Causes of shoulder and arm pain

Many different factors can cause shoulder and arm pain, and much of it is down to the way we live our lives nowadays. The shoulder is a complex joint with a huge amount of possible movement. Keeping it in shape requires a good degree of fitness and muscle tone that many people are not able to maintain.

On top of that, poor sleeping position, poor posture, even carrying bags in the incorrect way, are all issues which can lead to wear and tear of the joints, as well as increasing risk of injury over time.

Of course, it can also be down to a sporting injury, which happens out of the blue, and in that case it’s important to identify the particular injury and treat accordingly.
