Shoulder Pain Q & A
How common is shoulder pain?
Most people will experience mild shoulder pain at some point during their lives. However, for others, shoulder pain is chronic and/or more severe. In cases where shoulder pain is more bothersome and/or doesn’t resolve on its own after a few days, professional treatment may be required.
Why does shoulder pain occur?
You may experience shoulder pain for several different reasons. In some cases, shoulder pain occurs because of a problem with a nearby ligament, tendon, or muscle. In other cases, the pain comes from the shoulder joint itself. When shoulder pain stems from the joint, it will get worse when you move your arm or shoulder.
Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include arthritis and bursitis. Both of these conditions cause swelling in the shoulder joint. Other possible causes of shoulder pain include dislocation and injury.

How effective is treatment for shoulder pain?
Many cases of shoulder pain will resolve completely with the right treatment. Over time, the issue causing the shoulder pain heals, and the treatment strengthens the shoulder to prevent the condition from recurring. In cases where shoulder pain is related to a chronic condition like arthritis, a cure may not be possible. However, by participating in regular treatment sessions, you can maintain good function in the shoulder, build strength, and minimize the symptoms.
