Common Questions About Shoulder Pain Relief

Your shoulder is an often used ball and socket joint that permits a large range of motion. It moves in many different directions to help you complete daily tasks. When injured, you may experience a great amount of pain and lose the ability to move it freely. If you have any shoulder pain and are in the Boca Raton area, visit our chiropractor at Boca Health & Wellness Center.

What Is A Dislocated Shoulder?

A dislocated shoulder happens when there is an injury, typically a strong blow, to the shoulder and the humerus bone pops out of the shoulder blade socket. This is painful and causes numbness and instability in your shoulder.

What Are Shoulder Bursae?

The bursae are sacs of fluid that are found throughout the body, including the shoulder. These sacs provide cushion by preventing friction between the bones, tissue, and muscle. These sacs can become inflamed, which causes pain and stiffness.

What Is Frozen Shoulder?

A frozen shoulder causes stiffness and pain in your shoulder that begins slowly and gets worse. This occurs when the capsule around your shoulder becomes inflamed, thick, and tight. Scar tissue forms and there is less space for the liquid that keeps the joint lubricated. This causes limitations in your range of motion.

What Is A Rotator Cuff Injury?

It is common to tear your rotator cuff due to the overuse of the tendons or muscles in the shoulder. You may not even know you have a tear as it may not be painful at first, but it tends to get worse as time progresses.

What Is Tendonitis?

Tendonitis occurs when your rotator cuff or tendons of the bicep are inflamed. Often the tendon is pinched or the repeated motion of moving your arm above your head constantly causes this along with pain and stiffness.
