• Shoulder and Arm Pain


  • Causes of Shoulder Pain

    Shoulder pain and arm pain often are a result of one another.  Your shoulder (or GH joint) is the most moveable joint in the body.  With all this range of motion occurring in the GH joint it is often the site of dysfunction and pain.  The shoulder is composed of four rotator cuff muscles, which when working in harmony help keep the shoulder centrated in the socket.  Any muscle imbalance in one of these four muscles causes abnormal joint motion and stress/strain to the soft tissues in the area often resulting in pain down the arm/into the hand, and trouble moving your arm overhead.

    Abnormal motion of the shoulder/dysfunction causes forces and motion to be compensated for elsewhere in the body.  This is often the cause of neck pain.

    Causes of Shoulder Pain and/or Arm Pain Can Be:

    • Strains from overuse
    • Tendinitis from overuse
    • Shoulder joint instability
    • Carpal tunnel
    • Dislocation
    • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
    • Collar or upper arm bone fractures
    • Frozen shoulder
    • Pinched nerves (also called radiculopathy)
