shoulder pain ft lauderdale & boynton beach, fl

Your shoulder has a broad and adaptable range of motion. When something goes wrong with your shoulder, it restricts your ability to move freely and can cause significant pain and discomfort.

Anyone suffering from shoulder pain or other chronic problems can benefit from our all-natural pain management choices. With our help, you won’t have to undergo surgery or take opioids to get your arm working again.

What causes shoulder pain?

Because of its wide range of motion, the shoulder is one of the body’s most unstable joints. Injuries might occur because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket. It is also necessary to support the shoulder joint with soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments that are prone to damage as well as overuse or underuse.

Shoulder difficulties can be exacerbated or accompanied by discomfort that radiates to the shoulder from other parts of the body due to degenerative disorders or diseases.

The following are some of the most common shoulder problems:

  • Dislocation
  • Separation
  • Impingement syndrome
  • Tendinosis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • Fracture
  • Inflamed bursae
  • Arthritis inflammation

How soon should I contact a doctor if I’m experiencing discomfort in my upper back or shoulders?

A physician should be seen if pain or limited range of motion persists in the shoulder. Any of the following conditions should be reported to our clinic for immediate attention:

  • Having a hard time moving one’s arm when clothing oneself
  • Inability to go to the top of a tall bookcase
  • It hurts to lift or carry things
  • Pushing, yanking, or reaching causes excruciating pain.

Treatment Recommended

The majority of people have shoulder pain at some point in their lives. Two-thirds of Americans, according to estimates, experience shoulder soreness. Direct injuries to the shoulder as well as degenerative disorders can be the source of shoulder pain.
Overuse causes shoulder pain in the majority of persons. The tendons near the injury can expand as a result of a repeated throwing action or harsh trauma. It becomes difficult to utilize the arm fully due to the body’s response, which puts more strain on the joints and nerves. Other reasons why shoulders get hurt include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Broken shoulder or arm bone
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocation
  • Pinched nerve
  • Torn cartilage or rotator cuff

The specific reason will determine the symptoms. For instance, fraying of the tendons of the muscles that stabilize the shoulder joint occurs with a torn rotator cuff.

Diagnosing Shoulder Pain

Ice, rest, and relaxation can all be used to alleviate minor shoulder pain. Keeping the joint from being overused will help it heal completely. However, a significant injury to the tendons or cartilage may make home recuperation impossible.
