Shoulder Pain and Limited Range of Motion Getting in the Way of Summer Fun?

The shoulder joint is actually one of the most mobile joints in the body. There are seventeen different muscles that surround the shoulder joint complex.

I say “complex” because people often think of the shoulder joint where the arm meets the collar bone. Your shoulder joint complex involves the shoulder blade, shoulder joint, and the clavicle.

These all play a role in giving your shoulder the mobility it needs.

With the amount of structures that surround the shoulder there can be several causes of inflammation. The muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bone can all be culprits. The three most common diagnoses for shoulder pain are rotator cuff, shoulder impingement, and frozen shoulder.

Those three are the most common diagnoses, but not the only ones.

If you are dealing with shoulder pain it’s best that you seek out a healthcare professional. They can point you in the right direction to get your shoulder back in motion.

Hopefully you have learned some helpful tips from our videos and blog posts, but as I mentioned the shoulder joint is a complex joint.

There’s so many different issues that can go on inside of it.
