Shoulder Pain Q & A
What Causes Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain can be caused for many reasons. Some of the more common causes of pain in the shoulder are the result of conditions such as:
- Neck and upper back tightness
- Spinal misalignment
- Abnormal patterns of movement
- Athletic injuries and automobile accidents
Some of these are the result of localized pain in the shoulder, but the spine is often a probable source of pain. Even a minor spinal misalignment can press on the nerves within the shoulder and cause pain. What presents as shoulder pain can be more properly referred to as pain from the spine.
What are the Symptoms of a Shoulder Injury?
Symptoms of a shoulder injury can be subtle or develop into more major issues. All symptoms involving the shoulder should be monitored carefully and treated immediately to avoid any increase in the problem. Symptoms include:
- Shoulder pain that lasts more than a week
- Shoulder pain that goes away and then returns frequently
- Difficulty raising your arm above your head
- Trouble or pain when carrying objects
- Pain in the shoulder joint that becomes more pronounced in the evening
- Any visual signs of damage to the joint such as bruising or swelling
- Unusual snapping or clicking sensations in the joint during movement
