What are the common symptoms of shoulder pain?
Painful shoulder symptoms are actually very common and generally increase with age. Individuals with careers that require repeatedly performing overhead motions, such as painters and construction workers, are likely to experience these issues at an earlier age. Swimmers and other athletes are also more prone to developing shoulder problems.
Common symptoms of shoulder pain include:
- A dull or strong ache deep in the shoulder
- Pain in the back or the front of the shoulder
- An inability to move the arm or shoulder without pain
- Pins and needles
- Burning sensation
- A decreased range of motion
- Arm weakness
The above symptoms need to be properly assessed by an experienced Physiotherapist, who can diagnose the cause of your shoulder pain and provide the most appropriate treatment, management and advice.
