Shoulder Pain

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body and is made up of a complex system of muscles, ligaments, and bones.  Because the shoulder joint is so mobile it is also susceptible to various types of strains and injuries. In many cases, shoulder pain is the result of overexertion or muscle soreness and subsides within a few days with ice and rest.

When shoulder pain does not subside and persists for more than a few days, or when the shoulder is difficult to move or swollen, it is important to consult one of the Board Certified Orthopaedic Shoulder Specialists at OSS Health to find the underlying cause of the pain.

Shoulder pain can be the result of underlying conditions including:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • SLAP tears
  • Shoulder fractures
  • Shoulder dislocations
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Frozen Shoulder Syndrome
  • AC joint injuries

The Board Certified Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Specialists at OSS Health have helped thousands of patients with shoulder pain return to an active and healthy lifestyle using a variety of treatment options.
