Shoulder Impingement

Shoulder impingement is an “umbrella term” used to describe a range of conditions that can cause pain on the outside of the arm. It usually presents as you lift your arm to the side or reach the arm back to put on a shirt or a rucksack. 

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive capsulitis)

Adhesive capsulitis, often referred to as frozen shoulder, is a condition which causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint due to the capsule that encloses the shoulder joint becoming thicker, contracted and tighter than it should be.

Acromioclavicular joint sprain

An acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) injury is where there is pain and inflammation in the small joint at top of the shoulder where the collar bone (clavicle) meets the tip of the shoulder blade (scapula).

Shoulder Bursitis

Shoulder Bursitis often occurs in combination with other conditions such as a rotator cuff tear or rotator cuff tendinopathy. “Shoulder Bursitis” refers to inflammation of a small sack of fluid that sits on top of the shoulder under the tip of the shoulder called the acromion. 

Rotator Cuff Tear and Tendinopathy

A rotator cuff tear can occur as a result of trauma or chronic overload. Often this may present in combination with other conditions such as a subacromial shoulder bursitis.

Acromioclavicular joint osteoarthritis

An acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) injury is where there is pain and inflammation in the small joint at top of the shoulder where the collar bone (clavicle) meets the tip of the shoulder blade (scapula).

Distal clavicle osteolysis

An acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) injury is where there is pain and inflammation in the small joint at top of the shoulder where the collar bone (clavicle) meets the tip of the shoulder blade (scapula).
