Shoulder arm pain symptoms are experienced by the majority of adults at some point of another, especially as they get older. There are several causes to these symptoms. This article will summarize the main sources of this problem.
Pain in the shoulder can come from any anatomical structure within the joint. Another common source is the neck in the form of a herniated disc or pinched nerve. Less common sources of a painful shoulder are carpal tunnel syndrome (only in severe cases), an irritated diaphragm, or from a heart attack. Most commonly the shoulder itself is the culprit.
There are some tell-tale signs to watch for and these contain pain when lying on the shoulder, pain with overhead activities and general stiffness and loss of motion. The Primary causes of Shoulder & Arm Pain include several forms of arthritis, torn cartilage, or a torn rotator cuff.
Chiropractic treatment can be used to treat frozen shoulder, a bad inflammation which is also known as adhesive capsulitis. Doctors of chiropractic are well trained to treat pain and trigger points that are located between the shoulder and the spine.
Professional and novice athletes that injure their arms or shoulders need to undergo proper treatment care and rehabilitation and chiropractors who have extra training in sports medicine can give them well.
