Shoulder pain affects thousands of people living in the 10022 zip code. One of the most common causes of shoulder pain is people caring too much weight which stresses and strains the joints and ligaments. Here at Balanced Health Medical in Midtown, our chiropractor and staff’s goal is to alleviate our patient’s pain and to educate them so they minimize the risk of re-injury.
It is important to understand the anatomy of the shoulder and the role individual parts play in regards to pain and discomfort. Inside of the shoulders, there are joints which are supported by tendons, ligaments, and muscles. The source of pain in the shoulders could be the result of malfunctioning joints are a combination of joints, tendons, and ligaments combined.
It is important to note that shoulder pain does not necessarily have to be a result of a disease process. There are, however, many conditions that cause shoulder pain. Some of the most common conditions associated with shoulder pain include tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and bursitis. There are also some lesser-known disease processes that cause shoulder pain. Some examples include avascular necrosis which happens as a result of bone tissue death because of a lack of blood flow and polymyalgia rheumatica, which is a disorder that is caused by inflammation. It causes pain and stiffness in the muscles of the shoulders. Shoulder pain can also manifest as the result of acute medical conditions like septic arthritis and heart attacks. Septic arthritis is an infection in the joints of the shoulder. It spreads rapidly. In the cases of septic arthritis and any condition concerning the heart immediate attention should be sought to see a chiropractor in NYC or a traditional medical practitioner.
