Shoulders are most commonly injured by falls or when playing sports. (Body building, cricket, tennis, rugby, squash...).The shoulder is the loosest joint in the body. It requires a great range of motion with a degree of stability for normal functional activities.
The ligaments, muscles and tendons around the shoulder play an important role in stabilising and controlling purposeful movement through a complex series of biomechanical inter-related movements of the shoulder blade and collarbone.
Symptoms of shoulder injury include: pain, catching , weakness, dead-arm, pins and needles, numbness, grinding and stiffness.
These symptoms can also originate from damage to the cervical spine. It requires a careful investigation by a qualified practitioner to arrive at the correct diagnosis.
