Shoulder Pain

If you have shoulder pain due to an accident or a condition, the discomfort can significantly impact your life. At Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, DE, we provide quality chiropractic care to eliminate the discomfort and help your body heal. Before you visit us, learn more about the causes and symptoms of shoulder pain below:


Understanding Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain occurs in the region where the shoulder bone, upper arm bone, collarbone, tendons, connective tissues, and nerves connect. These bones and soft tissues are held together by the rotator cuff, which is made up of additional muscles and tendons. Since the shoulder is complex, it is vulnerable to injuries, overuse, and disease. If you are experiencing discomfort in your shoulder, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent further complications.

Symptoms of Shoulder Pain

Symptoms of shoulder pain may begin as a dull ache but later turn into intense pain. It is essential to monitor your shoulder pain and receive treatment if the discomfort becomes worse. Some symptoms of shoulder pain include:

  • Warmth or redness
  • Muscle weakness or stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Clicking, popping, or grinding
  • Arm pain, back pain, or neck pain
  • Radiating pain
  • Tenderness and swelling
  • Inability to move your arm
  • Weakness or numbness in your hand

Shoulder pain can develop from a variety of causes. Some of these causes include the following:

  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Broken collarbone
  • Osteoarthritis
