Shoulder Pain Causes

You could have shoulder pain from many different types of conditions or injuries. These include the following:

  • Arthritis — Shoulder arthritis can develop as a result of wear and tear over time from acute injuries or conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Fractures — The collarbone, upper arm, or shoulder blade could all experience a fracture (cracked or broken bone). This is most often caused by a fall, accident, or sports-related contact.
  • Tendon damage — Tendons are small cord-like connectors between your muscles and bones. Tendon damage can occur from acute injuries like throwing a ball or chronic injuries such as a degenerative disease.
  • Inflammation  Shoulder inflammation occurs with soft tissues, tendons, or ligament damage. Pain associated with inflammation can lead to restricted mobility in the shoulder and difficulty performing basic movements.
  • Instability — In order for your shoulder to remain stable, the top of your upper arm bone must be securely held inside the shoulder socket with tendons. Shoulder instability occurs when it comes out of the socket (dislocates) partially or fully.
  • Other conditions
    • Nerve problems,
    • Tumors,
    • Infections, or
    • Disk herniation (ruptured cushioning in the neck that can cause arm or shoulder pain)

 Our shoulder specialists will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to treat your shoulder pain.
