Shoulder pain and injuries may occur can be caused by many factors, including manual labor, falls, playing sports, overuse or repetitive motion, and even sleeping on your side. Conditions such as arthritis, torn cartilage or rotator cuffs, pinched nerves, or frozen shoulder may also cause pain. The most common shoulder injuries include rotator cuff tendinitis and impingement syndrome. Also, as we grow older, especially for those 60+ years of age, shoulder problems become common due to degeneration of the surrounding soft tissue. Mechanical stimulation with VibraCool® can provide pain relief on contact for joint pain or pain caused by restricted motion, muscle tension, or spasm.
