Some causes of shoulder pain can appear obvious, such as auto accidents or overly-energetic sports activities. Other are more subtle however. Here are just a few possible causes of your discomfort that we will investigate before making a specific diagnosis:
A frozen shoulder leads to greatly restricted movement. Even though the condition is well known, it’s also surprisingly rare and can often be wrongly identified as the cause of discomfort.
Problems originating in the mid-back and the neck can result in the appearance of pain in your shoulder. We’ll look closely at these two areas to check that your problem is not originating elsewhere.
Loose or unstable joints in the shoulder are frequently a result of traumatic injuries, although they can also develop gradually over time.
It’s much less common to form arthritis in the shoulder than in the hip or knee, but can occur.
Impingement syndrome is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain and can be caused by tendinitis in the rotator cuff itself.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of the causes of shoulder pain. We can help you to an accurate diagnosis of exactly what is behind your problem, and from there identify the best treatment protocol for your needs.
