SHOULDER

OVERUSE INURIES

Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

The rotator cuff is comprised of four main muscle:

1. Supraspinatus

2. Infraspinatus

3. Teres Minor

4. Teres Major

5. Subscapularis 

What is happening: Tendons (the things that connect muscle to bone) become swollen and weaker causing pain. Calcification can occur and is mostly seen on the suprapinatus tendon. The cause of this is unknown.*

Causes

1. Those who are wheelchair bound.

2. Sports activities such as baseball, tennis, swimming.

3. Swollen bursae (the fluid filled sacs in the joint).

4. Sleeping on one shoulder. 

5. Poor posture

6. Weakness and joint instability. 

Symptoms

1. Pain when at rest

2. Loss of strength and stability

3. Weakness in arm and/or hands

4. Swelling

5. Joint stiffness

6. Restricted range of motion

7. Inability to lift arm over head

Biceps Tendinopathy

Biceps brachii has two heads: short and long head. The bicep is located on the front of arm between the shoulder and elbow.

What is happening: Many times the pain in the bicep is a referred pain from rotator cuff tendinopathy. True biceps tendinopathy is a result of higher volume movements that cause inflammation of the long head of the bicep.  

Causes

1. Those who are wheelchair bound.

2.  High volume weight training such as bench press or dips.

Symptoms

1. Pain with passive stretching of biceps

2. Tenderness with palpation of bicep region. 

SHOULDER OVERUSE INJURY EXERCISES

Impingement

A shoulder impingement and overuse injuries go hand in hand. Many times an impingement is the result of continued stress added to an established overuse injury like rotator cuff tendinopathy. 

What is happening: Swelling takes place in and around the shoulder causing increased pressure in the tendons and lower blood supply. In turn, this causes weakening of tendons and eventual "fraying" of said tendons. This type of stress can cause a cascade of muscle dysfunction and lead to bone spurs or further rotator cuff damage. 

Causes

1. Those who are wheelchair bound.

2. Sports activities such as baseball, tennis, swimming.

3. Swollen bursae (the fluid filled sacs in the joint).

4. Sleeping on one shoulder. 

5. Poor posture

6. Weakness and joint instability. 

2.  High volume weight training such as bench press or dips.

Symptoms

1. Pain at night

2. Pain from front of the shoulder to the side of arm

3. Weakness

4. Restricted range of motion

5. Inability to lift arm over head
