What is Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain refers to any discomfort, aching, or pain in or around the shoulder joint. The shoulder is a complex structure that consists of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues. Several factors can contribute to shoulder pain, and the causes can vary, including overuse, injuries, or underlying medical conditions.

At Greenbell Medical Clinic, we recognize the impact shoulder pain can have on daily activities. Our approach involves a comprehensive examination to identify the root cause and a personalized treatment plan, often incorporating physical therapy techniques to enhance shoulder function and alleviate pain.

Understanding the Condition

  • Prevalence: Shoulder pain is common across various age groups and genders. According to studies, approximately 18-26% of adults experience shoulder pain at any given time.
  • Signs and Symptoms: Pain may be sharp or throbbing, with accompanying weakness and difficulty in raising the arm. Everyday tasks become challenging.
  • Complication: Untreated shoulder pain can lead to persistent functional limitations, affecting daily activities and potentially causing long-term joint damage.

Etiology and Risk Factors

  • Rotator cuff injuries: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, helping to keep it stable. Injuries to the rotator cuff, such as tears or strains, can cause pain.
  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis): This condition involves the inflammation and thickening of the shoulder capsule, restricting movement and causing pain.
  • Tendonitis or bursitis: Inflammation of the tendons (tendonitis) or bursae (bursitis) around the shoulder can result in pain and limited range of motion.
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome: This occurs when the shoulder’s tendons get pinched between the bones, leading to pain, especially when lifting the arm.
  • Arthritis: Osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can affect the shoulder joint, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
  • Fractures or dislocations: Injuries such as fractures or dislocations of the shoulder bones can cause acute pain and require medical attention.
  • Nerve-related issues: Conditions like pinched nerves or nerve compression in the neck or shoulder region can result in pain that radiates to the shoulder.
  • Referred pain: Pain originating from other areas, such as the neck or upper back, can be felt in the shoulder.
  • Overuse or repetitive strain: Engaging in repetitive motions or overusing the shoulder, especially in activities like sports or certain jobs, can lead to strain and pain.
  • Poor posture: Incorrect posture can contribute to shoulder pain over time, especially if it leads to muscle imbalances and strain.
