Shoulder Pain


What is it? Shoulder tendinitis is a common overuse injury in sports (such as swimming, baseball and tennis) where the arm is used in an overhead motion. The pain – usually felt at the tip of the shoulder and referred or radiated down the arm – occurs when the arm is lifted overhead or twisted. In extreme cases, pain will be present all of the time and it may even wake you from a deep sleep.


Statistics:  As per statistics, 6 out of 10 causes of shoulder pain is linked with supraspinatus tendonitis.

According to the survey, statistics show that while women only incurred only 33% of the total number of injuries at work, they incurred 65% of the tendonitis injuries and 61% of the repetitive motion injuries.

Important Facts:   People at risk include carpenters, painters, welders, swimmers, tennis players and baseball players. The average patient is a male laborer older than 40, and the shoulder pain is on the same side as his dominant hand (for example, right shoulder pain in a right-handed person).


Volleyball players are particularly prone to shoulder tendonitis, inflammation of the tendons that support the shoulder.

If you have tendonitis, it’s very important to heal it quickly and completely. If you don’t, it may plague you forever.
