Shoulder Pain FAQ's

What can cause shoulder pain?

The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint made up of multiple muscles and tendons. This type of joint allows for a wide range of movement, but can also be the reason behind the injury. If a repetitive motion injury is
present, it can cause pain and tightness throughout the shoulder. Sudden injuries, strains and sprains, instability, dislocations, frozen shoulder, and pinched nerves can limit your range of motion and cause weakness and stiffness in the shoulder and arm. Shoulder pain starts in the neck, usually. The shoulders and neck are interconnected in such a way that if anything affects one, the other will be affected as well. Shoulder pain is often "referred pain," meaning that it originates somewhere else.

How long will it take before I experience relief?

Pain relief is dependent on the nature of your shoulder pain and the underlying cause. To get back to full capacity, a number of factors will come into play, such as the severity of the injury, the length of time
you've had it, and any ongoing health conditions that could prevent you from healing quickly.
