Shoulder Pain Relief Huntington Beach, CA

Shoulder Pain

If you have pain in your shoulder, it can be the result of many causes. One of the most common injuries occur in the rotator cuff. Some other causes of shoulder pain include bony abnormalities, sports injuries, and osteoarthritis. There may be soreness after playing a sport or lifting items. Sports enthusiasts often incur shoulder pain due to repetitive motions. Activities that require you to lift the arms can result in pain or soreness. Shoulder pain can be enough to keep you up at night.

The Rotator Cuff: What Is It?

The primary joint in the shoulder is formed by the shoulder blade and humerus, the upper arm bone. The rotator cuff itself is comprised of the tendons of four muscles that make up a “cuff” around the top of the humerus. They keep the shoulder steady when the arm is in motion. The rotator cuff can be injured and may or may not require surgery. Oftentimes, the right physical therapy is enough to heal and regain all of your function with much less pain.

Frozen Shoulder: How It’s Caused

Frozen shoulder is another name for adhesive capsulitis. It’s a shoulder condition that limits the range of motion. The cause of frozen shoulder is not entirely known, it may be caused by long periods of inactivity, diabetes or surgery. Symptoms typically include stiffness, pain or swelling in the shoulder. Gradually, the ability to move the shoulder becomes less and less. Reaching for an item may even become very difficult.
