Shoulder pain can have many different causes and when you’re looking to find treatment for this pain, it can often be helpful to figure out what the root problem might be. The shoulder is important to everyday mobility and helps us with countless tasks in our daily lives. Dr. Darin Bush at Mobility Spine and Sports in Fort Lauderdale, FL, can explain some of the common causes of shoulder pain and how they can be treated.
What Causes Shoulder Pain?
Most commonly, shoulder pain happens when the tendons of the rotator cuff become trapped under the bony area of the shoulder. This causes them to become inflamed and damaged and is known as tendinitis or bursitis.
Shoulder pain can also be caused by other issues like:
- Dislocation of the shoulder
- Shoulder separation
- Overuse injury
- Rotator cuff tendon tear
- Poor posture
There are ways that you can try to relieve some of your shoulder pain at home. You can ice the shoulder for 15 minutes at a time, 3 times a day. It’s important not to place ice directly on the skin to avoid frostbite. You should also be resting your shoulder and taking anti-inflammatory medication as needed.
We can assist in healing your shoulder pain and getting you back to full mobility in no time. Dr. Bush will examine your shoulder and ask about your pain in order to get a better understanding. You may need an interventional injection in the area and will want to consider osteopathic manipulation and neuromuscular reeducation.
