Common Symptoms:

Shoulder pain can manifest in various ways, and some common symptoms we can address include:

  • Pain when raising and lowering your arms
  • Resting pain
  • Nighttime pain that hinders sleep
  • Pain at the top of the shoulder radiating up the side of your neck
  • Pain located on the outer shoulder and upper arm
  • Deep, aching pain at the back of the shoulder
  • Shoulder stiffness
  • Shoulder weakness
  • Clicking or creaking noises during movement
  • Inability to move your arm, even with assistance

Causes of Shoulder Pain:

The shoulder, a ball-and-socket joint, relies on a complex system of tendons and muscles for movement. Cartilage and fluid-filled sacs reduce friction and prevent bone rubbing, enabling pain-free movement. When an issue arises in any aspect of the shoulder, it can lead to additional problems. Early diagnosis of shoulder pain is crucial. Common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Wear and tear, especially among active adults
  • Repetitive motions
  • Injuries from sports, car accidents, or workplace incidents
  • Osteoarthritis

Diagnosing Shoulder Pain:

Our healthcare providers aim to identify the source of your shoulder pain and collaborate with you to create an effective treatment plan. This process involves detailed discussions, a comprehensive medical history review, and a physical examination. Diagnostic tools such as x-rays, ultrasounds, and CT scans may be used to uncover the root of the issues.
