What Causes My Shoulder Pain?

It is very difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of your shoulder pain. Apart from direct trauma to your shoulder, most injuries in this area are caused by multiple problems over a long period of time. Below are some of the contributing factors that could be causing your shoulder pain.
An increase in the amount of exercise you have been completing in the gym
Poor Posture when seated and exercising
Muscular Imbalances around the shoulder joint
A physical job putting more stress on the shoulder joint
Previous injuries to the shoulder joint
Direct trauma to the shoulder, such as a fall or accident

Why Do I Suffer with Shoulder Pain?

As we have evolved the shoulder joints have become more prone to injury & pain. This is because of the increased load they are under throughout our daily lives. Just think about the amount of movement our shoulders complete every day. Whether it’s: reaching for something high up, carrying bags, or even working out in the gym, they are constantly being put under pressure.

How To Help Treat Your Shoulder Pain at Home?

If you are experiencing shoulder pain, you can try these steps at home to help treat the problem. Please note this is general advice and may not work for all shoulder pain cases. If you have tried these steps and are still experiencing pain, then please seek professional advice.

Apply Ice to the painful areas, to help reduce inflammation and pain. Complete this 2x a day for 5-10 minutes.


If you are experiencing muscle cramps or stiffness, please use heat instead.

Try using the non-injured side for daily activities.
Take more breaks when using your laptop or phone.
Be more mindful of your posture when seated. Placing a cushion behind the lower back when seated can help with this.
Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise, specifically those involving the arms.
Take anti-inflammatory medication.
Increase the number of anti-inflammatory foods in your diet to help the healing process.
Try to sleep on the non-injured shoulder or on your back.

"It worked - and faster than I could have dreamt possible. I had a chronic groin injury which had suddenly started getting worse. With a few weeks of physio from these guys it was completely healed and I had 100% flexibility back. Not only that but they were able to greatly speed up my recovery from a knee injury. I was told it would take a year to get over by NHS but now I'm walking on it normally and able to dance and work out with almost no limitations. I am now fitter and better educated than when I walked into the clinic and will be using what I learned from this process in my ongoing fitness. Put bluntly, these guys are worth it."

“My name is Farid, I’ve been coming to Fit2Function for three months now having previously been to so many places. I tried everything acupuncture, massage, osteopaths, you name it. When I first came to Fit2Function, I had a high 8/10 pain but with the help of Laser Therapy and Shockwave Therapy I am almost back to normal. I feel better and I am now able to work out in the gym two times per week with no limitations. I would recommend Fit2Function clinic to everyone with lower back pain. It’s the best thing to do for your health and good luck to everybody.”

Farid Hamjab, 52, London

"I found out about Fit2function clinic through Instagram and I contacted them because I had Sciatica and shoulder pain. I ended up taking two treatments to deal with both the sciatica and shoulder pain. I couldn't move my arm and the pain used to wake me up during the night. We've started with Shockwave Therapy and Laser Therapy to reduce the pain and kick start the healing. From not being able to move my arm, I now have full function, no pain at all and able to play Handball and Volleyball again"

George has helped me so much over the last few weeks, treating a hamstring injury and creating a strengthening program to make sure it doesn’t happen again! Treatment allowed me to run pain-free almost immediately and the specific strength exercises have meant lasting results. He has made my first injury rehab / physio experience a positive one and although I’m doing everything I can to avoid another injury, I’ll definitely be back should I have an issue.

Beatrice Bowlby, 24, London

I recently had a few sessions at this physio clinic, and I have to say, it was an outstanding experience. George was absolutely fantastic - not only was he extremely knowledgeable, but he also had a genuine care for my well-being. He provided insightful advice and effective treatments that have significantly helped with my knee issues. I truly appreciate the personalized approach and the dedication to my recovery. I definitely recommend this clinic to anyone in need of physiotherapy. Their professionalism and expertise are top-notch!

Enrico Contaldo, 29 London

Very impressed by the effectiveness of the treatment. I chose to see Anna given her background as an athlete - she was a pleasure to interact with and was on point with diagnosis and mix of therapy and exercise which had my lower back in a much better place very quickly. I also have to travel a lot with work and her advice was practical and tailored well to my circumstances. Would thoroughly recommend her and I know exactly where to go if I have any future issues. Thank you!!

Steven Heanly, 45, London

I went to Fit2Function and worked with Anna for 7 sessions. I had a knee injury that had been causing my problems for years & after just 1 month I'm on track to get back to 100%. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend her & Fit2Function for any sports physiotherapy you need.
