The Effects of Shoulder Pain
The East West Spine and Rehab Clinic in Smyrna helps many patients who suffer from shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can cause problems while performing even the simplest of daily tasks. Shoulder pain can be caused by many different conditions. Sometimes it is due to Tendonitis; this happens when there is an irritation that develops in and around the tendons in the shoulder area. It may lead to stiff or weak joints, including tenderness when you are trying to do some physical activity.
Other possible causes of shoulder pain are shoulder dislocation of the joints, rotator cuff strains or tears, and shoulder bursitis. Shoulder bursitis is when swelling occurs between the shoulder and the top of the arm bone due to irritation of the surrounding tendons and bursa. The swelling reduces the already small space that exists in that area and as such every time you move the shoulder the tendons are pinched between the bones. The condition can become quite painful and significantly affect your ability to function.
