Shoulder Pain Q & A

How common is shoulder pain?

Most people will experience mild shoulder pain at some point during their life, however, for some patients, shoulder pain is lingering and/or more severe. In cases where shoulder pain is more troublesome and/or doesn’t go away on its own after a few days, skilled treatment may be required.

Why does shoulder pain occur?

Patients may experience shoulder pain for numerous assorted reasons. In some cases, shoulder pain occurs because of a problem with a nearby ligament, tendon, or muscle. At times, it may be associated with an impingement of the nerves in the neck radiating into the joint. In other cases, the pain comes from the shoulder joint itself. When shoulder pain stems from the joint, it will get worse when the patient moves the arm or shoulder.

Some of the most common sources of shoulder pain include arthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis. Both of these conditions cause swelling/inflammation in the shoulder joint. Other possible causes of shoulder pain include dislocation and injury.
