Shoulder Pain: Impingement

Shoulder impingement refers to when the top of the shoulder blade, or the acromion, rubs on the rotator cuff tendons and bursae when a person lifts their arm.

Impingement can limit movement, cause pain and weakness in the arm, and lead to bursitis and tendinitis.

Shoulder Pain: Tendon Tear

Tendons can sometimes split or tear. This damage may be partial, or the tendon may completely detach from the bone. A tendon tear can result from injuries, persistent overuse, and general wear and tear to the shoulder as a person gets older. In the shoulder, tears typically affect the tendons of the rotator cuff and biceps. Tendon tears can cause pain, swelling, and weakness or reduced mobility in the arm.

Shoulder Pain: Bursitis

Bursitis refers to inflammation of the bursae, which are small, fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between bones and soft tissues in joints. Bursitis typically results from injuries, overuse, and repetitive movements of the joints. However, infections and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and gout can also cause inflammation of the bursae.

Shoulder Pain: Tendinitis

Tendinitis refers to inflammation of a tendon, which are the cords that connect muscles and bones to one another.

In the shoulder, tendinitis typically affects the tendons of the rotator cuff or those that connect the shoulder blade to the bicep. Inflammation of these tendons can cause pain around the shoulder joint, and the skin in this area may appear flushed and swollen.

Improve Posture

In addition to regular stretching, there are many ways to improve posture. These include:

  • Using a posture device: There are braces or shirts that gently pull back the shoulders to improve the way that the person sits and stands.
  • Staying active: Exercise can help build up the muscles necessary for maintaining good posture.
  • Being mindful of devices: Make sure that computer screens and keyboards are at a height that encourages healthful posture. Desk chairs and work surfaces should also be at an appropriate height.

Better Posture Exercises: Plank

Several variations of the plank exercise can help improve posture. Below is the basic plank, but a person may find different versions more or less effective.

Begin by lying on the stomach. Shift the position so that the weight of the body rests on the forearms and toes, with the rest of the body hovering above the floor. Some people prefer to have their arms outstretched and their hands, not their forearms, touching the floor.
