What Are The Most Common Causes Of A Painful Shoulder?
As mentioned earlier, shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of health issues and injuries. We have provided common causes of shoulder pain below:
- Rotator cuff injury, frozen shoulder & adhesive capsulitis
- sprains and strains (tear-off muscles, tendons & ligaments)
- Torn cartilage
- Torn labrum
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Neck problems such as slip discs & cervical radiculopathy
- Nerve impingements (impingements of neck nerves of the brachial plexus)
- Brachial plexus injury
- Avascular necrosis (bone death due to compromised blood flow)
- Impingement syndromes (impingements of tendons or muscles)
- Bursitis & tendinitis
- shoulder dislocations or fractures
- Rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
- Heart attack
- Pathological processes such as cancer in tumors
Of course, their the scariest of all shoulder pain or those associated with heart or a pathological process. Heart patients and those with hypertension that have shoulder pain with no history of injury or accidents should get a thorough medical checkup to out a heart issue. Shoulder pain and symptoms that arise from a heart issue differ between men and women, and we have listed some of these differences below:
- MEN: generally speaking, shoulder problems caused by heart issues in men will predominantly impact the left shoulder down to the left arm and the chin, and the side of the neck on the left.
- WOMEN: Heart problems that cause shoulder pain in women are not as distinct as in men. It can impact the right, left, or both shoulders, both sides of the neck, upper back, or even cause discomfort in the abdomen leading to nausea and indigestion.
Neck Problems, Slip Discs & Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain caused by neck issues and slip-discs is exceedingly common. The most associated spinal segment in patients with painful shoulders issues is the C4-C5 and the C5-C6 segments. Slip discs (bulging, prolapse, protruded, ruptured, herniated, and extruded discs) or mechanical neck problems may compress the spinal cord and spinal nerves. A simple way to possibly rule out neck issues as a source of your shoulder pain is to tilt your head and neck backward as far as you can. If the tilting or extending of the head and neck increases or reproduces shoulder pain or symptoms, you may have an impingement syndrome that involves the neck.

What Causes The Clicking & Cracking Sounds In Shoulders?
With age, our body degenerates, and this applies to the shoulder joint as well. A painless clicking of your crack sounds not worrisome and individuals over the age of 50. However, suppose the cracking, grinding, or clicking sounds accompany shoulder stiffness or shoulder pain. In that case, you may have an injury or excessive degenerative changes in the shoulder involving the labarum of the cartilage.
The shoulder labrum is a connective tissue firmly attached to the rim of your shoulder socket. The labrum’s function is to provide depth for the ball of the shoulder joint and to protect it from misalignments, subluxations, and dislocations. Slip and falls, excessive loading (more common in weightlifters and gym-goers), Or violent and rapid overhead swings can cause tears and damage to the law firm and the shoulder’s socket. Crepitus (crafting, grinding & clicking) shoulder sounds or noises accompanied by pain should be assessed through MRI examinations.
Frozen Shoulders, Rotator Cuff & Adhesive Capsulitis
Frozen shoulders, rotator cuff, and adhesive capsulitis Or conditions resulting from premature degenerative changes or injuries to one or more of the following rotator cuff muscles (SITS muscles):
- Supraspinatus muscle
- Infraspinatus muscle
- Teres minor muscle
- Subscapularis muscle
The supraspinatus and the subscapularis muscles or tendons or the most injured shoulder soft tissues. The function of the supraspinatus muscle is to abduct (helps in lifting the arm sideways or laterally). The subscapularis muscle draws the arm nearer to the body and enables internal rotation (reaching behind you). The rotator cuff muscles are the shoulder stabilizers. The strongest of the rotator cuff is the subscapularis muscle. Damage or injury to the rotator cuffs, especially the subscapularis or the supraspinatus, will make the shoulder joint unstable. We have discussed rotator cuff injuries and pain and the later section of this article.
Osteoarthritis & Degenerative Changes Of The Shoulder Joint In Patients With Shoulder Pain
The shoulder has two joints: the glenohumeral (the so-called ball and socket) and the AC joint (the acromioclavicular joint on top of the shoulders). The most common joint of the shoulder that undergoes degenerative and arthritic changes in the AC joint. The AC joint or the acromioclavicular joint is the small bump you feel on top of the shoulders. Degenerative changes in arthritic formations at the AC joint can compress, pinch, entire that ended of the supraspinatus muscle.
Degenerative from arthritic changes of the shoulder is common in athletes and those with previous injuries that were not appropriately treated. CSC Provides targeted treatments without surgery or injections for all types of shoulder issues, including those caused by degeneration of arthritic processes off the shoulder joints.
Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff Injury & Adhesive Capsulitis
The shoulder is a very shallow ball and socket joint that connects the arm to the body. It is a unique joint as it provides a great degree of mobility; however, there is a lack of stability at the extreme of certain positions (especially overextended in an overhead position). Therefore, shoulder injury usually occurs at the end range of motion due to excessive demands on the muscles, ligaments, and capsules of the shoulder.
Integrated function of soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments, and capsules around the shoulder is needed to provide stability of the joint. Damage to any of these soft tissue structures would compromise the integrated muscular function. Shoulder pain is often due to trauma, overuse, referred pain from the cervical or thoracic spine, trigger points in muscles, or radicular pain from spinal nerve compression. Shoulder complaints are common in sports or occupations requiring repetitive shoulder movements such as swimming, throwing, and overhead work.
Common Traumatic And Overuse Injury Patterns For The Shoulder Include:
- A direct blow to the front of the shoulder
- Fall on top or side of the shoulder
- Fall on an outstretched arm
- The arm being forced backward in the overhead position
- Sudden traction to the arm
- Sudden pain with heavy lifting
- Throwing a ball, baseball pitching
- Striking a volleyball
- Instability of the shoulder
- History of shoulder dislocation
Sudden shoulder pain without a traumatic injury that lasts for weeks and has resolved into stiffness and restricted range of motion in the shoulder is usually known as frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis. Irritation of cervical nerve roots in the neck, brachial plexus, and peripheral nerves may also cause pain and weakness in the shoulder.
