Shoulder Pain Q & A

What types of pain affect your shoulders?

Your shoulder joint forms a ball and socket, connecting your upper arm bones with your shoulder blades, allowing you a full range of motion in your upper body.

You may experience shoulder pain due to issues with your shoulder joint, or you might have referred pain related to spinal or pinched nerve problems. The complexity of your shoulder joint and the frequency and intensity of use means that many types of pain can affect one or both of your shoulders.

What are the common causes of shoulder pain?

Your shoulders take a lot of stress and wear-and-tear in daily life, more so if you frequently lift heavy objects or use your shoulders in ways that cause repetitive stress. Many sports, including baseball and tennis, put a lot of pressure on your shoulder’s muscles, tendons, and joints.

If you suffer a repetitive stress injury like a rotator cuff tear, you may suffer from shoulder pain and dysfunction in your shoulder joint.

Degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can also take a toll on your shoulder joints, resulting in pain and loss of range of motion.

Pinched spinal nerves in your neck (cervical spine) are another common cause of ongoing shoulder pain.

How can you address shoulder pain and dysfunction?

You don’t have to live with shoulder pain. At Apollo Chiropractic PC, Dr. Dube uses manual manipulation and other pain management techniques to relieve your shoulder pain and improve joint motion, smoothness, strength, and function.

For example, myofascial release therapy can help with frozen shoulder issues. You may also benefit from cervical spinal manipulation to reduce pain from relevant pinched nerves.

If you need other types of shoulder joint treatment, such as surgical treatment or even surgical joint replacement, Dr. Dube can recommend the right providers and specialists for you. The team at Apollo Chiropractic PC knows how to handle workers’ compensation paperwork, as well, if your shoulder pain is related to a work-related injury on the job.
