Neck and shoulder pains are common complaints. Some people experience only neck pain or only shoulder pain, while others experience pain in both areas. Other associated symptoms can be headaches, numbness, tingling, poor sleep patterns, or more severe symptoms such as anxiety or depression. Symptoms vary from person to person. While some lead relatively normal lives, others are unable to work and limited in their capabilities, which can particularly disrupt their quality of life.
There are many forms of shoulder injuries, ranging from your average Rotator cuff strain and tendonitis problems to the more chronic frozen shoulder. The interesting thing about shoulders is that the nature of the injury, and how the injury came about, determines how quickly or slowly the injury heals. For example, if you get a shoulder injury playing rugby or get a bang to the shoulder from a fall, with the proper care and treatment these types of injuries usually heal very successfully. However, if a shoulder starts to be irritated, becomes very stiff and sore, and the patient gets sharp pain on lifting the arm in particular directions, this is where complications start to arise.
