Have you ever had shoulder pain or a previous shoulder injury? Although it may come as a surprise, shoulder injuries and the associated pains are relatively common injuries.
Some of the most common shoulder injuries are: a SLAP tear (superior labral tear from anterior to posterior), shoulder bursitis, acromial impingement, other rotator cuff tear. There are four muscles in the rotator cuff with the shoulder joint functioning through a roll and glide movement.
Rotator cuff injuries are common for someone who frequently has their arms above their heads for extended periods of time, such as athletes.
If you have shoulder pain, massage can be of great benefit to you. The shoulder needs to have a good range of motion for the gliding movement to work properly. A good massage can help to restore your range of motion and soothing up tight muscles in the area.
