Shoulder Pain Q & A

What is shoulder pain?

Your shoulder is made up of muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments that work together to secure your upper arm to your torso. Shoulder pain involves discomfort that develops due to an injury, age-related wear, or a chronic disease. See the Synergy Release Sports team if you have ongoing or extreme shoulder pain. 

What does shoulder pain feel like?

Shoulder pain may present as:

  • Limited range of motion
  • Inability to lift your arm above your head
  • Weakness
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Dull aching
  • Sharp pain
  • Burning
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Bruising
  • Warmth
  • Redness

Sometimes shoulder pain goes away over time. If not, or if the pain is extreme, contact Synergy Release Sports for an evaluation and holistic pain relief. 

What can cause shoulder pain?

Some of the common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Strains

  • Muscle, tendon, or ligament injuries

Heavy lifting, playing sports, being in a car accident, falling, or developing arthritis or osteoporosis are risk factors for shoulder pain. 

How does my chiropractor find the cause of shoulder pain?

To determine what’s causing shoulder pain and how to best treat it, the Synergy Release Sports experts review your medical history, ask about your symptoms, and complete a physical exam. You might need blood tests, X-rays, an MRI, or other imaging procedures to pinpoint the specific shoulder injury you suffer from.
