Shoulder Pain Q & A
What causes shoulder pain?
Shoulder pain can be caused by irritation or injury to the shoulder joint or surrounding muscles, ligaments, or tendons. Typically, shoulder pain occurs as a result of sports injuries, accidents, overuse, or strains.
Certain medical conditions and problems can cause shoulder pain, including:
- Torn cartilage
- Broken collarbone
- Broken arm
- Tendon rupture
- Heart disease
- Dislocated shoulder
- Rotator cuff injury
- Gallbladder disease
Shoulder pain might be associated with arthritic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis involving widespread inflammation and pain that comes and goes in flares.
How can I ease my shoulder pain at home?
At home, you might be able to resolve mild shoulder pain with over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen, and you can avoid using your shoulder in ways that cause additional pain or worsen your pain.
Apply an ice pack to your painful area every 15-20 minutes and alternate with a heat pack.
If you aren’t getting relief with these simple at-home methods and you still have concerns, effective treatment options are available at Throgs Neck Multi Care, P.C.
