Shoulder pain is normally occurs due to compromised shoulder position and is very common in the over 40’s. The shoulder is a very complex structure. It has incredible mobility, but at the cost of stability. The shoulder joint cannot be looked at in isolation, and should be assessed in relation to the shoulder blade, bicep and neck mobility.
