Shoulder pain is often the reason for GP visits, a common dysfunction due to laxity. The high mobility of this joint makes it prone to a variety of injuries:
the most common being the Subacromial Impingement, where a narrowing inside the shoulder joint occurs, compressing the soft tissues structure leading to an inflammation process. These structures will then swell up and contribute to reduce the space, causing pain and loss of mobility.
Rotator cuff disorders are also common. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint and help to keep it stable. Repetitive actions of this group of soft tissues can sometimes cause strains.
