Broad shoulders

Getting shoulder injuries when canoeing can hamper your enjoyment of the sport. So, as part of National Canoeing Week, we take a look at ways you can minimise the risks.

Unlike a number of other sports, canoeing is heavily reliant on upper body conditioning. However, this conditioning isn’t just about pure strength. The joint needs to be supple, mobile and flexible. And the tendons and ligaments need to be well conditioned as well as the muscles.

Let’s take a more detailed look.

Front Shoulder Pain – Possible causes and possible treatments

By | shoulder pain | No Comments

What causes shoulder pain?

Front shoulder pain is often the most common complaint in the shoulder.

Whilst the shoulder joint is incredibly versatile, it is also quite complex. It is also involved in a large number of movements carried out in upper body exercises in the gym. And when it comes to racquet sports there is often a lot of force generated through the joint.

The shoulder joint is comprised of three bones, the scapula, humerus, and clavicle. Or in simpler terms, the shoulder blade, upper arm, and collarbone.

The arm is kept stable in the shoulder joint by something known as the rotator cuff. As well as the rotator cuff performs this vital function, it can also, by contrast, be the source of many injuries and pain.

In fact, just as front shoulder pain makes up the proportion of shoulder injuries, rotator cuff problems account for the biggest proportion of shoulder complaints.
