Shoulder Pain Q & A

Why do I have shoulder pain?

Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint surrounded by muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. If you feel discomfort, it could be a sign that any of these components have been damaged due to injury, wear-and-tear, or disease. Shoulder pain can be a sign of:

  • Spinal stenosis
  • Dislocation or fracture
  • Rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
  • Sprains or strains
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Torn cartilage

In some cases, shoulder pain may have nothing to do with your shoulder. Heart disease, gallbladder issues, and kidney stones can all lead to shoulder pain. Because you could have a serious condition that’s causing your shoulder issues, it’s important to have a thorough evaluation and get to the root of your issue.

What are the symptoms of a shoulder injury?

If you have a shoulder injury or chronic condition — such as arthritis — in your shoulder joint, you’re probably going to feel pain and discomfort in your shoulder. It’s also common to experience:

  • Limited range of motion
  • Neck pain or stiffness
  • Arm weakness, tingling, or burning
  • Pain that worsens with activity

Shoulder pain isn’t anything you should ignore, even if it seems minor. The team of pain specialists at Metro Pain and Vein Centers offers several types of treatments for shoulder pain, so you can get the relief you need right away.

How is shoulder pain treated?

Before putting together your customized treatment plan at Metro Pain and Vein Centers, your dedicated pain specialist will spend time evaluating your symptoms. They may order X-ray or ultrasound imaging to get a clear image of bones and soft tissues that may be affected.

Once your practitioner has made a diagnosis, they can often start treating you on the spot. Effective shoulder pain treatments may include:

  • Nerve or stellate ganglion blocks
  • Trigger point injections
  • Steroid injections
  • Epidural injections

You may need a combination of therapies or more than one treatment to get the best results. Rest assured, the team at Metro Pain and Vein Centers offers the most effective shoulder pain solutions available.
