The shoulder joint is one of the body’s most complex joints. It provides incredible movement and flexibility and is used to accomplish many daily tasks. When shoulder pain hits, most people are reminded all too quickly just how much of an integral role the shoulder plays in one’s daily routine. If you need shoulder pain relief and live in Pleasanton, CA, or surrounding locations, Dr. Godwin Sammut of Lifetime Wellness Holistic Health Center specializes in noninvasive chiropractic and complementary therapies to get you back to pain-free living.
What are the most common shoulder pain causes?
The shoulder joint consists of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that, when working at their best, provide incredible stability and mobility for many body movements. The pain generated from the shoulder joint can range from mildly annoying to intense – depending on the cause of the pain. The most common reasons shoulder pain manifests include -
Arthritis is a disorder that inflames/damages/affects the joints in the body. Arthritis, which causes pain, tenderness, stiffness, and reduced range of motion, has the potential to both inflame and damage the joint.
This condition impacts or inflames your tendons – which is the tissue that connects muscles to your bones.
A Pinched Nerve
A pinched nerve in the neck/shoulder region can easily radiate pain through the shoulder and even down your arm.
An Injury to your Rotator Cuff
The group of tendons/muscles that connect your arm bone to your shoulder blade is known as the rotator cuff. Rotator cuff injuries can be excruciatingly painful.
A frozen shoulder refers to the condition when the shoulder joint becomes so stiff that it severely restricts its motion and mobility. Trying to move a frozen shoulder can cause pain and tenderness.
Bursitis, which can also be painful, refers to the inflammation of the bursae – tiny sacs that lubricate the joints, tendons, and muscles.
