Shoulder pain is a common ailment for many individuals in Coventry and Warwickshire, and is typically caused through general wear and tear of the cartilage which can lead to degenerative arthritis or injury.
The shoulder itself is very susceptible to injury due to the fact that the shoulder socket is smaller than the ball which it holds, and therefore is very reliant on the ligaments, tendons and surrounding muscle to keep everything in place. The shoulder consists of two cartilages – the first is articular cartilage which enables the bones to move around freely whilst the second cartilage is called the labrum which is more fibrous.
These effectively enable the shoulder to be supple and strong, allowing the shoulder to move freely whilst still being strong enough to push, pull and lift.
