Shoulder Pain

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain and How Our Deerfield Beach Chiropractors Can Help

Most of us associate shoulder pain with poor sleeping positions. However, there is a lot about our shoulders that contributes to pain. Your shoulder is made up of several joints that combine with your muscles to allow a vast range of motion around your arm, whether it is throwing a ball, scratching your back, or swimming. However, mobility comes with a price. It can cause instability, impingement, or tightness on the bony structures or soft tissues, resulting in pain.


In most cases, you may feel pain when you move your shoulders, which can get worse with time. At this point, you may need to seek shoulder pain treatment from a chiropractor. If you live in or around Deerfield Beach, Bartell Chiropractic Life Center is the place to go. Our chiropractors are ready to help you reduce shoulder pain without medication.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain 

Your shoulder is made up of several bones, tendons, muscles, and tissues to help position your arm bone at the center of your shoulder and improve mobility. When one or more of these parts is irritated, stressed, or pressured, you may experience pain on your shoulder.  Here are some of the common causes of shoulder pain:

Dislocated Shoulder

A dislocated shoulder injury happens when your upper arm bone pops out of its cup-like socket. This injury may lead to instability of the joint, which can lead to more or repeat dislocations.

Shoulder Bursae

Bursae are small sacs filled with fluid. Their primary function is to reduce friction when the shoulder is in motion. When a bursa is irritated or inflamed, it can cause shoulder pain.

Frozen Shoulder

Also known as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder is characterized by pain and stiffness of the shoulder. The signs and symptoms may start early and grow gradually. It is most common for people recovering from a mobility-related condition, such as stroke.

Rotator Cuff Injury

The rotator cuff is made up of a group of tendons and muscles surrounding the shoulder joint. It helps keep the head of your upper arm in position in the shallow socket. When a rotator cuff injury happens, you may experience dull pain, which worsens when you move your arm far from your body.


Sprains are caused by a tearing or stretching of ligaments, the tight bands that attach two bones together in the joints. When you experience a sprain, we can treat it with chiropractic care.


Tendinitis is an irritation or inflammation of a tendon, causing tenderness and pain outside the joint. The condition can successfully be treated by therapies and rest.
