Shoulder Pain

If you experience shoulder pain, your consultant will want to investigate to understand what the underlying cause of the pain is.  Once this is established you will be recommended the appropriate treatment to elevate your pain.

Pain is quite common; according to the NHS it affects 3 out of 10 adults in the UK each year.

What is shoulder pain?

There are a number of shoulder issues that can cause pain, and with the right care from your GP and consultant, can have a successful resolution.

These are the most common issues and complaints in relation to shoulder pain:-

  • Collar or upper-arm fracture
  • Dislocation
  • Frozen Shoulder - this particular condition is quite debilitating and can often result in a high degree of pain or discomfort, very little movement of the shoulder and in some cases no movement at all
  • Shoulder joint instability
  • Rotator cuff - the rotator cuff are a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint itself
  • Tendonitis from over-use
  • Shoulder instability

What should I do if I've got shoulder pain?

In the first instance you can either contact us directly or visit your GP. You should expect to have a physical examination of the shoulder so your consultant or GP can ascertain the differences between the shoulders, any redness, any potential dislocation or swelling and bruising.

Once the cause of your shoulder pain has been diagnosed, your GP should be able to recommend treatment, or refer you to a specialist.
