Arm and Shoulder Pain Treatment

The structure of the shoulder joint is similar to that of the hip: a ball & socket joint. Your shoulder, however, has a much greater degree of movement. This is because the bony socket for the ball of the shoulder is shallow, allowing for a greater degree of freedom. This is at the expense of stability. The shoulder relies heavily on the muscles of the shoulder girdle for protection & stability. Proper coordination and function of these muscles is imperative, otherwise the movement of the joint is affected and pain and stiffness can result.

PHYSICAL EXAM AND OTHER TESTS WILL BE ABLE TO DETERMINE WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING IS AT CAUSE:

NERVE ROOT IRRITATION: "Pinched nerve" shoulder pain can result from pressure on the cervical nerve roots. BURSITIS - TENDONITIS Years of overuse or a specific injury affect the tendons and/or bursae.
ROTATOR CUFF MUSCULAR TEAR: One or more of the rotator cuff muscles can become inflamed or torn by injury.
DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS: Abnormal joint motion leads to wear and tear on the cartilage in the joint.
FROZEN SHOULDER SYNDROME: When your shoulder is in pain and you continue to hold it in one position, this can cause adhesions to develop which are referred to as frozen shoulder.
CERVICAL SPINE OR NECK: In order for the shoulder muscles to properly function, the nerves that supply them must have 100% function. These nerves come from the cervical spine or neck.
