We treat sports injuries, car crash injuries, and herniated discs in the upper spine causing shoulder pain. Discover the typical causes of shoulder pain along with ways we treat this as one of the leading Omaha chiropractors for families.

Understanding Shoulder Pain

Your shoulders are made up of joints, tendons, and muscles all connected to your musculoskeletal system. Whenever there is a misalignment in the bones or tissue in the shoulder, this creates inflammation. The swelling from this inflammation presses against nerves and pushes other muscles out of position. As a result, most people suffering from a shoulder injury or shoulder pain lose some or all mobility in the shoulder, which is called frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis

Causes of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be caused by trauma, and injury, or repetitive use. Infections and nerve problems can also lead to shoulder pain. Examples of these shoulder conditions include:

  • Arthritis including osteoarthritis caused by sports injuries
  • Tendinitis ranging from acute to chronic inflammation in the tendon of the shoulder
  • Bursitis, which may be accompanied by rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Shoulder instability that leads to shoulder dislocations or subluxation
  • Bone fractures within the collarbone, upper arm bone, and/or shoulder blade
  • Poor posture leading to shoulder strain
  • Auto accident injury resulting in whiplash and lower neck pain affecting the shoulder
  • Sports injuries including traumatic injuries and personal injuries 
  • Repetitive use syndrome
  • Rotator cuff injury or tennis shoulder
  • Tendon tears, typically caused by repetitive use, overuse, or advanced aging

Symptoms of Sprained and Strained Shoulders

Speaking of tendon tears, symptoms of sprained or strained shoulders include:

  • Pain in the shoulder
  • Swollen shoulder muscles
  • Bruising at the area associated with swelling and pain
  • Loss of mobility in the shoulder, i.e., you can’t lift your arm like usual
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Muscle spasms, which are associated with strained muscles
  • Hearing a popping sound when injuring your shoulder, which is associated with a sprained shoulder and a dislocated shoulder

If you are suffering from any type of shoulder pain or have injured your shoulder, treatment from Omaha chiropractors is a recommended solution.
