Physical therapy for shoulder pain in Tilburg

Team Physio Vital

Are you suffering from shoulder pain?

Suffer from shoulder pain is one of the most common physical complaints. The reason is that the shoulder is a very complex joint, in which multiple joints work together to form a pattern of movement. There are also numerous tendons, muscles and capsules that make up the shoulder give its stability. So you understand that these joints must run smoothly among themselves. If this is not the case, you can go compensate and that, in turn, can lead to complaints or overuse of tendons and muscles. Pain in your shoulder so can have many causes, but it is important that you keep moving your shoulder. More importantly, make an appointment with the physical therapist so he or she can diagnose the underlying condition and create a treatment plan.

How does shoulder pain occur?


Pain in the shoulder is a regular occurrence, sometimes even a recurring injury. Possible causes are heavy physical work or sports. The symptoms are often caused by an upward movement of the arm. Then there can be radiation to the upper arm or to the shoulder blades.

We can often divide shoulder pain into 3 types:

  1. Under the roof of the shoulder blade, certain anatomical structures can become irritated. You usually feel this when you move the arm up sideways. You should think here of bursitis or tendonitis of one of the shoulder muscles. But also complaints resulting from a fall or aging tendon tissue.
  2. Complaints related to structures between the head and socket of the shoulder. For example, one of the most well-known complaints is a frozen shoulder or osteoarthritis of the shoulder joint.
  3. It is also possible to have shoulder pain as a result of neck pain. Sometimes complaints you feel in the shoulder have another cause. Usually then a nerve from the neck is responsible for this pain. Other small joints around the shoulder can also be the cause of shoulder pain. The joint with the clavicle or the joint with sternum can be responsible for shoulder pain.
