Shoulder Pain Q & A

What causes shoulder pain?

Your shoulder is a complex joint of muscles, tendons, and ligaments that all work together to give you a wide range of motion.

When any of these joint structures become inflamed or damaged, it can cause shoulder pain and limit the joint’s mobility. Common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Tendinitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendon tears
  • Impingement
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Nerve compression

You might also experience persistent shoulder pain because of instability in the joint or a dislocation.

When should I seek medical attention for shoulder pain?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Integrity Spine & Orthopedics if you suffer from shoulder pain that lasts longer than two weeks. Book an appointment if the pain doesn’t go away with rest and over-the-counter medication.

An evaluation is also necessary if you have sudden or severe shoulder pain after a fall or other injury.

Our team of orthopedic specialists offers on-site diagnostic imaging to identify the cause of your shoulder pain. We also physically examine your shoulder to assess your joint’s range of motion.

Based on your exam results, we personalize a treatment plan to relieve your shoulder pain and improve the function of your joint.

How is shoulder pain treated?

Your treatment plan for shoulder pain depends on which kind of injury or disease you have. Our team typically focuses first on nonsurgical treatments to improve your shoulder health. This can include:

  • Medication
  • Injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Regenerative medicine

If your shoulder pain is caused by nerve compression, you might benefit from minimally invasive radiofrequency ablation (RFA). This treatment uses radiofrequency energy to destroy damaged, painful nerves to provide long-lasting pain relief.

You might be a candidate for shoulder surgery if you suffer frequent dislocations or joint instability. Our team might recommend surgery if you have severe ligament or tendon tears that can’t heal naturally. We specialize in ligament reconstruction and other minimally invasive surgeries to repair damaged tissues that support your shoulder joint.

Our team can also recommend lifestyle changes you can make to prevent additional shoulder pain. We can refer you for physical therapy, where you receive exercises you can do at home to strengthen your shoulder muscles.
