If you have experienced shoulder pain in the past, then you understand how frustrating it can be to your everyday life. If you are an athlete, shoulder pain can stop you from competing at the top of your game. If you don’t play professional sports, it can prevent you from doing your day-to-day tasks. In this article, we will go over the causes of shoulder pain, symptoms that come with it, and how to ease it with chiropractic treatments.
What Triggers Shoulder Pain?
The way the shoulders are structured enables us to move in a wide range of motion. We are able to move the shoulders in a circular motion, forward and backward, up and down, and so on. But, this range of mobility makes us prone to injuries.
A common shoulder injury that causes intense pain is rotator cuff tendinitis. This is a problem that reduces movement by inflaming or irritating the tendons and muscles near the shoulder joint.
While this injury occurs in the shoulders, shoulder pain can be caused by another area of the body, such as arthritis, bone spurs, a pinched nerve, spinal cord injury, broken arm, torn cartilage, and swollen bursa sacs.
Shoulder Pain is Sometimes Not The Only Symptom
Depending on your situation, your shoulder pain may come with other symptoms, such as:
- Reduced shoulder movement and flexibility
- Sensation of tingling or burning near the shoulder joint
- Weakness of the arm or shoulder
- Serve pain deep within the shoulder joint
