Shoulder complaints are common in sports such as weight lifting, swimming, and throwing, or in an occupational setting requiring overhead work. In that context, injury, when not due to a single trauma, is often due to repetitive activity or overuse. These problems can often be linked to specific positional demands. The shoulder may be the site of injury when a fall onto an extended arm transforms the shoulder into a weight bearing joint. Fracture, dislocation, tendon, or labrum damage must be considered and if found positive upon examination resulting in a referral to an orthopedic surgeon.

The primary causes of shoulder complaints generally fall into several categories with some overlap, including the following:

  • Instability (traumatic or non traumatic)
  • Impingement syndrome potentially of the biceps, supraspinatus, subacromial bursa, posterior labrum, infraspinatus and teres minor. 
  • Tendinitis/bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Adhesive capsulitis
  • Acromioclavicular (AC) separations  commonly known as "Shoulder Separations".
  • Referred pain from the cervical spine
