Shoulder Pain Q & A

What is shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain refers to discomfort in or referred pain from the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is a complex system of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which holds the arm in place and gives it a full range of motion.

Injury to any part of the shoulder joint could cause shoulder pain, as well as referred neck and arm pain. Neck pain may also radiate into the shoulder. Because shoulder injury could be either a source of your shoulder pain or the result of an injury elsewhere, it's essential you see a provider for an accurate diagnosis. 

What causes shoulder pain?

There are a few musculoskeletal conditions that may cause symptoms such as burning, tingling, swelling, redness, tenderness, immobility in the shoulder. These include:

  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Brachial plexus injury or nerve damage
  • Whiplash, referred from the neck
  • Arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis or tendon injury
  • Bursitis

Inflammation in the shoulder tissues and nerves causes pain in the shoulder, which may be related to any of these conditions, as well as overuse, trauma, strains, or fractures.
