What causes Arm & Shoulder Pain?

Pain in the shoulder and arm is often due to muscle or tendon damage. It can also occur as a result of damage to the peripheral nerves in those areas or from an ongoing health condition such as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, arthritis, frozen shoulder or repetitive strain injury.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)

Thoracic outlet syndrome is a group of disorders that occur when blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) are compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck, numbness or pins and needles in your fingers.

Over time using a computer, or various sports can cause the body to adopt poor postures. Using our specialised T.O.S. assessment & screening we can often pick up problems which may have been completely overlooked in previous examinations. An X-Ray or MRI may show changes if the issue is a structural problem but often these are clear or show only mild wear and tear which is normal with NO disc or Joint problems of any significance.

Functional  problems within the muscles (the muscles in front of the throat, ribs and collarbone) overlying the brachial plexus which is the nerve bundle that supplies the upper limbs, is often the problem.
