    Shoulder Pain

    The shoulder is the body's most mobile joint. We use the joints daily. With so much repetitive motion, impingement around the rotator tendons is possible. These irritations and impingements, surrounded by nerves and blood vessels, will cause swelling, leading to shoulder pain. 

    Shoulder pain can be a pain in the neck, shoulder, even upper back . It can be caused by a wide range of factors and conditions. Shoulder pain can present as a dull ache, a sharp pain, swelling, tightness, or weakness. This pain can occur anywhere along your neck, shoulder, arm, or fingers. 

    Causes of Shoulder Pain

    One of the most common causes of shoulder pain is rotator cuff tendinitis, which causes swollen, inflamed tendons. This condition can cause pain to radiate to the base of your neck. Shoulder pain can also be caused by a sleeping posture misalignment or an unusual movement.

    Work Station

    We've recently seen an increase in shoulder problems as a result of work-from-home and remote learning. Because the ergonomics at home are not conducive, one's posture can also impact the neck and shoulder region. This will result in neck, shoulder, and arm pain

    Sleep

    Sleeping Posture

    If you prefer sleeping on your sides, selecting a proper and supportive pillow is also essential. If the pillow is too low or too high, it will aggravate the shoulder and may result in additional strain and impingement on the muscles and tendons.

    Impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, subluxation, strains and spasms from overexertion, and joint instability are all shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can also be caused by another injury, most commonly in the neck or biceps. This type of pain referred to, usually does not worsen with shoulder movement. If you are unsure what is causing your shoulder pain, a consultation with a Chiropractor will put you on the right track to recovery.
