9 Most Common Shoulder Problems

Lifting more than you can handle—don’t lift anything too heavy for YOU

Muscle imbalances—muscles all around the shoulder must be strong, not just your chest or biceps

Bursitis—a bursa is a fluid filled sac that acts as a cushion between bones, ligaments, and tendons. Overuse can cause bursa to become inflamed

Normal wear and tear—osteoarthritis and fraying of the rotator cuff tendons

Shoulder instability—some people have lax ligaments and are prone to dislocations

Shoulder impingement—the ligaments of the shoulder get trapped and pinched under the acromion process

Frozen shoulder—the connective tissues surrounding the shoulder thicken, cause pain, then restrict motion

If you have questions about the health of your shoulder, ask Mike, Chip, or Sharon.
