Common symptoms of shoulder injuries are pain, tension and stiffness for which osteopathic treatment can be very helpful in most cases. Frequent causes of shoulder pain are linked to desk based work and long hours in front of a computer as well as bad poor posture such as slouching and allowing your head to poke forwards. Other common causes include jobs that involve raising the hands above the level of the shoulder such as tennis, swimming and those that involve throwing such as javelin.
