Do you suffer from shoulder complaints? Is the shoulder movement painful or difficult? Then this can have unpleasant consequences, especially if it limits you in daily activities. The shoulder is a complex system. As a result, it can cause many different complaints. A number of global causes and consequences are described below.
The shoulder joint consists of a head and a bowl. The joint is surrounded by joint capsule and tissues. All this ensures that the shoulder joint can move freely and functionally in many different directions.
However, it can happen that you get injured at the shoulder joint. This can be done in several ways. For example, you may suffer an acute shoulder injury or a chronic shoulder injury.
An acute shoulder injury occurs when someone falls on the shoulder and the complaint lasts less than 3 months. If the recovery time takes longer, it is called a chronic shoulder injury.
As soon as someone falls on the shoulder, the person may break a collarbone or dislocate his arm (shoulder luxation).
It is also possible that shoulder complaints are caused by straining the shoulder joint. A lot of repetitive movements? Or a lot of work above shoulder height? Or always working in the same working position? It may just be that this causes chronic complaints.
