What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Several different conditions and/or injuries can result in shoulder pain. Some of these are permanent but others can be cured completely with the right treatment. Even the permanent conditions can be treated by a chiropractor for a reduction in pain and increase in function.

The first step to healing your injury is to establish what is causing your pain. To that end, the chiropractor will pull together information by:

  • An oral personal, medical, and familial history.
  • A neurological examination to determine nerve function, damage, and sensitivity.
  • A physical examination of the affected area and surrounding tissues.
  • Advanced imaging techniques like x-ray, EMG, MRI, and/or CAT scan.

These tests tell a trained chiropractor like Dr. Kurt Michaux at Michaux Family Chiropractic can formulate a plan of action that addresses your precise cause of shoulder pain.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Some shoulder pain originates in the shoulder itself. They include:

  • Trauma to the shoulder
  • Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis
  • Overuse like repetitive movements
  • An underlying pathology such as infection and/or tumor, although this is exceptionally rare

The pain in your shoulder can also come from injuries in other areas of your body. This is called referred pain. Injuries and pain in the muscles, ligaments, or whatever can send pain throughout the back, neck, shoulder, and arm region.

The preponderance of shoulder conditions and injuries treated by a chiropractor include:

  • Adhesive Capsulitis – commonly known as Frozen Shoulder
  • Tendinitis – inflammation of the tendons of the shoulder
  • Dislocated Shoulder – Patellar dislocation is when the shoulder is out of the patellofemoral groove it slides in
  • Shoulder Bursae – inflammation of the bursa (a small sac of fluid near the shoulder joint)
  • Strains – tearing/stretching muscle or tendon
  • Sprains – a violent wrenching or twisting of the ligaments of a joint

Shoulder Pain Treatments

Often the pain felt in one’s shoulders come from another area of the body altogether. The spinal canal contains all the nerve endings of the body that send signals of sensation to your brain. Addressing issues within the spine as well as the shoulder itself can work wonders for relieving shoulder pain.

Among the treatments that may be used to relieve your pain are:

  • Spinal decompression
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Rehabilitative exercise and stretching regimens
  • Acupuncture
  • Trigger Point therapy
  • Cross friction
