Shoulder discomfort is a prevalent issue that can affect individuals of all ages, and understanding its potential causes is crucial for effective resolution. The shoulder joint, known for its multidirectional mobility, is susceptible to injury and strain. If you’re experiencing shoulder pain, seeking guidance from experienced chiropractors in the Greater Boulder area including Erie and Superior, such as Dr. Alison and Dr. Lindsey, can be instrumental in addressing and alleviating this discomfort.


Various Factors May Contribute to Shoulder Pain

  • Rotator Cuff Tear
    The intricate network of muscles and tendons forming the rotator cuff can sustain tears due to repetitive overhead movements, aging, or sudden trauma. Symptoms may include pain, weakness, and limited mobility.
  • Shoulder Arthritis
    Arthritis, presenting as joint swelling and stiffness, affects the shoulder in forms such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. This condition leads to pain, reduced mobility, and stiffness, impacting overall range of motion.
  • Frozen Shoulder
    Characterized by painful stiffness, frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is common in individuals with a history of diabetes, strokes, or cardiac issues. The exact cause remains unknown.
  • Bursitis and Tendinitis
    Inflammation of the shoulder joint, causing considerable discomfort, occurs with bursitis affecting the protective fluid-filled sacs and tendinitis impacting the connecting tendons. Overuse, injury, or aging can trigger these conditions.
  • Dislocated Shoulder
    When the humerus bone in the shoulder dislodges from its joint, it results in pain, inflammation, and restricted movement. This can happen due to falls, sports injuries, or accidents involving sudden twists.
