Neck and Shoulder Pain

What Injuries Cause Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder a complex structure made up of muscles and tendons that surround a ball and socket joint. Repetitive motion injuries can cause pain and tightness throughout the shoulder. Acute or sudden injuries in the shoulder such as strains, sprains, instability, dislocations, frozen shoulder, or pinched nerves can also bring shoulder pain. These types of injuries can limit your range of motion or cause weakness and stiffness in the shoulder and arm which disrupts your day-to-day activities. If shoulder pain is not diagnosed and treated by a professional, it can gradually progress to more complicated issues which will eventually require surgery. Rather than self-diagnose, it is best to get a professional's opinion and discuss treatment options for pain relief.

What Causes Neck Pain?

The neck carries the weight of the head and is responsible for movement when turning in different directions. Pain in the neck can happen in the muscles or the vertebrae as a result of a pinched nerve, slipped disc, or an accident. Whiplash from auto accidents or injury are one of the main complaints of neck injury as the sudden movement from whiplash snaps the neck awkwardly, over stretches, and tears the tendons and ligaments in the neck. Slip and fall accidents can also cause the vertebrae to shift out of alignment. This can cause the vertebrae to push on the nerves in the neck and spread pain to other areas of the body.
