Shoulder soreness: What cause it?

Shoulder soreness is one of the most common problems for people to experience. It can be caused by many things, including improper posture and overuse. When your shoulders are sore and stiff, it can affect your ability to lift objects or perform everyday tasks like getting dressed and driving. This article will discuss how you might be able to reverse the effects of muscle soreness after an injury or strain occurs and give tips on how to prevent future injuries from occurring in this area as well!


Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon. It is most common in the shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands. Tendonitis can be caused by:

  • Repetitive stress on the same muscle group over time;
  • Stress or trauma to a muscle group;
  • An imbalance between opposing muscles (for example: tightening of the biceps when there’s already a tight triceps).

Damage of muscles and tendons.

As you may have guessed, shoulder soreness can result from damage of muscles and tendons. A sudden increase in the use of the shoulder is usually what causes this problem, such as when you lift something very heavy without proper preparation. An injury to the shoulder can also cause pain and stiffness in your shoulder muscles.

Incorrect posture.

The first thing to do is check your posture. We all slump over our computers, tablets and smartphones. That’s no good for the back, neck or shoulders. A few stretches can help keep you in shape throughout the day:

  • Stand up straight, pull your shoulders back and look straight ahead at a point about 20 feet away (or at least make sure your computer screen isn’t too close).
  • Hold a large book in front of you with both hands, then release it so that it falls onto the floor below your feet (your arms should be hanging loosely by your sides). Retrieve the book using only one hand while keeping proper posture. This exercise helps strengthen back muscles that support poor posture

How can muscle soreness be treated?

To treat muscle soreness, you need to ensure that the affected area is not in any pain. If it is, then the best thing you can do is rest and let your body heal itself naturally. A massage will help remove toxins from the muscle tissue and encourage blood flow to the area. This may also prevent further damage from occurring if done immediately after an injury or workout.

You can ask your family or friends to help you or buy a handheld massager to massage yourself. In addition to this, heat therapy can relax tense muscles by increasing circulation and improving blood flow throughout your body. Heat therapy should be applied for 15-20 minutes per day until symptoms improve, which usually takes about two weeks for moderate soreness and three months for severe pain.

If you’re experiencing shoulder pain, it’s important to get it checked out by a medical professional. They can help identify the cause and provide treatment options that will ease your discomfort. It may take some time before your shoulders feel normal again, but in most cases they will recover with rest and treatment.
