Common "Shoulder Injury" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Shoulder Injury

A shoulder injury is more common during athletics that implicate excessive, repeated overhead motions but can also occur during daily activities like washing or hanging curtains. When there is a shoulder injury, the shoulder becomes stiff, feels like popping or sliding out of the shoulder socket, and lacks the strength to perform daily routines. A shoulder injury can be due to dislocation or impingement due to extreme rubbing of shoulder muscles against the shoulder blades.
