From raising your hand during a work meeting to pulling something off a high shelf, your shoulder is essential to many of the movements you do throughout the day. When those movements are hindered by shoulder pain, it can interfere with your overall quality of life.
If you experience shoulder pain, you’re not alone. According to studies, up to 26% of the adult population is dealing with shoulder pain at any point in time. By determining the cause behind your pain, you can explore treatment options that will not only help alleviate your pain, but also restore its mobility and function.
Potential Causes of Shoulder Pain
Here are some of the possible medical conditions or injuries that could be causing your shoulder pain:
Rotator cuff tendinitis
Neck pain and shoulder pain are often more connected than you may think. If there is tissue, bone or a disc putting pressure on the spinal nerve in your neck, the nerve can become pinched, causing cervical radiculopathy. It can result in shoulder pain, numbness and tingling, especially during neck movements.
