Causes Of Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is made of three bones: the clavicle (the collarbone), the scapula (the shoulder blade), and the humerus (the long arm bone). These bones are surrounded by a layer of cartilage. There are two joints in the shoulder, the acromioclavicular and the glenohumeral. The acromioclavicular joint joins the highest part of the scapula and the clavicle. The glenohumeral joint joins the ball-shaped part of the humerus and the outer edge of the scapula.

The glenohumeral joint is also referred to as the shoulder joint and is the most flexible joint in your body. Any movement you make in your arm is because of this joint, and problems in this joint will limit your mobility and cause shoulder pain.

Glenohumeral rhythm is a ratio of the glenohumeral movement to the scapulothoracic movement during shoulder elevation. A normal rhythm is 2:1 whereby the scapula starts rotating when the humerus has elevated to 120 degree. Shoulder dyskinesia occurs when this rhythm is off. Scapular dyskinesia can be caused by tightness and weakness in scapular muscles and rotator cuff muscles or due to poor postures. It is usually the main cause of most shoulder injuries like the ones mentioned below.

1. Rotator Cuff injury

The combination of four muscles and tendons is called the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is responsible for your arm movement. When you move your arm upward, downward, and to the sides, it is because of the rotator cuff, and any injury to the rotator cuff will affect your arm movement. 


Causes Of Rotator Cuff Injury: The rotator cuff can be damaged by lifting heavy objects, repetitive movement of the arm, or by falling on your arm. However, the physician will examine your arm to diagnose which part of the rotator cuff is damaged and propose suitable treatment for it.


Symptoms: 

  • Shoulder or arm pain.

  • Weakness in the arm.

  • Difficulty in lifting and moving arms.

  • Pinging or tearing sensation at the time of the injury.

  • Asymmetric at the shoulder.

2. Frozen Shoulder

The frozen shoulder is a condition that limits your shoulder movement and causes severe pain when the shoulder is moved in a certain direction. The shoulder is surrounded by tissue, and if these tissues thicken or tighten, the condition is called frozen shoulder.


Causes Of Frozen Shoulder: There is no known cause of frozen shoulder. However, people who have not used their shoulders for a long time due to an injury or surgery are at risk of frozen shoulders. Women over the age of 40, as well as those with diabetes, have been observed to have frozen shoulders.

Symptoms: 

  • Pain in arm.

  • Difficulty sleeping on your shoulder.

  • Difficulty in lifting and moving arms.

  • Dressing up becomes painful.

3. Impingement Syndrome

Impingement syndrome is a common cause of shoulder pain. It occurs because of excessive rubbing between the humerus and the top outer edge of your shoulder. The rubbing results in swelling and narrowing down the space, which leads to pain and irritation in the shoulder. 


Causes Of Impingement Syndrome: When the rotator cuff is swollen due to injury or irritation, it swells. The swelling causes rubbing against the humerus, which causes further swelling, leaving little space left for arm movement. 


Impingement syndrome is observed in people who perform excessive overhead rotational movements. Falling onto the shoulder or being stretched can also lead to shoulder impingement syndrome.

Symptoms: 

  • Weakness in arm and shoulder movement.

  • Weakness in grip.

  • Sharp pain when you try to reach behind your back or lift your arm. 

  • Pain while sleeping on the affected side.
