Shoulder Pain Q & A

What causes shoulder pain?

Your shoulder is a combination of several joints, tendons, and muscles that work together to allow for a wide range of movement. Because your shoulder joint is used for so much, it’s susceptible to issues arising from wear and tear, which causes pain. 

Most shoulder pain is caused by:

  • Tendon inflammation or tear
  • Instability
  • Arthritis 
  • Fracture
  • Bursitis

If your shoulder is in pain due to an acute injury, or chronic pain, you can get medical treatment to help with both the pain and the underlying cause.

How do you diagnose shoulder pain?

Your specialist at RehabOne Medical Group begins every session with a physical examination and a discussion of your symptoms. The focus is on accurately pinpointing the root cause of your shoulder pain so they can develop an appropriate treatment. 

How do you treat shoulder pain?

Based on your diagnosis, your specialist may suggest a number of therapies.

Injection therapy 

Injection therapy uses targeted injections to relieve pain caused by bursitis and osteoarthritis. The pain relief that injection therapy provides makes it easier for you to benefit from active rehabilitation exercise therapy that you do as a combination treatment. 

Chiropractic therapy 

If your shoulder pain is the result of an injury or instability, like tendinitis, RehabOne Medical Group offers chiropractic therapy. This can resolve shoulder pain caused by irritated tendons, nerves, muscles, and ligaments.

Acupuncture and yoga

The practice also provides specialists in acupuncture to ease pain and help restore your shoulder mobility. This therapy is often combined with therapeutic yoga to learn strengthening exercises.

Pain counseling

RehabOne Medical Group provides professional pain counseling sessions to educate you on pain coping strategies.
