Other causes of shoulder pain
- Bad posture. Bad posture can do more than simply make you look shorter and fatter. It can also cause serious back and shoulder problems which can lead to permanent damage over time, and will be very uncomfortable in the meantime. If you think that your bad posture is causing problems, you can see a physical therapist or personal trainer to get help with standing upright.
- Frozen shoulder. A frozen shoulder should be fairly easy for you to diagnose, as it involves you losing all of the movement in your shoulder over time, as it is too painful for you to move your shoulder around.
- Arthritis. This should usually a number of of your bones and joints over time, but may start in the shoulder. Arthritis is treatable but cannot be cured, so it is important that you are diagnosed as early as possible and treated before the problem gets any worse. You should also be able to improve any new pain through getting treated early.
- A fracture. Pain in your shoulder that relates to a fracture doesn’t even have to come from the shoulder itself. If you have a hairline fracture on your collarbone, for example, you may feel this in your shoulder as a sharp pain that you cannot identify. You should see a GP and get an xray to identify any breaks.
- Rotator cuff disorder. This is when the muscles and tendons around your shoulder are inflamed or damaged, and thus cause pain in the shoulder itself.
