Shoulder Pain

Normal shoulder function is essential for many daily activities and sports. Shoulder dysfunction can cause significant impairment of everyday quality of life. There is a high prevalence of shoulder injuries in contact sports such as rugby and GAA and football or in overhead athletes like tennis players, squash and badminton players, however shoulder injuries are also common in the general population triggered by tasks requiring overhead reaching, heavy lifting or repetitive use of the upper limb.

There are numerous structures and/or conditions of the shoulder joint that can cause pain. Some of the main causes of shoulder pain are:

After a lifetime of playing sport, some of it serious and some not, I have picked up bumps and bangs along the way. Last year I started having problems with my knees and for my job that was a problem. Thankfully I was able to catch an appointment at Portobello Physio. After diagnosing me with hamstring tendonitis I was put on a conditioning programme that not only cleared up my knee trouble but has me way stronger so all those other bumps and bangs aren’t as bad either. I have had to go to physio a good bit over the years with my job and I can honestly say that the physio service at Portobello Clinic is one of the very best, couldn’t recommend it highly enough. A great place for sports people.
