What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Here are some common shoulder pain causes: rugby player being tackled during a game and sustaining shoulder injury

  • Inflammation or strain to one of the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder can result in pain or stiffness with movement and can also cause weakness in the shoulder while trying to perform activities involving the shoulder. 
  • Symptoms of rotator cuff tendonitis are pain with movement across the body, pain with lifting something away from the body, and a painful arc which is pain that appears as you are raising your arm overhead and then disappears at the end range motion.
  • Arthritis in the shoulder joint can lead to inflammation in the joint capsule also causing pain and stiffness with shoulder movement and can significantly impact activity.

If your shoulder feels like it is going to pop out of the socket, then generally you have a weakness issue that causes instability of the glenohumeral joint which can lead to more significant problems.

Treatment Options for Shoulder Pain

Treatment for shoulder pain has several options: Knoxville chiropractor adjusting a patient's shoulder while laying on a drop table

Generally, you will need to decrease the inflammation in the shoulder to decrease the pain, you can try taking OTC medication or getting a steroid injection to have an immediate pain reduction but this usually doesn’t solve the issue causing the problem long-term and a reoccurrence of the pain is likely.

A physical therapist or chiropractor can perform an evaluation to determine the root cause of the pain. Treatment will usually consist of soft tissue mobilization, and joint mobilization to correct any restrictive or ROM limiting factors and to reduce stress on the injured structures.  A strengthening program with progression will be initiated to stabilize the shoulder for the best chance at long-term success and reduce the risk of re-injury in the future. 

Additional Options

Other modalities such as dry needling, acoustic shockwave, class IV laser, cupping, or taping techniques can aid in the rehabilitation process to restore you to your previous level of function.
