Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a common complaint. With the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body, shoulders are prone to pain. Our orthopedic experts relieve shoulder pain for all types of patients — from professional athletes to weekend warriors.

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

There are three common reasons patients with shoulder pain come to see us:

  • Labral tears: The labrum is fibrous tissue which helps stabilize the shoulder joint. It can become injured from repetitive shoulder motions, falling into an outstretched arm, or from a direct blow. Symptoms include shoulder weakness, a popping or clicking sensation during movement, and pain when the arm is lifted above the head.
  • Rotator-cuff injuries: This collection of muscles and tendons that surround the ball-and-socket joint of the shoulder provides stability and rotation. Rotator-cuff injuries are common and can be caused by repetitive motion or acute trauma to the area. Symptoms include weakness in the shoulder and pain that can make simple activities incredibly difficult.
  • Bicep tendonitis: This condition is an inflammation of the tendon that attaches the bicep muscle to the shoulder and is typically the result of overuse. Symptoms may include irritation, swelling, weakness in the arm, and pain made worse when the arm is raised above the head.

How Is Shoulder Pain Treated?

Shoulder pain can be treated initially with over-the-counter medications and prescriptions.

At NexGen, we treat shoulder pain using an integrative approach that may include physical therapy, joint injections, acupuncture and when needed ultra-minimally invasive procedures. Our goal is to accelerate and enhance the recovery process for our patients.
