. Fateh is a polite, good-natured and compassionate gentleman, who is extremely competent at his work and displayed great consistency throughout the sessions, even towards the end without slacking away time or hurrying up through the final sessions like most other Physiotherapists, as I have experienced before. He in fact ensured that he put a little more extra efforts towards the end to ensure that my back remains strong post the sessions.
