Shoulder Pain


Pain in shoulder is a very frequent presentation in routine orthopaedics OPD. The origin of pain can be from Cervical Spine, from Chest, from Abdomen and from Shoulder itself. As a clinician, its our responsibility to make a proper diagnosis before treating the patient. The causes and presentations of actual shoulder pain vary according to the age group.


There are two types of young patients – One who are office workers (sedentary lifestyle) & Second – People participating in sports activities (Athletes)

Office Goers: These patients come with pain starting from base of neck and spreading to both shoulders. Unfortunately, most of them are being treated as Cervical Spondylosis patients. Infact they have muscle imbalance problem which can be easily treated by simple exercises which patient can do even in office.

Athletes: Athletes participating in over head spots like Tennis, Swimming, Cricket…. etc. come to us with shoulder pain. This type of pain presents when the athlete rise to throw/hit something over his head. It is called “Dead Arm Syndrome”. The reason behind the pain is repetitive trauma to joint capsule in a particular position. It causes scaring and tightening of one area of the joint leading to abnormal movements. They can be treated by physiotherapy and modification of activities in early stage. Unfortunately many of these patients either compromise with their performance level or come so late that surgery is required.


There are various conditions in elderly patients causing shoulder pain.

FROZEN SHOULDER: Patient complains of stiffness of shoulder, pain in all attempted movements and disturbed sleep. It is most commonly found in diabetes and bed ridden patients. It is usually treatable by regular physiotherapy but very few resistant cases need Arthroscopic Surgery.

ROTATOR CUFF TEAR: With ageing process, the tendons of rotator cuff muscle become weak and brittle. They get torn with minor trauma. The symptoms are difficulty in lifting the arm and night pain. 50% of these patients can be treated conservatively but rest 50% need Arthroscopic Repair.

IMPINGEMENT: These patients have reduced distance between the ball and socket of shoulder joint. Whenever they try to lift their arm overhead, they feel painful restriction. The treatment is generally physiotherapy but sometimes injection in the joint is also helpful. In extreme cases, Arthroscopic Decompression is done.
