Do you suffer from shoulder complaints? Is moving the shoulder painful or is it difficult? This can cause unpleasant consequences, especially if it limits you in daily activities. The shoulder is a complex system. This can result in 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 with joint capsule and tissues. All of this ensures that the shoulder joint can function functionally and freely in many different directions.
However, it can happen that you get injured at the shoulder joint. This can happen in different ways. For example, you may experience an acute shoulder injury or a chronic shoulder injury.
An acute shoulder injury develops as soon as someone falls on the shoulder and complaints last less than 3 months. If the recovery time takes longer than is spoken of a chronic shoulder injury.
As soon as someone falls on the shoulder, it is possible that the person breaks a collarbone or that his arm shoots out (shoulder luxation).
It is also possible that shoulder complaints arise due to overloading of the shoulder joint. Many busy repeatable 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.
