When everything is in working order, your shoulder joint gives your arms and your back the wide range of motion they need to carry out everyday tasks and then some. But as with any of the more complex joints in your body, this versatility also makes your shoulder more prone to injury. Whether you experience ongoing shoulder pain or it only happens when you move a certain way, the doctors at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic in Littleton, Colorado, can help you get to the root of the problem.
The shoulder joint, which is actually made up of several joints combined with tendons, ligaments, and muscles, is susceptible to a wide range of injuries and degenerative conditions. Common shoulder problems include:
Most the problems that cause shoulder pain fit into one of these 4 categories: Instability, arthritis, tendon inflammation or injury, and bone fractures.
While most cases of shoulder pain are caused by some problem that directly affects the joint itself, shoulder pain can be a symptom of a problem in your neck. There are 8 nerves rooted in the vertebrae of your neck (cervical spine) that extend into your shoulders. If a neck injury compresses or irritates any of these nerves, it can cause pain that radiates down your neck and into your shoulder. This pain may be mild or severe, constant, or sporadic, and is sometimes accompanied by a noticeable tingling sensation.
