Common Causes of Shoulder Pain
If you don’t already know what’s causing your shoulder pain, or you’re not aware of any injuries that may have resulted in the shoulder pain you’re experiencing, it may be time to think about the possible causes of your shoulder pain. Our chiropractors are adept at diagnosing and treating a wide range of shoulder injuries and conditions that contribute to shoulder pain, and with our help, you can get a better understanding of why your body is in pain and how you can find relief. Some common causes of shoulder pain include:
• Rotator cuff injuries, including tears, strains, tendinitis, and bursitis (fluid buildup in the joint)
• Frozen shoulder, which includes a decreased range of motion due to excess tissue buildup
• Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, which deals with the blood vessels, nerves, and muscles from your back to your arms.
• Tendon sheath inflammation
There can be more causes of shoulder pain, and to fully understand the symptoms of these disorders, conditions, and injuries, reach out to our natural medicine doctors to gain a better understanding of how one of these may be affecting your shoulder.
