  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: The shoulder joint is very mobile and can dislocate completely or partially. This can lead to shoulder instability.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and their tendons that surround the shoulder. The likelihood of tears in this area increases with age. Symptoms often appear gradually and include pain and stiffness.
  • Frozen Shoulder: Pain in the shoulder is normally the first symptom of Frozen Shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis. This can be worse at night and can disturb sleep.
