Q & A

What is shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain may feel uncomfortable or crippling. It could occur because of an injury, age-related wear, arthritis, or another chronic disease. 

Sometimes the cause of shoulder pain heals on its own over time with rest, but in other cases, you need medical treatment for the relief you desire. See the Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab team at the first sign of a problem.

What does shoulder pain feel like?

If you have a shoulder injury, it could appear as:

  • Inability to lift your arm above your head
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Warmth
  • Muscle soreness
  • Dull aching
  • Numbness
  • Burning pain
  • Tingling
  • Bruising
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Shooting or stabbing pain
  • Weakness
  • Muscle tightness or spasms

Your discomfort could be mild, moderate, or severe. Don’t live with shoulder pain or take addictive pain medicines when holistic remedies are within reach at Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab.

What are common risk factors for shoulder pain?

The following factors increase your risk of developing shoulder pain:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fractures
  • Joint inflammation

How does my doctor diagnose the cause of shoulder pain?

To determine what’s causing shoulder pain and find relief, your Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab provider reviews your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and order blood tests, X-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, or other imaging procedures if necessary.

How is shoulder pain treated?

Your personalized shoulder pain treatment plan may include:
