What is Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder is a complex structure that is comprised of several joints, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. You rely on your shoulders for even the smallest tasks, and when you have shoulder pain, the effects can be detrimental to your mobility. You may experience chronic, dull, or acute pain when you try to use your arm or move your shoulder.

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Some of the common ailments that affect the shoulder are:

  • Pinched nerves
  • Damaged cartilage
  • Muscle strains
  • Tears in the ligaments and tendons

What is Frozen Shoulder Treatment?

The clinical phrase for a frozen shoulder is “adhesive capsulitis.” The condition causes pain and stiffness in the joint of the shoulder. The symptoms typically begin as minor pain and gradually worsens, sometimes to the point of losing complete use of the shoulder area. Frozen shoulder treatment aims to reduce discomfort and improve range of motion.

What is Rotator Cuff Treatment?

The muscles and tendons of the shoulder area form the rotator cuff that helps to hold the shoulder in place. This design is very effective for range of motion, but also means that any injury to the tendons and muscles can allow the shoulder joint to slip. When you have a rotator cuff injury, you may have a dull throbbing or find it hard to sleep on the affected side. Some people are unable to sleep on their backs. Rotator cuff treatment is recommended to promote healing and improve range of motion.

What Are the Benefits of Shoulder Pain Treatment?

  • Conservative, non-surgical treatments
  • Improves mobility and sleep
  • Allows the rotator cuff injury to heal naturally
  • May reduce the chances of complications in the future
