Shoulder Pain Q & A

What is shoulder pain?

Your shoulder is one of your most important functional joints. However, due to the extensive mobility of your shoulder, there are many ways the joint and surrounding areas can suffer injuries, leaving you in pain.

Many different injury types can occur, causing different symptoms. The pain may be sharp or a dull ache, it can be constant or vary based on the position of your arm or shoulder, and can be located in different parts of your shoulder: either the front, back, side, or interior.

One thing is for sure, though: If your shoulder is injured, you will have limited capacity for daily activities involving your upper extremities.

What are the causes of shoulder pain?

You can have shoulder pain as a result of a specific acute injury, or it may develop slowly over time due to repeated stress or misuse of the shoulder. Examples include:

  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Bone fractures
  • Shoulder weakness or instability
  • Pinched nerves

Fortunately, treatment options are available. The experts at Align Integrated Health have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating shoulder pain using a wide range of treatment modalities for the best outcomes, helping their patients return to their normal activities.

What treatments are available?

If you have an injury, your first question will likely be, “How can I feel better?” Getting the proper treatment for a shoulder injury first requires an accurate diagnosis. The team at Align Integrated Health may order certain tests such as an X-ray to get a better idea of what is causing your pain.

Some shoulder conditions require surgery, but less invasive treatments are often available that can save you from the downsides of surgery. Chiropractic adjustments can be helpful, as well as strengthening exercises and stretching.
