There are many conditions that can cause shoulder pain & reduce your range of motion in the joint, Arthritis, Injury and even hormonal changes can all be factors and so to begin with it is essential to get a correct diagnosis to effect the best outcome.
If you are experiencing discomfort in your shoulder this may simply be due to a soft tissue strain, perhaps due to overload during a workout ?
Of course it may be that you have simply risen one morning to find you have a dull ache in your shoulder which goes away once your up and moving.
One of the most common indications that you may have something else going on is when you notice difficulty moving your arm in directions that you had previously been able to do without a problem, things like combing your hair or putting on your jacket ?
When we begin to develop a problem in a joint or muscle what typically happens is the surrounding tissue tightens and thus restricts the limbs movement in an attempt to protect the area which is a perfectly normal response by the body however, if the body does not effectively resolve the issue by itself, the longer the area remains imobile the more one begins to loss the range of motion in the said joint or muscle group, left too long the surrounding muscles begins a process of atrophying (Muscle Wasting) this only serves to exacerbate the situation.
The good news is the quicker you get yourself on a treatment plan the quicker you will regain ROM and begin to return back to your full potential.
Typically a combination of deep tissue sports massage therapy, Ultrasound and other sports therapy modalities can be extremely effective in the rehabilitation of many conditions that affect the shoulder complex such as Rotator Cuff Syndrome, Adhesive Capsulitis and even arthritic change.
