Causes of Shoulder Pain

Experiencing shoulder or arm pain?  There are several possible reasons. Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain may include:

  • Tendinitis: inflammation of the tendon

  • Tendon damage: full or partial tear of a tendon

  • Bursitis: damage to the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the shoulder joints

  • Frozen shoulder: pain and stiffness that tightens, causes stiffness, and restricts movement of the shoulder

  • Dislocation: arm bone becomes dislodged from its socket in your shoulder

  • Arthritis: rheumatoid arthritis as well as osteoarthritis can cause arm and/or shoulder pain

  • Fracture: break in your shoulder socket or ball

As a double board certified physician, Dr. Echezona may treat your shoulder pain with one or more of the following solutions:

  • Injections to temporarily resolve inflammation and pain 

  • Therapies to encourage healing of damaged shoulder tissue

  • Physical therapy

  • Medications such as anti-inflammatories

  • Supplements
