Primary causes of Shoulder Pain

In order to properly treat your shoulder, Dr. Copeland will first look to diagnose the primary cause of pain. It is normal to find patients who are not aware of the cause of the pain in their shoulders. Common causes of shoulder pain that require treatment include:

  • Tendinitis -There is always a cord that connects the muscles to the bone, this cord is known as the tendon. If there is an inflammation of the tendon, the victim is most likely to get a shoulder pain. Acute tendinitis can be caused by an excessive ball throwing or other overhead activities. Chronic Tendinitis is likely to be caused by arthritis or tear and wear caused by the aging process.
  • Frozen Shoulder - This is a problem which is indicated by a stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. The signs and symptoms always start gradually before advancing to worse within one to three years.
  • Strains and Sprains - A shoulder strain occurs when a shoulder muscle is overstretched while a shoulder strain is caused by an injury to the shoulder joint.
  • Rotator Cuff Injury - Rotator cuff is composed of shoulder muscles and tendons which keep the head of the upper arm in place. When the rotator cuff is injured, this can lead to an acute shoulder pain and it can get more serious when an emergency health attention is not acquired.
