Commonly, pain in this area is linked to an impingement of the rotator cuff tendon, a torn rotator cuff and/or adhesive capsulitis (also known as frozen shoulder).
- Stress or injury of the rotator cuff muscles
- Tear in the rotator cuff tendon
In the case of ‘frozen shoulder’ a protective mechanism of the body causes the shoulder to freeze up and become immobile.
- Discomfort in the side of the shoulder joint and top of the arm
- Pain when sleeping on the affected side
- Pain during everyday tasks such as brushing hair or reaching into back pockets
- Full assessment to determine the underlying causes of pain
- Conservative treatment including pain medication, adjustments, manipulation to area, deep tissue massage, deep tissue release, mobilisation.
If your practitioner feels you can’t be managed conservatively, you will be referred on to a consultant before being treated.
