What are the Most Common Causes of Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain affects millions of people of all ages. There are many different reasons you could be experiencing shoulder pain, including injury, mechanical problems, arthritis, and other problems. Some of the most common conditions that cause shoulder pain include:

  • Arthritis — The most common type of shoulder is osteoarthritis due to normal “wear and tear,” which causes swelling, stiffness, and pain. However, other types of arthritis may occur due to inflammation and injury. Symptoms of shoulder arthritis include pain that worsens with use, limited range of motion, a grinding sensation, weakness, and difficulty sleeping.

  • Fractures — Most shoulder fractures are caused by high-impact trauma such as falls and car accidents and most commonly involve the collarbone (clavicle), the top of the upper arm (proximal humerus), and the shoulder blade (scapula). Symptoms vary slightly depending on the exact location of the fracture but commonly include, pain, swelling, deformity, bruising and limited range of motion or movement.

  • Dislocations — Dislocations occur when the bones on opposite sides of a joint do not line up properly. Shoulder dislocations can occur within multiple parts of the shoulder, including the collarbone (also known as a separated shoulder), the sternoclavicular, and the ball and socket joint—either at the front (anterior) or the back (posterior). Symptoms include pain, deformity, loss of movement, and sensation of a “dead arm.”

  • Rotator Cuff Tears — Rotator cuff tears occur when tendons (the tissues that connect muscle to bone) around the shoulder joint are either partially or completely torn. Rotator cuff tears typically occur due to trauma or injury such as a fall, or from normal “wear and tear” over time due to repetitive motions. Symptoms include pain, weakness, and grinding or cracking sensation or sounds when moving the arm.

If you think you are experiencing the symptoms from one of the conditions listed above, contact our Patient Advocates to schedule an appointment.

Should I Seek Medical Treatment For My Shoulder Pain?

Many types of minor shoulder pain respond well to self-care measures or more conservative treatment, such as over-the-counter pain medications, rest, or physical therapy, however, in some cases, surgery may be required.

If you are experiencing the following, it may be time to seek professional medical treatment for your shoulder pain.

  • Severe shoulder pain that is associated with an injury
  • Not able to perform normal daily activities
  • You’re experiencing loss of mobility or weakness in the shoulder
  • Have redness, pain, and swelling
  • See an obvious deformity in your shoulder or arm

As with any shoulder injury or condition, it’s important to seek medical advice and treatment before the condition becomes too serious. Whether non-surgical or surgical treatment, the path to a pain-free life waiting is for you.
