Shoulder Pain Q & A
What causes shoulder pain?
The first priority is to identify why shoulder pain is occurring. Did one recently fall? Or was involved in a car accident? Could this be the result of a sports injury? A workplace injury? Many people experience shoulder pain due to their work environment. For instance, if one works at a job doing a repetitive task, such as at a factory, this can lead to shoulder pain. If one is not using an ergonomic setup at a desk job, shoulder muscle may become damaged as a result. If the source of shoulder pain is unknown, there could be an underlying issue that Dr. Whitmore can address. Shoulder pain may be present because of swollen tendons, torn cartilage, or arthritis.
