Shoulder Pain

Sometimes shoulder pain is “true shoulder” pain (coming from the joint) and sometimes its in the muscle between your shoulder and neck. If the pain is more in your muscle follow the advice relating to neck pain. If you have pain in your upper arm or in or around the shoulder joint itself this is usually not caused by work can be irritated if you have injured outside of work.

Simple steps you can take to help with shoulder pain:

  1. Make sure your desk-based assessment is up to date for your current situation. If you have pain you may need to change the way you are sitting or working at your desk space.
  2. Try and avoid overhead working.
  3. Don’t lift or move anything from above shoulder height.
  4. Try and make sure you are sitting upright in your chair and not rounding your shoulders.
  5. Try using some ice for no more than 15 minutes, making sure you place a towel or piece of fabric between the ice and your skin.
  6. Try these exercises to help improve your shoulder range of movement and strength
