Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is actually several joints connected by tendons and muscles. Because it provides an incredible range of motion for daily activities and specialized sports, the shoulder is susceptible to pain from orthopedic instability or soft tissue encroachment. The shoulder also contains fluid-filled bursa sacs that cushion and pad bones allowing muscles and tendons to glide over bones. Shoulder pain can be caused by orthopedic conditions including:

  • Tendonitis- orthopedic inflammation of the tendons caused by wear and tear over years of use, degenerative disease or excessive use
  • Bursitis-inflammation of the bursa sac
  • Arthritis- orthopedic inflammation, swelling and stiffness of the joint
  • Rotator cuff injury-caused when a tendon splits or tears
  • Dislocation-when bones move out of the normal orthopedic position
  • Frozen shoulder-inflammation of tissues that limit the normal orthopedic range of motion
  • Orthopedic strains or sprains-overuse or over-exertion causing inflammation of soft tissues
