What are the types of Shoulder injuries?

Shoulder injuries are a complex condition so this general information is provided at a level that can be easily understood. We suggest you book an appointment with Caring Hands Physiotherapy for more specific information and individualized shoulder pain treatment Calgary.

  1. SHOULDER BURSITIS: Shoulder bursitis causes an aching pain over the outer aspect of the upper arm. The pain is typically worse when raising the arm above head and lying on the shoulder. Resting the arm by the side of the body typically eases the pain.
  2. ROTATOR CUFF TEAR: Shoulder pain and weakness when the arm is elevated, especially under load such as reaching up to place something heavy in an overhead cabinet.
  3. FROZEN SHOULDER: This condition is often unexplained and exaggerated inflammatory reaction of the shoulder capsule. It is very painful when stretched or compressed and eventually thickens and contracts causing significant stiffness.
  4. SHOULDER DISLOCATION: Shoulder dislocation implies that the ball has slipped completely out of it’s socket. This usually results in damage to the bone or soft tissues and can result in recurrent episodes of instability.
  5. SHOULDER ARTHIRITIS: This condition is termed as osteoarthritis or ‘wear and tear’ of the shoulder. This involves deterioration of the smooth articular cartilage that lines the joint surfaces of the shoulder.
