How Shoulder Pain Occur?
Shoulder Pain or Rotator Cuff Injury is usually a result of too much exertion from using a shoulder joint. Repetitive motion, such as carrying heavy bags or throwing something, can contribute to shoulder pain (rotator cuff injury, frozen shoulder, bursitis shoulder, shoulder tendonitis).
Overuse injuries are most common among athletes. Usually, symptoms include pain when moving the arm, swelling, and loss of motion.
Exercises that strengthen the muscles in the shoulder can help in dealing with rotator cuff injuries or shoulder pain. As for shoulder blade fractures, these can happen with any activity that involves throwing, such as basketball or softball. They are caused by the impact of the thrower’s shoulder blades hitting the ground or other hard surface. Most shoulder pain seen with this kind of fracture are those that occur at the beginning of the throw.
This is because the shoulder muscles are most tense and overwork when throwing, which causes them to mis-align and cause the problem. To reduce your chances of shoulder pain related to this particular kind of fracture, it is important to warm up well before attempting your throws and to stretch well before and after injured muscles. Note that after 50 years of age, it’s more common to get frozen shoulder or bursitis shoulder or shoulder tendonitis.
