What Causes My Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain may arise from the shoulder joint itself, or from any of the many surrounding muscles, ligaments or tendons. Shoulder pain that comes from the joint usually worsens when moving your arm or shoulder. Pain in the shoulder can also be referred from other parts of your body. For example, radiating pain in the shoulder may be caused by a cervical problem. Shoulder pain can be due to tendonitis from overuse, or shoulder joint instability. A very common cause of shoulder pain is soreness of the rotator cuff tendon. Shoulder pain may also be caused by bursitis, a pinched nerve, whiplash, tendinitis, or a herniated disc. It can develop in the glenohumeral joint, AC joint, or JC joint.

The professionals at Florida Pain and Rehabilitation are shoulder pain authorities, led by Dr. YiLi Zhou, a Harvard-trained, board-certified pain specialist, and neurologist. We can diagnose your condition and help you with interventional pain management treatment for your shoulder discomfort.

How Will You Diagnose and Treat My Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain is usually experienced in the topmost portion of the arm or the front of the shoulder. It is most often felt during arm movement, and it may very well be experienced only during certain motions. Understanding the root causes of your shoulder pain is necessary to its proper treatment, because sometimes it is often referred pain that is caused by another part of the body. Common shoulder pain causes can include:

  • Arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis, which is an inflammation of the bursa sacs protecting the shoulder
  • Tendonitis, or an inflammation of your tendons
  • Bone spurs, which are projections of bony tissue that form on the edges of bones
  • Cartilage tears
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Pinched nerves.

The majority of shoulder issues don’t result in pain when the arm is not in motion; however, many individuals experience discomfort if they lie on the affected shoulder. It’s important to distinguish shoulder pain from sensations that radiate down to your hand and cause numbness and tingling in your fingers. This type of condition can be caused by problems with the neck rather than the shoulder.

Make Florida Pain and Rehabilitation your premier provider of comprehensive, multidisciplinary pain management solutions to help manage your shoulder discomfort. We will perform a physical exam, which involves ruling out the cervical spine as the cause of your discomfort. Your shoulder joint mobility, stability, range of motion, strength and nerve mobility will be assessed as well to determine if they are a contributing factor. If needed, we will order an MRI to help diagnose a tear in the rotator cuff or labrum.

How Much Will it Cost to Treat My Shoulder Pain?

At Florida Pain and Rehabilitation, we understand that each patient’s shoulder pain condition is unique, which is why we take the time to develop a personalized interventional pain management plan. As a result, your costs will vary based on your unique needs. During your consultation, we will provide you with the specific cost for your customized pain management plan.

We accept most major insurance providers, including the majority of workers’ compensation plans. We also welcome all standard forms of payment, in addition to offering convenient financing and payment plans to make pain management affordable for all of our patients.
